Really enjoyable cheap meal

I think this place is great for a number of reasons. The sushi is quite good, although I'm sure it's not the best in Japan. The prices are great, and there is an English menu that makes things a little easier. But for me the best part is the go around. It lets you see the sushi before you... read more

This is a small and closely packed sushi bar located in Kyoto. Queues can get pretty long in the evening so get there early if you can. Lunchtime is pretty quiet where you can enjoy Musashi's sushi nicely. The sushi is fresh with a lot of variety. The best part is the standard 130 yen per sushi plate that is... More

We went there on a rainy day, we didn't have to queue. The sushi was delicious and we ate quite a lot for what would be 10 pounds each. Definitely recommended.

Food was some of the best sushi I've ever eatten, simple but delicious dishes for 130 yen a plate its a bargain! You just pick what you want off a convey belt ( description provided in english for types of seafood) other are... More

130 yen for each plate is worth the money. Every plate is so fresh and tasty. Must be there early if not long queue. Luckily they provided a row of seats. We ordered a large beer to go with the sushi. They have 2 color plates one with wasabi and one plate without. If we not mistaken is blue plate.... More

This place is amazing, we just wish we'd found it earlier. Kyoto doesn't have many sushi restaurants, but of the the few it does have, this is excellent. Cheap, delicious, easy... Don't hesitate!

You would never think that a Restaurant below a train station would be good and inexpensive, but this place is. Each plate of sushi (with either 2 nigiri or 4 maki pieces) was around 120yen (around 1$ when we were there), so we ended up spending around 15-20$ for both of us. And the sushi was excellent! I like sushi... More

Super fun, casual sushi in Kyoto. Went mid-afternoon and got right in. The sushi & rolls were great and the "show" was fun, sitting right at the belt. Loved it - and the Kirin to wash it down! A great value - and quality sushi (we passed on the horse, however...)

The sushi is good, not great. But with about 60€ we ate loads for two with lots of vino - can't go wrong with that!

It's a good place to eat sushi if you are in a hurry. The price is cheap and the service is fast. They accept credit card payment also, while other restaurant in Kyoto prefer to have cash payment
