Good, cheap and fast service

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

It's been my second visit to Musashi since August '14 and nothing has changed - the same great quality sushi, same long-ish queue to get it. One change since then is I think a change in pricing of sushi - IIRC some dishes were colour-coded last year to indicate different price bracket but they got rid of it and now... More

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!

A good friend recommended this restaurant and we were amazed. It is a typical sushi restaurant where plates pass in front of you. They have a very wide selection, all of the plates we had were very fresh. Price is great! We ended up paying about 20USD for a great dinner for two (including two beers)

Very centrally located sushi train that was great fun for the family. Clearly it was our first experience of the sushi train which was a highlight but the sushi freshness and quality was very good. Love how it was made right in front of you. Each plate was 130 yen which was economical.

I go here at least once a week. Pros: The sushi is kaiten (conveyor belt) they have an English menu (if needed, but they give it to anyone who looks foreign) Get your own water -no need to wait for them to come by and fill your 4 oz. glass (water at meals is not normal in Japan), just get... More

I go there with my wife probably once per week - we live super close by. In talking with many other Kyoto locals (Japanese as well as foreign residents), this is consistently considered the best value and one of the best tasting Kaitenzushi (conveyer belt sushi) in all of Kyoto. Fish is fresh, service is top notch and even if... More
