Favorite lunch spot

I always get the lightly grilled salmon lunch special when I come here. It comes with tasty miso soup and salad to start, and the entree itself is beautifully laid with several more edible items. Always fresh! Definitely worth the price. All under $14!

From the Spicy Lobster Miso Soup to the Wasabi Maki, all of the choices at Daikanyama are great. Recently remodled, the restaurant is now much quieter than before. The staff is friendly and attentive; my water glass and mug of green tea never go empty. Even the House Salad with diced red peppars, asparagus tips and ginger dressing is delicious.... More

We have gone here a few times now and every time we walk away happy! The sushi is so fresh and delicious and I love how they have some unique sushi options that you don't see anywhere else. You can order off an iPad which has beautiful pictures of the sushi on it so you know exactly what you are... More

Pleasantly surprised with the meal here. They have a very large specials menu with extremely creative sushi and everything is presented beautifully. The specials are presented on a tablet and you can scroll through and see the pictures which is a nice touch. The atmosphere is relaxing and the staff was friendly and apologized for being slow although it really... More

Our large party was handled gracefully on a busy night. The room is small but modern and clean. Our waitress was helpful and efficient. The food was fresh and presented with artful care. A very good experience and will be back.

So many choices, so little time, and such beautiful presentation. The dining room, itself, is beautiful, particularly at night. Soft light, soothing colors, little noise. The menu features a dazzling array of nigiri, maki, sashimi, and "sushi as art" creations, supplemented by (the evening we were there) 56 additional specials offered on a hand-held tablet (which, we discovered after playing...

We went for lunch last week and will definitely be returning soon! With only 2 people eating it was impossible to try as many of the interesting menu options as we would have liked, but everything we had was delicious. Our favorites were the Cherry Blossom roll - salmon, avocado, tempura crumbs and tuna - and the Unagi Sandwich -... More

We like this place as a family for a good dependable sushi. We have been there multiple times over the last couple of months for lunch and had a very good experience every time. Their lunch combos are very good and filling.
