“Three Michelin stars - but experience fairly clinical!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Had the 20 courses meal for 30 thousend yen. Really superb sushi prepared in a RUSH for you. In and out in 25 minutes !! Food is probably worth the 3 stars, but as an experience, I would not do it again. Book well in advance they say..although I was the only customer for lunch on a Monday in March.

Modest location makes the fabulous food a pleasant surprise. Very great fusion food and deserts that you won't forget.

“Best sushi ever for me”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Be prepared for anything but the best. The place is cosy and offers a special sushi experience! You will most likely be seated in the bar seeing the fish being prepared.

“Stellar sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Had to make the reservation (lunch) 1 month in advance plus prepay 20,000 yen (10,000 per person) deposit so expectations were very high, especially since the restaurant wasn't full when we got there. But we were not disappointed. The set menu includes 20 pieces of sushi and a slice of musk melon for dessert. Each piece is prepared and placed one at a time in front of you. We were advised to eat immediately in order to savour the taste of the fish at its optimum flavour. The rice has slightly more vinegar, a Jiro signature. We were in and out of there within 45 minutes. Was it worth it? Yes! For serious sushi fans, this is a truly memorable experience.
