Kyubei is an absolute most when you are in Tokyo. This was my second visit and it was fantastic again. The owner is great; he interacts with customers and he explains how to properly eat the sushi but in a intimidating way. The sushi was out of this world. This restaurant is world famous and it exceeds its reputation.

I had the medium (not the most expensive) set dinner and 3 beers and it came to US$230 just for me. It was great as a rare experience but definitely not everyday dining ! The waitress told me that the restaurant was founded 82 years ago (before 2016).

The food and service here were just excellent. We were a little apprehensive as we felt like the only non-Japanese customers in the restaurant however we were immediately made welcome and the staff could not have been more helpful. We chose a set menu of sashimi, nigiri, grilled fish and miso soup and just left the rest to our brilliant... More

I know this may not be the most subtle of titles but there is a sense of mystique about Jiro that maybe well deserved but for $300 and 20 mins of eating with rules that are longer than your average school entry criteria I would suggest you opt for Kyubey Ginza. Now don't get me wrong the prices for the... More

Go for lunch and sit at the counter. Been there twice and the omakase set has never disappointed me. Hands down the best sushi I have ever eaten and having lived in Japan for five years and visiting 2 to 3 times a year since then, it;s always about the food.

The food and service were excellent. I was a little nervous knowing very little Japanese and not an expert in sushi. The chef and staff really made this a great experience. He explained what each item was and how to eat it. We sat at the counter, and it was amazing to watch him work. The sushi was incredible.

If you are alone, ask for a sit at the counter. This is not just for the food, which is great, but I spent my time watching the art of preparing sushi and for an hour chatting with the chef about his secrets. This is a culture that you can breath clearly in this place. This is definitively a place... More

Great sushi and experience. Fresh and delicious sushi. Staff made it - our chef, Go, was friendly, explained everything and had time for all questions. Nice touch from the owner who came out and talked to everyone and gave a little demo. Well worth it.

Celebrity chef tick, very good sushi tick, great location tick, excellent service tick. Its hard to come to Tokyo as a visitor and not go to one of the most well known and long standing world class sushi restaurants without very high expectations about everything. Look you certainly can't fault the place. My question is whether at these prices you... More
