Sometimes, saying little is just what is needed. You should experience yourselves, especially at lunch where it is cheaper. Book in advance. Especially liked the use of lime & garlic. And the master could speak a bit english too! Mmmmm!

We decided to go to Kyubey because of the great reviews and we were not disappointed. We had the 16 pieces set menu and it was wonderful. The fish is extremely fresh. Even the tiger prawn was alive. We had to ask for directions to find it. It's very hard to find because the name is in Japanese. We will... More

After 20 years I just realized that tonight was my first real sushi meal... A great experience, great taste, lovely service and Chef Go was amazing guiding us in this... More

Kyubey was recommended by our Japanese guide. Note: It's a little tricky to find the place, as it's pretty inconspicuous, but the moment you walk in and hear the welcoming cheers from the waitresses and chefs, you know you're in for a treat! Go for the set menu. The entire experience from start to finish is well worth the price.... More

Kyubey is really worth making the effort to get a reservation a long time in advance. It was the best sushi I ever had, and I have lived in japan for five years now, so I have tried my share of sushi places ;) actually not that expensive considering the quality.

Kyubey was recommended to us by some friends who had been there a few years prior. Definitely recommend making a reservation in advance (your hotel can do this). Having a chef's tasting menu is the only way to do it here. They have a 12 and 16 course menu. We chose the 16 course although would have been fine with... More

I enjoy the experience. It's Old School, reliable, very high quality, great care taken to ensure a grand evening. They have received press that indicates Entertainment Industry-Types used to go there (Spielberg, Katzenberg, etc.) which is not a plus for me - I tend to recoil from that type of pandering publicity (the owner gives me reprints of the new...

This is a very good sushi restaurant. It has quite a few Michelin stars but I don't remember how many. As indicated above, it is very good - but just short of great. I remember having a very good time there and that the sushi was very good. I just don't remember anything particularly great or memorable about the meal.... More

We chose this restaurant because of its location near to our hotel, and also because it ranked very high in the list of best restaurants in Tokyo on trip adviser. It is only later that we realised that this is actually a 1 Michelin Star restaurant renowned in the whole of Japan for its great sushi. Service is done by... More
