Very friendly, warm, and welcoming. We don't speak japanese, but they were helpful, accommodating and anticipated what we might want or not want (ie they asked if my girlfriend would wasabi. I would think that would be a default ingredient, so it was very nice of them to check and make sure. Sure enough, my girlfriend doesn't like wasabi). I... More

We came to this restaurant because of reviews and were very disappointed. Clearly these reviewers have never eaten half decent sushi. Very average. Enough said ...

We went twice and had the menu of ¥ 900 and concluded that this is a very good price for a plate of 12 very fresh and tasty sushi. Service is very friendly and you get thea and a delicious fishsoup to it for this price. I tasted the three kinds of cold sake for ¥ 680 and was not... More

After reading all the stellar reviews concerning the quality of their food and their warm service, I can't help but feel somewhat shortchanged with my outing there. Sushi was quite average though I suppose decent value for the YEN900 set which I ordered. Also, felt that the service was somewhat cold after the staff found out that I don't speak... More

Average sushi. We had a nice time. The rice was a bit blend and a lot of fish had already sold out at 8pm, so there wasn't a lot of variety. Nevertheless I had shotoro and Otoro and they didn't taste as good as on other places. Overall I don't think this place is amongst the best in shinjuku. But... More

Sushi trains is already a sign of average but by tasting you'll find this even worse although we directly ordered to the chefs. I have never tried such below average sushis in my 10 times travel to Japan... To avoid. For instance the rice was not at the right temperature (still too warm) and didn't feel the little taste of...

We enjoyed our visit to Himawari Zushi so much we went back for a second night. Along with the great selection on the conveyor belt, an English menu is available. If you are nervous about how to politely call your order to the chefs, one of the servers will do it for you. This restaurant had the best service in... More

We came on a weekday and had no reservation, they kindly found a place for us to seat. It's a squared bar where you have a sushi train and you can choose a plate and pay by it's color (ranged from 100 to 500 yen) or you can order sushi from one of the great waiters that are there all... More
