Had a lunch Omakase sushi course (¥3000). Good and reasonable priced Edo-style sushi with few side dishes. Every sushi is crafted and seasoned with Edo-style, so you don’t need to add any soy sauce. Some of them have a bit creative touch so I felt...chef’s challenging sprit for traditional sushi.More

Decided to try their omakase lunch during my time in Tokyo. no regrets, it was great value for money! We were seated separately, at a private table which was nice too!

Amazing place! Great value for money. Came out with full and satisfied taste buds and bellies :) definitely swing by if you’re looking for a good omakase experience.

Great, but be open-minded, and forewarned... the Omakase course for 6,000 yen (absolutely make a reservation) has about 30 different courses, of which (on the day I went in early January) had only 11 pieces of what you might consider ‘sushi’ in the traditional sense...(slices of raw fish or raw seafood on rice). The rest of the courses are a delightful variety of slices of marinated raw fish, braised seafood like abalone, various picked vegetables, and some shockingly ‘exotic’ eats. All of it very good, but the progression will be shocking to some. For example, after your first piece of particularly tasty cod sushi, you get a small bowl of particularly slimy seaweed (VERY very slimy and potentially off-putting if you have never tried it before ), delicately flavored with a citrus sauce. It’s delicious, but I bet many people wouldn’t try a second bite because of the texture. Or later, you get two wonderful pieces of fatty tuna sushi, and then a small bowl with a pile of something that looks like (I’ll just say it) white brains- or maybe intestines. Raw brains and intestines floating in some soy based sauce. Of course it’s not brains or intestines, but actually (and I’m not sure it sounds better), the raw reproductive sacks of codfish. It has a creamy texture (some of you are getting sick, I know it). But for those with an open mind, it is a delicacy when prepared correctly, and it’s very, very delicious here. So by all means try this place- you will get a wonderful overview of not just great sushi, but also very skillfully prepared Japanese cuisine at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.More

We were fortunate to get a spot at the bar for two by calling in the morning. Not only was the food outstanding but watching the friendly chef prepare in front of us and interact with us was amazing. We counted 28 dishes! All were...delicious even if some challenged us outside of our comfort zone! The fish was so fresh and melts in your mouth. The cost for dinner is 60,000 yen which is amazing value! Wow! Highly recommend!More

Another gem of a sushi restaurant in Ginza. Reservations is needed or else there is a queue to go in. A small restaurant with a sushi bar and few small tables in the side. Had reserved their Omakase menu and it was good, tasty and...at a price most acceptable. The toro was melting in your mouth. The food just keep on coming and it was very satisfying when it’s all over. Service was quick and good too.More

I always wanted to try omakase in general, and I'm happy my first time was in Japan. I did not want to blow my budget on it and after research found this place that offered it for 60pp, which I read is very reasonable, so...I decided to do it. It's pretty difficult to get a reservation here so I advise having your hotel help, or go there in person and make the reservation in advance. I went earlier on the day off on Tuesday in person and was luckily able to get a reservation for the 9pm. This place is real cool and I like the layout, it's tight but comfortable. The main chef was real nice and helped explained what all the plates where, and how to eat certain plates as well, it made the experience great. Also want to say the busboys where awesome also, very hard working and attentive, we had a little error on the night I was there but they corrected it right away. The food itself was awesome as well, I especially liked the tuna slices and fatty tuna, so good here. I feel I got enough food here and you'll feel satisfied at the end. For 60pp, I don't think you can go wrong if you want to have this experience.More

I'm not sure what the negative reviews are talking about, but cost and quality of the dishes/fishes at Manten are comparable to much more expensive omakase experiences. Every piece of fish was of superior quality and I especially loved the chawanmushi in a savory, citrusy...sauce. The abalone was delectable. The amount of uni topping a rice roll and wrapped in nori was so abundant I could barely wrap my hand around it. 25 courses later, I was stuffed and all for a mere $60 USD. We made our reservation about 5 weeks earlier (although I've heard it can be done as late as a few days beforehand) and can be done online. With the help of Google Translate, I was able to navigate the website and reservation page relatively easily. You will receive a confirmation email immediately after booking and will also receive multiple reminder emails in the couple days leading up to your reserved date. Google Maps will lead you to a shopping complex. The restaurant is located on level B1 (take the escalator down to the basement level, also the location of many other restaurants). Off the escalator, enter through the main doors and Manten is located just ahead of you. Amazing value for a wonderful meal.More

The spouse came here first when he went to Tokyo on a business trip and said we had eat here. I was not disappointed. Very delicious omakase for a very very good price. Everything came very quickly and there were many many pieces (maybe around...20? I lost count). The restaurant is not very spacious so it might not be suitable for families with small children (we went with our one year old and I carried her in the Ergo the whole time). Best to make reservations for dinner.More

This place seems to be on a lot of "fantastic mid range sushi places" in Tokyo with a lot of comments wondering in disbelief at how they can operate this cheaply...it's better than a good Kaiten (conveyor belt) sushi place but not by much...of the...sushi on offer, there were a couple solid nigiri and everything else was ok but nothing special...I think this is maybe a good option for people on a budget or who want an omokase experience without spending 20,000+ yen. It's fine, I guess. 3/5More
