Ate here around 9pm on a Friday night in early December 2019. About a 15-minute wait to get a seat at the bar upstairs. Our chef was pleasant, patient, helpful, and spoke functional English. My wife and I each got a maguro set, a couple...of pieces of salmon nigiri to share, and some beer and sake. Excellent, excellent meal. Salmon is typically my go-to, but in this case the maguro was the best sushi I've ever tasted, period. Bill for my wife and myself was just under $100USD and worth every penny. Good atmosphere, generous portion sizes, and easy to watch the chefs at work. I'll most definitely be back here the next time I'm in Japan.More

This multi-leveled restaurant is busy, bustling and frenetic. Wait staff is always on the move. It is an iconic restaurant located a block or so from the old fish market. Be sure to visit the old fish market too .... there are still an good...number of vendors. The owner is a larger than life figure who is a real showman. Sushi and sashimi are the best, freshest and very reasonably priced. Gorge yourself because you will not beat the price/quality ratio anywhere else. Do not leave without trying the tuna sampler ..... The wait will be worth it.More

Went here for second time after being here in 2016. Great sashimi churashi bowl and very animated staff with lots of yelling on Japanese from the chefs. Fantastic sashimi churashi bowl with interesting conger eel (aka fluffy eel). All delicious!

A typical Japanese sushi restaurant where you are lucky if you can get seats at the counter; very popular! The sushi is great, fresh and at the right temperature; it is a simple as that. For the first time I saw staff taking fish out...of the water tankMore

One of the genuine Japanese restaurants, favorite with locals. Great atmosphere and superior quality sushi, sashimi and all types of miso soup. Variety of beer and sake completes the experience.

The quality of the fish is not bad, but it's nothing special either. We just had average sushi, not a lot of taste on it, and quite expensive for what we got. Having so many sushi options in Kyoto I would never go back there....However, if that is you only option (because it's open 24 hrs I think) it's not bad. Tempura is not worth it.More

A friend of mine told me: "this is the first restaurant I visit every time I am in Tokyo". After I tried it, I understood why. The location is cool (in Tsukiji, the location of the old and iconic fish market of Tokyo) and the...food is fabulous. The best dish, in my opinion is the Magurozanmai Special: different types of delicious tuna. You can only eat the real fatty tuna in Tokyo: afterwards, every tuna you eat won't taste the same. I strongly suggest also the chirashi. If you are in Tokyo and decide not to try Sushizanmai, you will loose a chance to try something special.More

I visit this restaurant every year when I visit Japan, and have been doing so for 7 years. Of the three main types of tuna, I prefer the medium fatty tuna over the red tuna and then the fatty tuna. I recommend both the medium...fatty tuna and the albacore tuna. They both seem to melt in your mouth. The place is always clean and the staff is very friendly and attentive. I only speak English and have had no problems communicating.More

Another restaurant we visited, entirely relying on TA recommendations, and we were not disappointed. We had to wait for about 30 minutes to be seated. There is a sign-in sheet at the entrance. The Sushi selections were delicious (maybe except for the octopus which we...didn’t like) great miso soups and deep fried pufferfish. The best sushi we ever had in Japan (in all fairness, it was our first sushi but I wouldn’t know how it could be any better elsewhere). Friendly and efficient service.More

There are a few Sushizanmai’s in the area with 1 being the most popular, so choose wisely. You’ll easily see the popular restaurant by the queue, so be prepared to queue for around 40-50 minutes. Having said that, this is arguably the best sushi in...Tokyo. The restaurant is very clean, offers complimentary green tea (this is the best green tea we’ve had in Japan) and water, the sushi is made in front of you, the fish is SUPER fresh and you get great service with smiles all around the restaurant. We had quite a bit to eat, and for 2 people, our bill was ¥4300. We’ve seen people eating in for ¥2000 so that’s also possible. A definite must try!More

Been to Tokyo and Kyoto many, many, many times and this place just gets better and better. So fresh, great service, great value. Absolutely fresh, delicious, fun, inexpensive. We have sent many friends there and everyone has the same experience at each of their locations....The best for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Love this place.More

I ate the best sushi at this great sushi restaurant. The tuna was amazing and so was the salmon. The place at Tsukiji Market is packed, but it is worth standing in line for. The sushi makers speak a little English, but there are English...menus so it's easy to point at what you want. I went twice because I like the restaurant so much. Good price/quality. Definitely worth going here!More
