Me and my Girlfriend went to Japan in January 2020 and i wanted to have a really good sushi experience for this trip and i was blown away by how good this place was! The staff were very welcoming and also explained each piece to...us in english as they were made(my favourites were the Chu-toro, Hamachi, and Uni). I would definitely recommend this place to any person coming to Tokyo and wants a really good sushi experience! I will definitely come back next year!More

Visited Makoto Sushi in Nishi-Shinjuku for dinner in January 2020. Makoto Sushi has a few locations in Tokyo. This Shinjuku one we tried was amazing! The chef has been at this location for last 4 years. Wait staff were very friendly and service was prompt....We chose Omakase, 8,000 yen/ person course. Appetizers came quickly and we moved on to sushi. Every was very tasty. One of, if not, the best sushi dinning experience I’ve ever had. Highly recommend.More

Selected the 80,000¥ Omakase dinner. The counter crowd was lively and friendly, sharing sake and doing toasts. A close to 2 hour event. The seasonal sake was a great surprise, smooth and slightly sweet. Chef did an awesome job. Would definitely repeat.

My friend and I had an incredible experience here. We did the nigiri omakase and our chef was both highly skilled and very pleasant company—she was accommodating in speaking English and reported that she actually spent a couple of years living in upstate New York....We were delighted! Highly recommend visiting this place.More

Just down from McDonalds you could miss this one but don’t. The staff are lovely and we had an excellent chef’s selection of Japanese dishes. You’ll need to book this one. Several prospects were turned away. Book early to avoid disappointment.

We visited Tokyo for the first time in April (Sakura Season!) and were staying at one of the major hotels in the Shinjuku area. We stumbled upon this tiny restaurant in a quiet street almost secretly tucked away when we were just wandering around for...dinner. The staff makes sure their diners have a pleasant experience, so we were greeted outside when we inquired about availability. They were unsurprisingly booked that night and the wait staff was apologetic but took it upon themselves to coordinate a reservation for a later date with great patience while we were still in town, which ended up being our last night in Tokyo. We returned for our reservation and they remembered us immediately. They seated us at the counter and we opted for the Chef's Special Course (9-course fixed menu) and picked out two sakes to complement. We had the opportunity to interact with the chef who helped to prepare many of our courses. The menu is different from what most Americans are used to in that it's not strictly sushi; there will be courses that will come out from the kitchen and not contain raw fish. Everyone was friendly in a genuine manner. I accidentally dropped my coat at one point, but it fell into a corner and I figured it'd be too much of a hassle to retrieve. Somehow, the wait staff noticed and managed to return it to the back of my seat without interrupting the dining experience. GENUINE. It's hard to come by being a tourist in a new city and you struggle to speak the language. The the wait and kitchen staff aren't overbearing, but rather encouraging and speak enough English to help you through the meal. They make sure you're well taken care of and don't rush you. They're patient, easygoing, and will embrace you in all your awkward tourist glory. We were humbled by their graciousness. Thank you so much どうもありがとうございます Shinjuku Makoto for the perfect dinner during our last night in Tokyo. We hope to see you again when we return to Japan!More

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Arrived at approx. 1830hrs without a booking and was able to get in. Only one couple were tourists, rest were locals. Good service, delicious food and good quality. We got the 8000 yen menu and it was a lot of food...for us. We do recommend this place to others!More

I'm so sorry I can't remember exactly - I think it was around £50 per person for the whole tasting menu excluding drinks
