“Reasonably priced sushi in Ginza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

Walking along the ginza corridor packed with eateries, sushi midori was the only one that had a queue at least 20 people deep, all local Japanese - always a good sign. We were determined to come early the next morning and braved the light drizzle to join the queue. Even with 10 mins to opening time 11am, there were at least 20 people in the queue but we managed to get a spot at the counter in the first sitting. It was awesome seeing the chefs at work. The chefs special is always a good bet, ~ 2700yen with about 12 pieces of sushi, think 3 different types of tuna, snow crab, sea urchin, tamago, scallop, prawn, crab roe, ikura (large orange balls of fish roe), but check the walls for the specials, and don't miss the platter of aburi (charbroiled) that absolutely melt in your mouth. We paid about 5500yen for two (USD$55) for really fresh sushi, at home we would pay at least double for half the quality and freshness. We loved the atmosphere and the great service. We would absolutely come back.

“Good sushi, shorter wait”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

We chanced upon this place whilst walking from our hotel to Tsukiji Market. There a queue made up of mainly locals outside (always a good sign). The staff told us that the queue would take about 45 minutes to clear and given the anticipated wait at Sushi Dai, we decided to eat here. We were eventually seated at the counter and enjoyed the watching the chefs put our meal together.

The fish was fresh and there was a wide variety of it. There were cooked dishes on the menu too. All excellent and reasonably priced! Will definitely dine here again.

“Mediocre, at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

I will now take tripadvisor's members restaurant reviews with much salt. Midori sushi is busy because it's conveniently located and is inexpensive, not because it's good. I paid 3000 yen on Sep 12, 2013 and that included a small 1000 yen bottle of sake and 2 pieces of toro sushi at 500 yen each. I ate only sushi at the bar.
I live in SF, and we are spoiled by outstanding local produce and fish. I would rate this restaurant a 5 out of 10 for food, 3 out of 10 for atmosphere and 5 out of 10 for service.
The fish just isn't that great. The English menu doesn't include any of their cooked dishes - you have to look around the walls at color, laminated copies of the food with prices on it - so tacky.
They are so busy they don't really care about delivering napkins, plates or refilling water.
You get what you pay for and this place reconfirms the adage.

“Fabulous sushi in Ginza...:)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

I like this place...It's bigger than shibuya branch. And also, I and my family were so impressive with their service even they couldn't speak English. They served us attentively with great Japanese's manner. That's why I saw many Japanese people in the Ginza branch. For the person who would like to enjoy not only the food, but also real Japanese's culture, I'm strongly suggest to go to this branch.

“Fresh & Reasonably Priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

Grabbed a quick late lunch (went at lunch time the day before, line was too long) and had wonderfully fresh Tuna and Yellowtail sushi. Good size portions. Didn't try anything else (e.g. soup) as really just wanted to satisfy a sushi craving.
