“Fresh sushi ”
Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

Fresh sushi with much shorter line than Sushi Dai. Menu was preset but we ordered more from the chef! Staff was super friendly.

“Wish I Went Elsewhere”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

We waited in a long line to get in here and the sushi definitely was not worth the wait. Though the fish was incredibly fresh, as is expected in the market area, the quality proved to be meh. The sushi chef really pushed the set (3500 Yen) and then dished it up fast-food style, dropping each piece hard enough in front of me to scatter the rice beneath the fish. Very unappetizing and a total failure for presentation.

This is a very small place so it appears that the goal is a rapid turnover of customers for the bottom line rather than providing a good sushi experience. When I was there, all the customers seemed to be tourists so perhaps the attitude is that no one will return regardless of service and sushi quality.

Certainly the man outside controlling the line could have cared less about clientele. He actually gave me a hard shove to get me into the place in line, where he wanted me to be. A simple gesture would have sufficed.

“Good not great”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

I was expecting a lot regarding the freshness and fish quality and got a bit disapointed. The place is packed and you dont get the treatment you would get at 廣金 - Hirokane in Shibuya for instance in the same range of price;

“Sushi is fine”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

The services are fine, and the atmosphere here is good. The waiting time is too long for me, I would prefer to other sushi restaurant if I know wait too long time. The sushi is fresh , but not the top quality of sushi.

“Freshest sushi I've tasted”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We were served by the friendly and cheerful sushi master. The sushi is the freshest I have tasted so far. It is best to choose a set from the menu and the stream of sushi will be served according to your eating speed. Definitely worth the 30min wait outside. It is very tight once you get inside. If you bring larger bags, you might not be allowed to go in.
