This is a small sushi restaurant in the Roppongi Hills area run by the son of the famed Sushi Jiro master.
It's obvious to all that the son is just like his dad. An unparalleled master at his art. It is true that you are highly unlikely to ever eat as fine or as tasty sushi ever again.
It's definitely worth coming here and tasting the best sushi that exists on the planet.
The meal cost 30,000 yen! This is understandable in view of this man's fame and skill. However when you consider that Sushi Midori (http://www.sushinomidori.co.jp) will serve you a perfectly tasty sushi lunch set (which includes very expensive Chu Toro and the fattiest O Toro) for 2,600 yen (ie. less than 1/10th the price) of eating here. You've got to ask yourself: is it worth it?
Although the food is without equal, the general eating experience is quite stressful. We came as a group and I found the atmosphere nerve-wracking. It was difficult to have a nice simple and relaxing conversation as it seemed to me that we were expected to behave like awe-struck fans watching the great master at work. And sit there slaves to his greatness. I have never had a more unenjoyable or unrelaxing dinner in my life. And to make things worse, this was costing us 30,000 yen for 60 minutes of chef-worship!
To make things worse, the chef STRONGLY encourages you to eat your sushi in one gulp. I take your point that it is probably the best way to enjoy the sublime and exquisite art of his sushi. But for 30,000 yen! For a 60 minute experience, I would really prefer to stretch and savour the experience by eating my sushi in TWO bites instead of one please. Is it really THAT CRIMINAL to eat sushi in TWO bites?
In summary. Sukiyabashi Jiro and the original Sushi Jiro probably offer the BEST sushi on the earth. But at 30,000 yen, with a stressful and foreboding atmosphere. A multi-month waiting list. And this extreme insistence of only eating sushi in ONE bite, I strongly urge you to reconsider your choice of eating here.
If you are fantastically wealthy, feel free to eat here. But if you are of more humble means, take your business elsewhere. You'll get better value for money. And you'll have a much more enjoyable evening.
To conclude. I'm glad I went. But I will never come back.
I would much prefer to go to Sushi Midori (http://www.sushinomidori.co.jp/) and pay 2,600 yen for a perfectly good set menu lunch!
