“Sushi were delicious - a must in Tokyo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

We found this place on Tripadvisor and we glad we decided to give it a try. The fish is very fresh, which makes the dishes (sushi and rolls) just wonderful. The cooks work in front of the guests - efficient, concentrated and polite. We ate much more than we had initially planned - simply couldn't help but continue to enjoy high-quality products.
They don't accept bookings, so there is always a line, but it moves quickly and worth waiting a bit.

“Excellent, good value but queing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

After five years and a 6 year expatriation period in Tokyo, we came back to Tokyo for holiday and visiting our friends.
During our stay we went twice to our Midori sushi, near Ginza. Sushis are excellent (at least for a non-Japanese) and not too expensive. We also ate twice in Zanmai sushi in Ginza, but we found it quality now clearly behind Midori which has only one issue: queing is sometimes long (1 hour for our second visit!)

“Loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

During our 8 nights in Tokyo, we actually ate here 3 times ..it was that good! We never had to wait, always sat at the counter where we could watch the chefs in action. And we could point to what we want. Tried all kinds of sushi and sashimi - incrediby fresh! And at half the price we would pay at home in Amsterdam. It's also easy to find, top floor of the Akasaka Biz Tower. Friendly, fun and fabulous food.

“Must try!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

I eat a lot of sushi. I ate a few sushi meals in Japan on my recent trip that were disappointing. Sushi no Midori was the exact opposite! The sushi is excellent...I enjoyed every piece of it. And not expensive at all considering sushi prices in Tokyo. For $45, I got a toro platter (that included o-toro), multiple pieces of salmon including fatty salmon, uni, scallop, and a few others. That's a ridiculously good price for all of that. I went to this place my last evening in Tokyo. Wish I would have found it sooner because I would have returned multiple times.
