We stumbled upon Wasabi and were lucky to get a seat. Next night no such luck third nIght reservations for sure. The sashimi and sushi are excellent as well as the service. Do call ahead. One of our best meals in Japan.

A busy place, even on a Tuesday in March. Locals go there. Trendy.
I ordered the set menu of sushi plus tempura (8 pieces of each, comes with miso soup), at 3 600 yen. Then I had a tuna roll, a piece of garden onion sushi, and a piece of flat fish sushi. My drinks were shochu Tomino Houzan (sweet potato, this particular brand was the most expansive one on the drink list) and plum wine Nigori Umesyu. There is a cover fee of about 500 yen.
Total bill: 6 800 yen.
Everything was very good. I had a great meal.
Drinks were excellent, especially the plum wine, that I will try to buy to bring back home.
Very professional, friendly, extremely polite staff. An example of good restaurant service.
The place is so busy that they requested that at leave at 7:30, because they were fully booked at that time. Too bad, I would have liked to take advantage of my corner at the counter to write longer ( I find it difficult to write at the place I am renting, because of low table in tatami room, I am not used to it). But they were monitoring the time I was spending in the restaurant, in order to honour other engagements they were having for later that evening. This is a busy place.
