This restaurant has the ambience of one you would find anywhere in Tokyo – small and slightly below street level, understated but elegant décor of simple but well finished light wood furniture, professional, courteous but not overly exuberant service. We had an assortment of dishes, including some not regularly found elsewhere -natto maki, and chawanmushi (egg custard), two of my favorites. The one impression you’ll come away with is that here everything’s prepared just the way it should be down to the smallest detail, the sushi rice was nice and soft but not stuck together, tempura batter was light and fluffy (you also get the pile of shaved daikon for the sauce which seems to be omitted by many restaurants), so was the batter for the age tofu (it stays on when you pick up the piece), expertly grilled salmon, dainty seaweed salad. To top off we had grilled banana with green tea ice cream. It’s not cheap but the food quality was well worth the price. An excellent place to go for authentic Japanese food.

Went with a 'foodie' friend who lives in NYC. The fish was super fresh and the presentation impeccable. Not usually a fan of desserts, but the grilled banana with black sesame ice cream was absolutely delicious.

Very good spot, but Kanoyama (around the corner) serves better sushi at the same price point.

I had the "twilight" dinner served between 5-6.30pm which is excellent value. There is a choice of sushi or sashimi and it comes with miso soup and a salad and a selection of other things including salmon and tempura shrimp and tempura vegetables. The space is cosy and popular with Asians and the service is fast and pleasant. They do not accept reservations.
