Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Reviewed 3 February 2022 via mobile

Some of the best yellow fin tuna sushi and sashimi I’ve ever had. There can be a wait so you might want to make a reservation. Very limited English speaking but still able to communicate. All the tuna dishes were excellent. A new favorite in...the Akasaka district of Tokyo.More

The sushi here was very good, quality with fresh fish. The prices weren't that high for said quality either, so the value is high at this restaurant. The atmosphere was also very nice, quite quiet and quick service. Would recommend this sushi restaurant.More

Quite possibly the best sushi I've had in Japan. Best nigiri that I've had in Japan, amazing sashimi and the uni was definitely the best that I have had in my life. The uni had a perfect soft texture and mild fresh flavour. The citrus...wine was excellent as well and I would highly recommend it. Good value for quality.More

I read many review, it seem good enough sushi at a reasonable price. When we get there service was good. They speak enough english. But the quality of Chutoro and Otoro are bad. I dont want anyone to learn what the taste of Chutoro and...Otoro by eating here. The freshness is not good. The temperature serve are not correct. I read another review they face to same problem they served Otoro frozened. And the price are not cheap at all. Not crazy price but expensive. I think even back in thailand we get better quality and price for Sushi. Will not be back.More

We saw good reviews on this restaurant so decided to give it a try. After a week staying in Japan, everything is so wonderful, people are extremely nice, respectful, nothing to complain until now. The service of this restaurant is terrible. After waiting for more...than 30 minutes, almost all the guess in the restaurant have left, no cleaning, of any tables so they can take in more customers. Ridiculous!!!!More

First thing if you come here , you should love sushi, raw fish, sashimi. Others menu are ok but they are not highlights here. I found Tuna is the most yummy as it is advertised. You also need to be able to have wasabi because...it is inside the rice as traditional way too. You can search this place & book via link under google map .

We heard of it so we paid it a visit. Without reservation (as always) we had to wait a while. The atmosphere is a little tensioned but the only negative in the place . They offer a very big variety on sushi, mostly however with...tuna. Very fresh and very good made, with combinations that we tried for the very first time. Prices are very good. So I think it should be visited from every sushi lover!More

This restaurant offered lunch set menu in addition to the main a la carte. It's available in English, Chinese and Korean. Staff did not have any fluency in spoken English. They didn't know what was wrong with the free WiFi connection. However, they were friendly...and attentive. We could order our food items without any difficulty. As for the food quality, it was much higher than those available in the Tsukiji Fish Market restaurants. They were flavorful and tasty. For lunch combo, free salad and miso soup were offered. The price set was reasonable. Quite value for the money spent.More

This sushi restaurant is in the heart of the Akasuka-Mitsuke district in Tokyo. The location is a few tens of metres South of Akasaka-Mitsuke JR Subway Station (on the Ginza & Marunouchi Lines) and the place is very good indeed. High-quality, super-fresh Bluefin Tuna is...prepared as if by magic, right in front of you, by skilled chefs. The result is both delicious and filling. The chefs are friendly and confidently shout greetings to all diners who enter. Booking is recommended and I strongly suggest asking for a place at the serving bar right in front of the kitchen, where you give your order directly to the chef's.More
