“Sushi in a friendly restaurant!”
Sushi in a friendly restaurant! Sure there were communication challenges. My Japanese is limited, try everlasting phrases, and the wait staff did a fine job of serving us. It took several requests to get a beer. Did not matter, we were still enjoying the sushi. Overall, very good, we have had sushi ...four times in the last week at a variety of restaurants, and this was among the best.

“Food might not be worth the wait”
I don't know if it was because it was a Sunday, but we arrived in front of Tamazushi at around 1:50 and had to wait to be seated for a longgg time even though there were so many seats open in the store. The wait was so long that everyone at the packed restaurant across from Tamazushi had finished th...eir entire meals before we even got seated. The only times they actually actively came out to look at the list and seat people was when people complained. The staff also seemed relatively unfriendly and unhappy to be there. The sushi itself was really good, but I don't know if it was just because I was starving or if the quality was actually good. I would recommend the place if there's not really a line, but if there's more than 4 people in front of you and you're hungry, maybe consider going somewhere else.

Only my second fish sushi experience, so can't say I know what im looking for, but this place seemed ok. Decent enough fish, cheap, and busy, which is always a good sign. Speciality seems to be all you can eat though, so not sure it's as good as you can get if you only want a few pieces. I had bette...r last time (in Kyoto).

“Poor quality, tasteless sushi.”
Lived in Tokyo for 5 years and used to bring friends here for the all you can eat. It;s been 3 years since we've been back there and the experience and quality of the food was horrendous. Even though I speak a little japanese it was difficult because the rude sushi chef would only communicate via ...the order sheets that they now give you along with a pen to fill out with your choices, a foreigner would have problems ordering because the order form is ALL in Japanese. The fish was of poor quality, the nori deteriorates because you have to order several pieces at a time vs ordering and eating at a leisurely pace. The sushi chef kept leaving out things we had selected on our sheets and would tell us that we hadn't put it down. Have had way better conveyor belt and grocery store sushi. This place is a rip off of poor quality; it used to be so good. Don't waste your yen. Just because it's in the Ginza doesn't mean it's good. Oh, after the sushi chef sneezed twice into the air without covering his mouth, it was time to cut our losses and leave.

“First-rate [Reasonably Priced] Sushi”
Experienced Tsukiji Tamasushi on the recommendation of our local tour guide and were not disappointed to state the least. The sushi was all minimally very good with some like the Toro [fatty tuna] and grilled Isobe Scallops bridging on the exceptional! It is truly not a tourist destination, so Eng...lish and ordering is somewhat on the more complicated side, but pictures do assist in the process and all in all we had no trouble in ordering exactly what we wanted to eat. With that said, a number of the servers steered clear of us in fear of having to communicate slowing our service dramatically. With that said, a delicious very reasonably priced [sushi based] meal was enjoyed by all worthy of many a return visit. The only real negative to said establishment is the permissibility of smoking within.
