First night in Tokyo and asked around what’s a good place to eat in the Shinjuku area, was recommended this place. We got there on a Friday and all Sushi was 50% off that day. While waiting for our food we spoke to the locals dining in there and they said it was their weekly spot. Food was delicious..., great hospitality, food wine and sushi made on the spot. Very authentic and fresh. Glad I was able to try them out while visiting Tokyo. This place is a must. It’s a hidden gem, on the second floor.

“Authentic Japanese Sushi”
We visited here after reading the reviews and wanted to try the local cuisine and not any tourist inspired menus. The place has a family feel to it with a nice atmosphere eating in front of the sushi chefs. It’s doesn’t have a wow factor but is just nice to experience a typical Japanese sushi meal.... I wouldn’t suggest travelling far to visit, but if you are nearby, it’s nice to try the sashimi there. We found the sushi restaurants around the fish market in Tokyo much more exciting and worth the trip there just to try.

“Traditional local sushi place”
The food is good and very affordable. The menu for tourist is very limited if you don’t know Japanese language. Hence, the lower rating cos I couldn’t order the food the locals ordered. I couldn’t point to other patrons’ food as I was the 1st batch of patrons for that day and I had no food reference... to point to. The limited sushi I ordered was fresh and good but the standard types of sushi. Service is not fantastic but I attribute it to them not being able to speak in other languages.

“Authentic Local Sushi ”
Very local restaurant with some limited English menus. If you know your sushi just point to what you want... there are also pictures! It's a family run place and the chefs take pride in their food. You'll see many office workers in there in the evening creating a bustling atmosphere. Food was deli...cious and very reasonably priced. Expect to be the only foreigners there... and if you don't like noise and a bit of smoke then this place is not for you. Overall a throughly genuine experience, and the staff are friendly if you respect their etiquette. For the best experience, sit by the bar, order some sake, enjoy the fresh sushi and soak up the atmosphere.

The service was quite poor. There were only two waitresses in the restaurant and they were dismissive of customers. It seems the restaurant caters more to Japanese patrons than foreign patrons. One of the chef's had a very dirty work station, which shows very little discipline to his craft. The sush...i was ok, not the best. A fairly disappointing meal that was not worth the bill in this great city.
