“Favorite restaurant in Tokyo”
Specializes in grilled dried fish. Friendly staff, limited English but very accommodating. So many great dishes. Lunch set menus are super cheap and delicious. We go back every time we are in Tokyo, multiple times!

“If you are going to Sushi Zanmai, go to Tsukiji and not anywhere else”
I often frequent Sushi Zanmai in Tsukiji. There are several Sushi Zanmai store there. All have good quality sushi at reasonable price. You can't really go too wrong at Sushi Zanmai in Tsukiji. However, at other locations such as Shibuya, the quality lacks significantly. Perhaps it is catered ...to a different crowd but it simply is not as good. The service I experienced was very slow. The fish was OK in my opinion. The sea urchin in the case looked horrible to the point of very dark brown. The chef was making sushi while writing things on a paper with a pen ( constantly for the tabs) and I didn't see him wash his hands once. So that, made me uncomfortable as well. All in all, for the quality, and other reasons, I recommend going to Tsukiji if you want real good sushi.
