“Quality Sushi at a highly convenient location”
I stumbled upon this restaurant and had planned just to get a couple of pieces as a quick bite. I was so surprised by the extent of the menu and the fact that many locals ate at this restaurant. The pricing was also not exorbitant given the quality of the fish! I recommend this to anyone who may wan...t a sushi restaurant that is accessible (they have english menus), centrally located and open most of the day.

“Underhanded and sneaky!”
Currently on holiday in Tokyo ( which we're LOVING! ) and visited this place for dinner. Looked clean and had a decent enough menu so we decided we'd eat here. No problem with ordering which is done by a tablet so you can look and check what you want then order and over it comes within 5-10 minut...es. The food was fine, not great but certainly okay for dinner as were the drinks. Problem came with the bill. of 4900 Yen It just didn't tally with what we had reckoned by over 600 Yen / $6 . Okay, that's not going to break the bank but I prefer transparency in a restaurant as do most people. The charge was 300 Yen per person for a table. Charge for a table?? Where are you meant to eat? There were no signs at all either in the entrance or the place itself showing any such charge ( some places do mention cover charges but at least you know what to expect before you enter ). We're in Tokyo for another 2 weeks or so and had intended to visit Itamae again... but not now. It's not the cost itself, it's the fact they hide it by omission. I don't like underhanded tricks which quite simply leave a bad feeling and ruin what had been a very passable evening. It could only be made worse if the management respond via TA and say " Sorry about this, please visit us again and let us show you how good we are " or similar..That would mean me spending more cash at a place which conned me... not very likely!

resonally good TA review here, it's in a good location of Kabukicho - Shinjuku of Tokyo right around our APA hotel, we should have left when we asked the waiter if we can order Ramen as well when answered rudely that they are a seafood restaurant.. Stale fish on poor qaulity rice roll that was just ...slapped on without any kind of arrangement, let alone beautiful presentation we get in Canadian Japanese restaurant although the restaurant appears to be clean, tidy and well decorated..we ordered from an ipad, a guy dropped our drink and food, never saw anyone from there till we paid our bill at the door.

“Intimate table settings”
The food was delicious as expected. The restaurant vibe was intimate, the service was great and my whole family left stuffed.

Unfortunately this was the only time I was overcharged in Japan for a meal in 6 years visiting the country. The English-speaking waiter suddenly spoke little English when I challenged him on the items on the bill that we hadn't ordered. The sashimi I had was tired but my colleague enjoyed his tuna p...latter. Atmosphere was dead. This is in a tourist area so don't expect much. The English-language menus attract tourists with low expectations. Avoid
