Sushi Hazuki
The choicest quality sushi with specially selected seafood in Shimomaruko

“Sushi Hazuki”, a place made popular by their reasonably priced yet carefully selected top quality seafood, located in Shinmaruko, Tokyo, a short distance from the city center. “Whenever you make sushi with good quality seafood, the price goes up. I want customers to enjoy sushi casually without worrying about the cost,” says owner Michiaki Sato, who decided to set up shop in his hometown.

Food was exceptional. Very nice omakase experience with a very nice chef. My personal favourites are the oyster and the uni. Thank you very much for being so accommodating to change us to a later seating on the same day.


Kioicho Mitani
A well-known restaurant with difficulty making a reservation, a fresh hospitable setting

Kioicho has come to be known as a business district and high-class residential area after a famous Daimyo (feudal lord) family established a residency there during the Edo period. Chosen for its suitability to the area, the sushi restaurant Kioicho Mitani was invited to be a part of a new landmark - Tokyo Garden Terrace Kioicho, a large-scale commercial facility opened in 2016.

Michelin 2 star French, showing all the respect to its location, Asakusa Tokyo

"Restaurant HOMMAGE" located in a calm residential area at Asakusa, a downtown of Tokyo. Born and raised in Asakusa, studied at Michelin three star restaurant in France, Chef Arai is now the owner chef of this Michelin two star French restaurant. Enjoy the refined French cuisine with the taste of JAPAN.

We absolutely loved our experience at Hommage. Every dish was delicious - we particularly enjoyed the Beetroot tartar, Lilyroot salad, Sweet tomato salad, Amadi fish, the beef and all the desserts! The straight-out-of-the oven financiers were a lovely touch! We also enjoyed the warm service provided by the Hommage team. We love to engage and share a laugh with the people who work so hard to make these experiences special ones - and the team at Hommage definitely delivered. We moved to Tokyo this week to live for three years. We expect that we will return to Hommage more than once when friends and family visit. Thank you so much!


Nishiazabu Otake
Enjoy the taste of the season to the fullest with a menu that features dishes from a prominent restaurant, as well as original fare.

After spending 10 years as an understudy at the renowned "Takada Hassho" in Gifu, followed by 6 years managing the "Kogane" and "Wakamiya Hassho" locations, Mr. Tetsuya Otake decided the time was ripe to start an independent venture in Tokyo. In December 2017 his restaurant, named Nishiazabu Otake, opened its doors.

Age: 40's Date of visit: 9/2018 Number of visits: 1 Purpose: With friend

This was an excellent evening. Mr Otake greeted us very warmly. The drinks menu has an English translation, and Mr Otake cleverly provided English translation for the food with his smart phone. The choice of drinks was excellent. We started with Ayala champagne before moving onto Sake (Mr Otake’s selection). The food was sensational. Every course was full of flavour and beautifully executed with fine seasonal ingredients. Throughout the two hour and a half hours we were treated to careful excellent preparation and friendly service. This feast is half the price of some restaurants we visited in Tokyo and that can only be because Mr Otake has not yet had time to earn the Michelin stars and reviews to charge international prices! I would recommend booking this restaurant now while it retains its authentic magic.


Sushi Nakamura
A new style of Edomae-style sushi with an unique sense

"Sushi Nakamura" locates in Roppongi, an area with many famous restaurants, and aims to establish a new style of Edomae-sushi; using clever techniques and preparation methods, it creates unique sushi and side dishes which are well received, bringing in many sushi fans.

Age: 40's Date of visit: 9/2018 Number of visits: 1 Purpose: With friend

Despite sushi being a somewhat serious affair, dining at Nakamura does not feel intimidating, especially for non-Japanese speaking guests like us. Chef Nakamura-san is attentive but you can also catch him smiling at his guests. He seems genuinely hospitable. We enjoyed the range of fish and shell-fish served, and the perfect balance of neta to shari. The ikura and uni were some of the best that we've tasted - crisp, clean, savoury and sweet at the same time. My companion who does not usually like ikura, admits that Nakamura's sushi was the "life-changing" piece. We enjoyed our meal, and would like to return every season if we can!

The Owner Chef Otsuki Takumi training 3 years and 3 month in France to open this restaurant. He started in Michelin 3-star restaurant “Le Petit Nice”, finished in 5-star restaurant.

My wife and I love the restaurant very much. You can tell the chef had given a lot of thoughts into each dish and it just turned out perfectly. I always love small restaurant and Takumi is just about right. The wine was well matched with the food and they are inexpensive. We will revisit again.

Shiro-ebi, kanpachi, hotate, and unagi were especially delicious today. I was very impressed by and grateful for the chef’s skills and exceptional understanding of delicate tastes. It was worth visiting, and I’d like to visit the restaurant again.

Age: 20's Date of visit: 1/2019 Number of visits: 1 Purpose: Date
Experiencing our first omakase here at Ginza Iwa was amazing. The preparation of each course was beautifully done and tasted delectable. I recommend Ginza Iwa to anyone who wants to experience sushi at its finest.
