What we love…
- The idea of fast-food sushi can make some people squeamish, but this is not at all what you think.
This is probably the best budget option for sushi in Tokyo. Here you'll dine amongst local office workers who have no time for a sit down meal all looking for awesome sushi on their lunch break—the solution? Stand at the bar while you eat.
Sushi is hand rolled by a super efficient chef who will have you fed and happy and on your way in less than 15 minutes. The sushi is fresh and delicious, and as good as many of the more expensive place we tried in the city. The idea is you can charge less if the turn over is greater. We're sold.
- Sure the atmosphere is rushed (everyone IS standing), but that's much of the charm in of this Tokyo gem.
- The restaurant fits about 15 people max, and you'll be jammed in next to a stranger, but you won't care once the sushi comes out. You can take one of the take set menu options which starts at ¥580 and comes with 8 pieces of sushi and miso soup. Or if you'd rather pick your sushi items go à la carte at ¥200, which is actually 2 pieces per serving.
- There's 18 locations in the city, so feel free to stumble upon them rather then hunt them down, and trust us on this one, you want to experience standing sushi at least once while you're in Tokyo.
