This was my last meal in Japan and I loved it. I came in just at opening and was sat immediately. English menu is available, and as many reviewers have noted the items on the train itself can be limited and you'll just order anything you want from the menu. This was super easy, just a quick "sumimasen" followed by... More

I am not that much into sushi, but this experience at this place is absolutely to recommend. Fresh, tasty and simple when it is best. The prices are good and the quality in top. Go there.

We went at noon for lunch. It was already busy and we got the last 2 seats. The sushi was good especially the jumbo conger, unagi and sea urchin. The only negative point was that the selection on the conveyor was rather limited. We had to order most of what we wanted from the menu. While it wasn't a big... More

You can choose sushi depending on plate color (different plate - different price), though even in lower prices plates there are nice choices. In the evening you might have to wait in the row because this place is really popular :)

Was there on a Friday around 1pm and seats were immediately available. They had an English menu. Besides all the expected items there were seasonal/special items written in Japanese on the wall. Would go back.

Last visit was two years ago and it was absolutely delicious and unforgettable. Did checked out latest reviews before going again and was hoping those reviews were not true. Luckily I searched the location first and found out they moved. Went to their new shop at 4 p.m. when it was totally empty. We had wanted to order the most... More

Not to be missed. Best value for money sushi. It's a conveyor belt sushi but done with exceptional quality. Very fresh and huge pieces of fish sitting on top of a small portion of rice. Tuna was very fresh, tuna belly (otoro and chutoro) was delicious and inexpensive. Turned up early for lunch, no queue. Total of 16 plates of... More

It's a shame that people are coming here for sushi when visiting Japan. This place might be average AT BEST in Midwest America, but it's lower quality than just about any place in NYC. Every other meal at random places has been of significantly higher quality than this restaurant that we purposefully went to. Definitely the lowest quality meal on... More

This place is well worth a visit. Nice and fresh sushi, fair price. But be prepared to wait in line.
