The quality of seafood here is only average. This is due to the cheaper price they are selling. If you are on a budget... come here.

The level of fish and variety is something completely different from my home country. It tasted very good. As I was invited I cannot say much about the prices.

We loved this sushi restaurant, from the first step with personnel saying a very loud hello to the very good portions. Fatty tuna and salmon were great and also tempura was amazing. Fresh ingredients and a good quality/price balance. If you choose a combo you spare money. Miso soups were delicious (especially with crab). Great choice. This is just one... More

To go for a above than average sushi restaurant. Suchis are not by pairs but you pay for one qushinat a time. Minimum price 98 yens for a sushi. Tuna chu toro and otoro are especially good and ask also for engawa ! Nice ambiance also.

The Sushi Restaurant is very lively, a little bit noisy but very friendly. The quality of the food is very high, eel and tuna is exceptional. The fish is as fresh as it can be. We liked it very much.

Great standard for a place that's open around the clock. Would love this in London. Tends to fill up with salarymen and hookers early morning but definitely a good experience!

I realize that this is a chain, but considering that our experiences with other smaller sushi restaurants were a bit uneven, Sushizanmai always provided a consistently good level of quality and service. From a tourist's perspective, it was high-quality sushi; it was also full of locals, so I suspect even among Tokyo natives it's appreciated.

The service was excellent. The food we ordered was either excellent or very good. Many locals were visiting and having a good time, a really nice pub atmosphere. The sushi bar is on the first floor, but there is overflow seating and a secondary sushi bar on the 2nd floor. We ate on the 2nd floor

Had lunch at the Ueno branch. They had English menu and ordering was fuss free. Staff was helpful and service was prompt. If you want a sushi quick fix, would highly recommend this place. The broiled fatty tuna was amazing!

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
