We love visiting markets and the ones in Japan are particularly interesting because of their ample seafood. Omicho in central Kanazawa is no exception. While the smallish (compared to Osaka & Tokyo) covered market sells all types of food; from fresh meats, poultry to vegetables and tea - it is the seafood that stands out given Kanazawa's proximity to the...

Came alone in the snow for breakfast. Already had 4 other patrons. Ordered the kaisendon. Impressive looking, fresh but thin slices. Left half the rice. Cannot go wrong with Kanazawa seafood

English below 19時閉店で、18時に入店。まだ1時間あるはずが、ドタバタと追い出す気丸だし。メニューはというと、すしだけ。ビールのつまみにと、枝豆とかないか聞いたところ「すし屋だから鮨だけ」ときた。確かに鮨を食いに行ったけど、この返事は何だ?おまけに禁煙席を頼んだわけだが、要は「あんたたちは、ここで隠れていてね」と言わんばかりの席。皿が空くのを見張っていてさっさと片付けようとする態度。挙句の果てに、暖簾をしまうや否や、ネタをしまう前からカウンターの後ろでさっさと煙草に火をつけるシェフ。絶対進めません! This restaurant closes at 19PM. We went there at 18PM and we were basically unwelcome. They offer only sushi, no other food that goes well with beer. The waitress told us, "We're sushi restaurant!" Yes, we know. But most other restaurants serve other munches and delicacies even if they are also specialized in sushi. They were quick... More

I went this restaurant for lunch. 5 people were waiting outside. staff made a sheet for me because I was alone. I choose special sushi.it wasn't bad. They don't have English menu. You can choose from photo menu. They don't accept card. 平日の正午に行きました。店が分からずウロウロしてしまいました。5人ほど待っていましたがスタッフに尋ねるとすぐに座れました。金沢の市場にある寿司なので期待し過ぎました。まずまずですかね。

We came for lunch without reservation but fortunately there were just 2 seats available so we didn't have to wait. The seafood/sushi was really fresh, and we also liked the snow crab, Price wise is not cheap, but better than what you'd pay in Tsukiji / Ginza restaurants. Friendly sushi chef and efficient service. Would recommend.

We chanced upon this restaurant while visiting Omicho market. There was already a long queue at 10am in the morning. We decided to join in the queue with the locals. Tried the kaisen don, ikura don, flamed/grilled sashimi. The sashimi was the best we ever tasted - went for seconds. The rest of the food was also fresh and good.

The kaisen Don is highly recommended. Filled with various fish cuts, Shiro ebi, snow crab, umi, tako and scallop. It is not cheap but the quality is very good. There are lots of locals waiting for seat when we were there. The sushi and grilled Toro also very good

Visited this restaurant with a Goodwill Guide in September 2014. We had indicated that we wanted excellent sushi for a birthday celebration. It was on a Sunday at lunchtime, and many Kanazawa sushi restaurants are not open at that time. This one is in Omicho Market. She must have made reservations because there was a very long line but we... More
