Edo style Sushi at Ginza Kyubey
When you go you have to make a reservation. Try for the sushi bar on the main floor. When you order let the sushi chef pick what you will have. They will adapt things you thought you can’t eat. You will get what is excellent that day. Being a traditional sushi bar its just a real treat to sit and watch the chefs at work and have the chef explain to you what he is doing. One sushi chef serves maybe 4 people maximum, so the service is personal and friendly. Tremendous care goes into what they make.
Excellent fish, excellent technique, and impeccable customer service. It is not cheap but in the end you will leave feeling that the money and time spent at Kyubey was worth it all. Highly recommended!
