Ninisix you are the best!

I have known for about shimizu for a long time it's full everytime and they do not accept foreign calls.

Is kurusu only open on sat for lunch? I was planning on going Friday and is the lunch a good value compared to dinner?

I will try sushi Fujita for sure since you recommend it - the review on tabelog is not goood for it but I trust you more.

As for the bar that might be a bit hard for us to order is that the only bar you can recommend? Anything with English speaker or menu? Not looking for food just drinks beer mostly sake is good too or cocktail but I hear cocktail is very expensive in ginza

Perfect Ninisix I will book it! Can you please send me the tabelog for fujita so i dont get the wrong one?

Do you have any other recomendations for food? Mainly sushi, unless you know good izakaya or ramen.

I also been to sushi taichi many times already and iwa. I have also been to kimura and masa as well, kanesaka, and a few others to give you an idea what i been to. I still need a good lunch place sushi and 1 dinner sushi.

I found out about taichi because of you, he knows some other sushi chef I know! I was talking to him last time i was there

Also do you know of any good beer or sake pubs in Ginza or Shinjuku? Not high end for these just casual or mid range!

Thank you for your input, so currently the chef at sushi kakutou is different thenthe one you had in April correct? And the price was 10000 yen?

From what I seen in pictures I am not sure if kozasa sushi is worth almost 20000 yen! Can you comment on the value?

Thanks!

Looking for sushi dinner and lunch. Need expert advice!

Hi guys, I have Kozasa sushi shibuya booked so far, looking for more recommendations. I would like to get miyako sushi but that probably won't happen.

I will be staying in the ginza area, but I am willing the travel anywhere.

My price range for sushi lunch is under 10k and dinner time under 20k.

Looking for 3 more recommendations 2 lunch 1 dinner.

I have been to places like IWA, kimura, taichi ect in the past and would like to try a different joint.

Kozasa Sushi Shibuya - Booked. Price change?!

Hi fellow Japan experts, I was wondering if anyone has recently been to Kozasa sushi in Shibuya contact # 03-5458-2828

From what I read on the boards Omakase is 14000 pp. I just booked it and the price has gone up to 18000pp, this is a huge jump - can anyone that has gone recently verify the new price?

And if so is it still worth the visit or should I visit some other place within that range? I am going in 5 weeks.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Very interested in KO. Not a fan of the noodle barthough, imo it lacks when compared to ramen in tokyo.

Sushi Azabu New Chef Inquiry - top tier?

Could be considered as a backup but wouldn't be my first choice of resto.

Looking for a amazing sunday dinner in Manhattan! Suggestions?

Hi, I was originally going to book sushi Azabu, but from the feedback it doesnt seem it will live up to my expectations.

Any other suggestions for a good meal on a sunday night for 2 people? It can range from being cheap - or expensive, to me good food is good food!

I am willing to cab anywhere in the city, and I eat pretty much anything, so any type of restaurant is fine, I have a few weeks before I head over so I would prefer to book sooner rather than later!

Thanks!

Sushi Azabu New Chef Inquiry - top tier?

Blue Ribbon I was always thinking it was a 2nd tier resto - never tried it, but just seeing what they offer on the menu and pictures I never thought of it more of a sushi destination. Which exact location are you talking about and which chef should I book for if I go this route? And what is the price range like?

Could you compare this to say 15 east or brushstroke?

I was also wondering since I see you posting quite often, if you would have a non sushi suggestion for a Sunday?

Thanks for your advice!

Great thanks for the reply I think I will keep away, sounds like I can be having a better meal elsewhere, any suggestions? Doesnt have to be sushi.

Sushi Azabu New Chef Inquiry - top tier?

More like variety, I am assuming since most are closed on sunday - the fish suppliers doesn't send out on sunday, sometimes chef's run out of certain fish by then. Yes aged fish can be good, aged tuna is good for a few days and white fish can be even longer.

Sushi Azabu New Chef Inquiry - top tier?

Hey thanks for getting back to me both of you!

I am going early oct, so probably will pick a different restaurant then.

Do you have any other recommendations, for a sunday? I was thinking of KO. Never been, I eat quite a bit of asian food in general, and spend a lot of time in asia as well. Would this place be anything special or am I better off trying a different restaurant? This will be a reservation of two.

Sushi Azabu New Chef Inquiry - top tier?

Hello, I been following this board for awhile, and always trust the suggestions of fellow CHers. I have the opportunity to eat at Sushi Azabu or selecting another restaurant.

My questions are:

Sushi Azabu, has received a lot of mixed reviews on this board, and with a new chef, I was wondering if its worth the Omakase price point of starting at $120? What will I receive for that 120? Anyone that has gone recently can break it down? I will choose only nigiri none of the cook food for me or sashimi for that matter.

I have been to yasuda, kurmua, brushstroke, 15 east, ushi. 15 east and brushstroke stand out for me. Will I be disappointed with the style and format of Azabu, would you put this resto at the same level as 15 east and brushstroke?

My last concern, although it shouldnt be a problem but doesnt hurt to ask I will be dining at Azabu on a Sunday, which most sushi joints are closed in NYC. Will this affect the avail of sushi and variety? I don't want to go on a day that the sushi will not be at its best.

If you have any other suggestions for other restaurants on a Sunday, doesn't have to be Sushi related, but very good food cheap or expensive is fine, please let me know. I am open to all suggestions!

Thanks for all your help!
