Decent prices for great quality, this was definitely the freshest sushi I have ever had. The chef prepares sushi in front of us. The fresh toro and scallops are definitely must try!

Awesome sushi market experience. Roughly 35 minute wait, which was worth it. Food was insanely delicious.

We went here based on tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The sushi were superb! Tasty, fresh and well-prepared. It took us 1.5hrs to line up and it's all worth it! Will come back!

We found this place after visiting the fish market. The place is small so we waited around an hour to get in (go there early because rapidly the queue doubled). The sushis were really good and fresh. Some options on the menu were not available (depending of the stock). Prices are a bit expensive but it worth it. Highly recommended

Excellent food and service. I'd suggest to try the daily special on the wall instead of just a normal set. However, the queue is terrible in weekend.

Sushi as fresh as it gets, warm and excellent service, cosy place. Basically the best sushi we've ever had, and it doesn't cost you the hours wait like the hyped up Sushi Dai a couple of doors away. Why wait for hours when you can walk in here and immediately served one of the best sushi of your life? I... More

My wife and I walked around the Tsujiki Fish Market in search of a place for lunch. There were several shops that had very long queues and some without any customer. We came across Yamazaki which had 5 customers seated at the counter with a few spare seats. We looked through the glass panels and observe an attractive display of... More

One of the best quality sushi I have eaten here. The chefs are quite because of language barrier but very cordial -they even tried to teach me to use chopsticks :-))Long wait always but worth the wait and they don't do takeaway. You cannot leave the Tsukiji fish market without having sushi.

This small restaurant located in the fish market is worth going. The "sushi masters" are really nice and helpful, moreover they have a good English which is really rare. They don't hesitate to advise you on how to properly eat your sushies (Japanese way), which makes me realise that I was far from eating them the right way. Compare to... More

We were lucky to get in fast as the queue had dried up - in 0900 in the morning. Sushi were fantastic and service fast. Tiny place with dozen of seats. Recommended. About 60 EUR for 4.
