Nishiazabu Sushi Shin Reviews

Nishiazabu Sushi Shin Google Average Rating



One of the most underrated sushi restaurants . Always consistent & solid
Better yet it’s at an incredible price point that can’t be matched , specially at this quality

Shin San isn’t talkative & doesn’t allow pictures of the counter as he feels it distracts him . However when he engages into light conversation he does so with class & kindness


The place has two distinct themes: delicious fish and vinegar! The rice in their sushi has 2 types of vinegar giving it a very distinct subtle flavor. Their smaller plates and even their gari (pickled ginger) has an extremely strong flavor, making it an experience of extremes. The fish was amazing and well done! Totally worth going to taste for yourself! Service was great, as you would expect!


Tiny Sushi restaurant just off the main road in Minato. Passionately crafted sushi served over a 8 seat counter and 2 tables.

Edomae style sushi at its very best. The Chef and his assistant prepares the sushi over the counter with a back kitchen for other prep.

Rice is perfectly cooked to my liking (which is slighter firmer than usual) and seasoned with an umami rich vinegar.

The chefs selection of seafood is amazingly fresh for those that need to be and others are aged to perfection.

Dining room is elegant and simple to steer your attention to the chefs showcasing their skill.

Service is attentive and friendly, being non Japanese, the female manager paid particular attention to explain to us each sushi, where it’s from, how long it’s been aged etc.

Small but nicely curated sake list featuring the chefs favorites.

Definitely great value for money compared to many other places of this standard.

Will definitely be back when I’m in Tokyo again.

A huge thank you to the team that served us.
