Great sushi spot. Wonderful all you can eat free sushi choice option really fills you up and the cost is certainly not sky high. Budget ¥5000 per person. Ganglia prawns are an exciting order, but the best taste is in the white fish and tuna options.


This place is pretty good. The staff are friendly, the food is great and reasonably priced. You need a reservation. I've been several times. There's a 70 minute time limit for all-you-can-eat course, but it's that only in name since you only get to order about 15 or 16 times. Some items are limited to one or two times per visit, total, and some things a la carte. The seating is very limited and also a bit tight. The food was very, very good. The anago was so fluffy, with a crisp outside. The amaebi were so thick and they had shiroebi that was almost as good. The grilled shrimp heads are very tasty. The uni was very fresh. The madai and hotate are great, so is the kimedai and chutoro. They offer a large variety, with seasonal items. I'm looking forward to going back.


One of my favorite sushi restaurant in Tokyo! The all-you-can-eat formula is perfect. The staff is very nice and the fish is fresh. You can try a lot of different kind of sushi in a limited time, with a soup and a dessert. You absolutely need to make a reservation if you want to go


It's a really cool place recommended by my local colleague which most tourists wouldn't be able to find. Rare in the sense that they offer all you can eat for 90 minutes, and it cost about 4000 yen. Great value if you are a big eater. The quality is better than average (say sushi-zaman) and you get fruits and chawamushi (steamed egg) to go with it. Only negative was they only serve chu toro (medium fatty tuna) and not ootoro (fattiest tuna)
