Sushi Taira Reviews

Outstanding value for the Omakase lunch course here at 13,000 Yen. They don’t skimp on the offering unlike some places where a lot of premium ingredients are reduced on purpose

The current chef used to work in San Diego so his English quite good. He’s able to explain everything quite well adding to the overall feel.

To be fair, I find omakase in San Diego lacking so I was a bit apprehensive when he first told me 😂

Pleasantly surprising part was that the chef marinated or aged a lot of his fish. This is super important for me and distinguish a good sushi chef from the ordinary one.

Sushi Taira is also located in one of the most posh area of Tokyo so you can have a nice stroll after the meal.


Sushi Taira is not just lunch or dinner, but an experience. Chef prepares a set menu right in front of you and serves sashimi, nigiri and maki one by one. The flavours are exquisite, and the whole process makes you appreciate the beauty and the skill of this culinary art.


Great chef and staff. Very intense and controlled experience. Excellent seafood ingredients and rice. The chef also speaks English very well so it was very easy to talk about all the details of each serving. うれしい!
