Sushi Wasabi Yotsuya Reviews

Easily the highlight of my trip to Japan. The setting inside is very intimate and fits only 9 customers, allowing you to get to know the chef and the people around you during your meal. Chef was very friendly and had a great sense of humor! He used a translator device to communicate freely with us and let us know his reasons for specific courses and ingredients. Additionally, the staff was very attentive and accommodating towards us.

The food itself was delicious. It was fun watching the food get made in front of us and the timing and temperature of each course was just right. Come hungry and make sure you've got time; the meal took about 3 hours and we were incredibly full by the end of it. Fortunately, the station is right outside of the shop, so you should be able to make the train back to your lodgings if you do a late reservation time at 20:45.


Amazing omakase experience right by the train exit! The chef is very nice and will use a translator to interact with you. The fish quality was incredible and we had a great time. You need a reservation so book in advance.


One of the best experiences I had when our family was in Tokyo. The chef doesn’t really speak English, but by using a handheld translator, he was able to communicate with us and boy what a funny guy he is! The food is also great, much better than a Michelin One Star Kaiseki restaurant we tried a few days later. Strongly recommended for anyone who’d like to have a great omakase experience in Tokyo!


Absolutely amazing 😍. It started with oyster with it essence gush with a tad soup. I'm not a fan of uni, but this was the first time I can say uni was delicious. The chef was entertaining and funny. My favorite was the truffle with rice and fish eggs or fish sac. It was heavenly. It was an 2 hour delight. Right outside the sub station also.


This was the best dining experience we had in Japan. Everything people say in their reviews is correct, the food and service is amazing and the chef is hilarious! It was a 10/10 experience and will heavily recommend. Thanks for making our trip so special :)
