Sushisho Saito offers an exceptional sushi experience. The staff were not only amazing but also incredibly friendly, adding a warm touch to the dining experience. The sushi we had was nothing short of amazing, showcasing the skill and expertise of the chefs. The variety of servings provided a well-rounded and delightful culinary journey.

Highly recommended for an outstanding sushi experience with top-notch service!


One of the best sushi restaurants I've been to so far. Reservation is a must here. It's quite an extraordinary experience sitting there watching the master of sushi does their job. Chefs meticulously prepare your sushi while staff are attentive and professional. Sushi are made of freshest ingredients.


I truly enjoyed my dining experience here. Booking a seat wasn’t too difficult and the restaurant is located at a convenient place near metro station.

Please arrive on time for best dining experience. The party next to us arrived 20 minutes late and they eat according to everyone else’s pace.

Everything was delicious and there was a lot of food. Highly recommended.
