Tsukiji Sushicho, Main Store Reviews

Tsukiji Sushicho, Main Store Google Average Rating



We came early before the store is opened and the queue is already more than 15.
We have to wait for more than an hour but it's all worth the effort. Fresh sushi, reasonable price and the chef is so friendly.
We love all the variants. Just ask for lunch set so you can try a bit of everything and you don't need to explain, especially if you're foreigner. And dont forget to put your name on the waiting list in front of the store otherwise all your waiting will be a waste


Located near Tsukiji, this standing sushi bar offers fresh and delicious sushi at reasonable prices. Whether you prefer sets or individual pieces, the options cater to various preferences. A delightful spot for sushi enthusiasts!


I was in Tokyo for one week late October 2023, and this was the best dining experience I had during my visit.

While on the hunt for some nigiri around the Tsukiji markets, I happened to walk past this place around 9am. I checked the google scores and saw the high ratings and that they open at 11:15am, so I decided to come back around opening time.

After some nigiri elsewhere and coffee at the wonderful Turret Coffee nearby, I came back around 11:20am to see a lot of people sitting outside already and realised you had to write your name down. There was already one and a half rows of names (all in Japanese), so I was even more compelled to dine in, so wrote my name down.

As I was by myself, I was hoping that I may get a spot quicker than groups of 2+ but this wasn't the case, which is fair and fine. As I wasn't sure how long it would be, I ended up waiting...and waiting. I finally got in around 12:30pm. Time slows down when waiting!

But it was worth it! Service was so friendly and fun. Each nigiri was beautiful. I enjoyed with some sake, and the handroll had beautifully crunchy nori and the fatty tuna was I think the best I've ever had (so got one more!). I tried a lot of varieties of nigiri I've never had, and truly everything was fresh and delicious. Some nigiri has yuzu rind, which provided subtle sweet and sourness to some of the richer fish, some nigiri was raw, some lightly grilled by being torched. Just stunning.

Definitely worth it, not just for the perfect food, but the unique experience of standing in a tiny sushi bar, eating beautiful food with friendly sushi chefs, and happy people surrounding you.
