Yamazaki was our finish sushi meal in Tokyo. It did not disappoint us in terms of the quality of the sushi. The texture of the rice is just right and the seafood was absolutely fresh from the sea. We especially like the fatty tuna which...More

We saw the much longer lines at two other restaurants in this aisle at Tsukiji market and couldn't bear to wait over an hour. We're glad we didn't. We waited about 15-20 minutes and had an excellent, very fresh sushi breakfast.

This is my favourite restaurant in the whole of Japan. Whenever we come to Tokyo, we will definitely come by to Yamazaki twice per trip to have our breakfast here. Our favourite chef here is Sato-san and the food here is excellent. For a mind...More

Quality comparable to Daiwa Sushi next door, but queue is much shorter. There was a young chef who could converse in English. When a couple did not have enough cash to foot the bill, he drew the location of convenience store and ATM on the...More
