I am certain we embarrassed our hosts with how much sushi we ate and sake we drank here. It was so delicious we could not help it. It was convenient to our hotel, but allowed us to feel like we were going out. Every bite we had was better than the next! Worth it!

We are big sushi eaters. This kind of resto is on our bucket-list when we travel. First of all, full props to them for allowing children under the age of 16 to dine. The service, ambiance and food was good although the omakase meal was very pricey, about $225 per person. I'm not sure its worth the money considering all... More

Being a big sushi lover who makes sushi regularly at home I had high expectations of this place which were definitely lived up to. The setting is fairly basic and all in traditional bar style seating. Don't let the fact you order from a menu with pictures put you off! In this case it's quite helpful! I enjoyed every piece...

Over price for average quality fish they serve. Over $200 per head I expect at least a couple pieces of toro instead of average grade tuna. Very little food for set dinner even though my wife and I are small eater.

Lunch at Kyubey is pricey in a city where you can get excellent sushi at reasonable prices. But if you can afford it the omakase lunch (12 pieces of sushi, clam soup and a few extras) is the cheapest way to have a high level sushi experience. We had our own sushi chef who hand prepared each piece and presented... More

One of our goals was to get Omakase in Japan. For the price compared to the US, the quality and experience was worth it. Chef had 45 years experience as a sushi chef. Leave the meal up to him. A truly unforgettable experience.

This was our last journey on our visit of Tokyo. We stayed at Keio Plaza hotel and had enough time before we got on limo to the airport but not too far away. We decided to go here due to great reviews. We had bad experience of sushi in Omotesando and gave a another try. AND it was PERFECT LAST... More

One of the very few renown excellent restaurants that allows children (we have a 5 year old); so we were thrilled to have the opportunity to experience a formal Japanese kaiseki style meal. The balance of Michelin starred places bar children. We sat in a room that was manned by a chef and a second, and allowed for 10 people... More

Stayed one week in Shinjuku. Pretty much over priced, over hyped, smoke filled room. What amazed me was, Japanese are willing to pay for dinning out. I.e $200.00 per person on Tepanyaki or $150.00 for Italian food modified for Japanese taste.
