Gardena >Tsukiji Restaurant
very fresh sashimi, friendly host, friendly waitstaff, good service, never bad chef experience, favorite hostess bar, authentic sushi
Old Favorite. I've read the three prior reviewsand have to say I have a different view of Tsukiji. For the past year I have frequented Tsukiji about once a month. In all these outings I have never had a bad Chef experience, never hurried, (I can be there for 4-5 hours at a time) The host and waitstaff are friendly and the service is good. (Not the quality service you will get in Japan however) The food has always been fresh, though my friends say the uni is hit and miss. Still I recommend as an Old Favorite.
Bad service by sushi chef. Our sushi chef was horrible. He was SO rude and unfriendly - very unprofessional attitude. We had to finish our dinner in twenty minutes (eating sushi fast is not a pleasant experience), and the chef kept sighing because he wanted us to leave ASAP so that he can frequent his favorite hostess bar. We only stayed 15 minutes past their closing time (by the way, we were NOT the last customers there). If we paid over $125 for just us two, I expect a little courtesy and respect. Overall, I felt very uninvited and uncomfortable at this restaurant! I'm a native Japanese myself and not feeling comfortable at a sushi place because of the chef, is a bad sign!
Tsukiji Sushi Restaurant. The restaurant seemed appealing at first and the food was really good, but the service of the sushi chefs was intolerable. I will never come here again.
If you are looking for authentic traditional Edo mae (style) sushi & sashimi, you can't miss Tsukiji. Even if not, you won't regret! They have a very good deal for lunch. (You may need to make a line before open to get seated.)
Not to mention, they have very fresh sashimi & sashimi for dinner. I enjoed their sushi & sashimi a lot!
