Rated as one of the Top 100 restaurants in Tabelog, 9th among the sushi shops in Tokyo, it is popular for some reason. Yet, it is not listed in the Michelin guide.
My favorite nigiri sushi shop in Tokyo? Probably not. But they do superb grilled unagi – nicely grilled with a slightly crispy texture. Their tuna, aji, kohada, ikura, uni, hamaguchi outperformed their white fish sushi, that’s why I enjoyed the latter part of the meal more than the first few bites. The sushi ended with their steam egg – sweet and soft like egg pudding.
It’s a good deal in general.

One thought on “Ichiyanagi (すし家一柳), Tokyo”
Very well put! Agree completely. Second part of the meal outperformed first part by at least 50%.
Enjoyable meal overall.
Will I go back? Probably not.
