Kyubey is the place were a lot of sushi chefs are nurtured in. Somehow it’s like a “noble” school for sushi chef. Kyubey isn’t a place to offer you a sushi-making show like many other small sushi places does and it isn’t really a place that demonstrates the style of any sushi chefs.
I am quite happy with the sushi at Kyubey. My favourite was the Otoro and the scallop. It’s a place that gives you decent sushi (not top premium ones) with a reasonable price. But it’s just not a meal that will leave an impression. I believe it’s a good start for people who doesn’t have much sushi experience in Japan and you can work your way up from here.
