Nihonbashi is one of my favorite restaurants. My favorite menu items are: Handroll - Tensabi Temaki Edamame Namaharumaki Then the Wasabi Ice-cream at the main restaurant is a must try!

Restaurant has a huge menu. The highlights for our visit were the tempura curry leaves, Tuna nigiri and Ten Sabi Temaki. The fusion items are well hidden on the menu so make sure you ask your server about them.
