There are mixed reviews of this restaurant. Sushi Hyo consistently ranked in the top restaurants of all different cuisine and probably one of the top 3 Japanese restaurants. I highly recommend to make a reservation at the sushi bar with the master chef and founder Hyo Ju Ahn. He is not there every night but he is the one who... More

Visited Sushi Hyo for a business lunch. Excellent Japanese meal, courses well-timed to keep the lunch moving. Fully - and fairly - priced. Excellent service. Not one weak moment or course. Very solid, indeed.

For two people, the bill came out to nearly USD 400. Not only was it severely over priced, the food was horrible. I would not even pay USD 15 per person for that meal. This place also misleads customers by calling it "Sushi". They should just call it "Wannabe Sushi" because they serve it Korean style, which is diff from... More

The ambiance was good but on a July day - a little too hot inside. Service was simply impeccable! Attentive, friendly, warm. Sushi was just ok. And for the price I would expected to be 'wow'd'. I tend to look at the quality of the uni. If this meets the mark - then I expect the rest to be great.... More

Stunning Sushi. The variety of sushi was amazing with not a piece of salmon in sight. Each piece of sushi was expertly prepared by our sushi chef (with an impressive knife) and served to us piece by piece. My Korean guide got us to eat traditional with our hands and the chef changed his rice density to meet this. The... More

I made reservation before I arrived in Korea for my vacation. My mother, my niece and I took at the seats in front of serving chef B, young person. He was quite entertaining with manners and served many sushi decently. I liked torched sushi better than raw ones. Fish over shell fish (ebi, and all sorts of clams) They put... More

Sushi Hyo is hidden away in the Somerset Palace Hotel. The multicourse meal including soups, sushi, abalone and more was just amazing. Many different tastes and textures. Great service. It was an enjoyable and relaxing evening.

Most people focus on the fish when it comes to sushi, but the key to a good sushi is getting the balance just right between the rice and the fish. And the rice part is more important than most people give credit. Just ask Jiro Ono of "Jiro Dreams of Sushi." That same dedication to rice is evident at Sushi... More

Been to Sushi Hyo twice and it does not disappoint, as an authentic Tokyo style sushi restaurant. The fatty toro was spectacular as was the uni (skip the rice and have it served in a little bowel). English speaking staff is limited so sit at sushi counter and point away. Not for the cost conscious as the fish is all... More
