Good sushi restaurant, stay at the counter to enjoy seeing the chefs at work. Very friendly service, made great efforts to provide explanations in English and to make us feel welcome.

There is a reason why everybody recommends this place! I haven't been to Japan for so long but this is definitely the best sushi I have ever tasted there and in my life! Well organized service!

My sushi was some of the best I had in Japan, and it was well priced! Would highly recommend if you're looking for great sushi for an amazing value. It's right by the food market, so after you walk through, go here for awesome food.

Waited in line for 30 minutes before we were seated. The service was really quick, seems like a dishes were ready before we ordered it. The sushi was average and expensive, maybe worst we had in Japan. Definitely doesn't worth the waiting time and price.

This was fine, but by far the most average sushi we ate on our trip, and not a great atmosphere. Also did not seem like a very good value. Closed up earlier than noted in guides as well (by 9pm, Not 10). Would have liked...More

This is part of the big Sushi sei chain. It is located in the upscale shopping area of Kyoto in the basement of Daimaru department store. The sushi is pretty good but nothing special. Service is a bit erratic. I enjoyed Kappasushi much better. Not...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
