A lure for foodie pilgrims & salarymen alike, this unselfconscious, undiluted Japanese is really for those who are serious about raw fish. The speciality of the house is superbly fresh sashimi, with yellowtail & o-toro (fatty tuna) both highly recommended, but it’s well worth exploring other sections of the all-embracing, traditional menu. Among the highlights are miso soup with clams, breaded pork skewers glazed with a darkly sticky sauce, baked aubergine in sweet white miso, deep-fried mackerel & lightly battered tempura prawns. To finish, refresh your palate with green tea ice cream, & sip saké from a pretty pot. Service is graceful & always polite (despite a few communication problems), but eating here doesn’t come cheap – as ever, you get what you pay for.
