I've read the three prior reviewsand have to say I have a different view of Tsukiji. For the past year I have frequented Tsukiji about once a month. In all these outings I have never had a bad Chef experience, never hurried, (I can be there for 4-5 hours at a time) The host and waitstaff are friendly and the service is good. (Not the quality service you will get in Japan however) The food has always been fresh, though my friends say the uni is hit and miss. Still I recommend as an Old Favorite.
Pros: Fresh, firm sushi., Lunch Specials, Friendly atmosphere
Cons: , Speed of service, Average atmosphere
