Sukiyabashi Jiro Restaurant Review

: Sukiyabashi Jiro is known as one of the best sushi restaurants in the world, and it has become even more famous among foodies since the 2011 documentary film “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” profiled the restaurant and its 89-year-old owner, Jiro Ono. He is assisted by his eldest son, Yoshikazu, and a dedicated team in his pursuit of perfecting the art of sushi and sourcing the freshest, highest quality fish available. Raw octopus is massaged for an hour until it reaches the desired level of tenderness. Reservations are required --- and difficult to acquire --- as there are only 10 seats in this tiny sushi bar. These lucky few diners enjoy a parade of around 20 pieces of nigiri sushi delivered one by one. Don’t expect to find any sashimi or side dishes, nor are you be provided with wasabi or soy sauce as these condiments are already incorporated into the finished product. Be prepared for a hefty price: a meal here costs 30,000 yen (about $300 USD) per person. Beer and sake are available. Jiro Ono’s younger son, Takashi, operates a sister location of Sukiyabashi Jiro in Roppongi Hills.
