Finally, I decided to look around Tsukiji market for other options. Then I notice that there are two Sushi Zanmai restaurant there. One is more up scale and while the other is more tourist friendly on kaiten belt. Do go for the up scale one. The kaiten belt sushi is not so fresh. I begin to wonder why their have same restaurant but two different concept there. The kaiten belt version is not cheap either.
Taste:10/10(Excellent. Really fresh sushi and the taste is balanced. Try it to know it).
Price:3/10(Expensive. Although the price is on the high side, but it worth it. Twelve pieces of premium sushi below priced at 3150 Yen (MYR126)).
Really good sushi. Included here is broiled high quality sea eel which is very delicious.
This is first time I tasted raw prawn. Its so creamy and juicy!
Crab claw. Priced at 418 Yen (MYR17). This is very good. Super creamy and succulent.
To get fresh ikura, it must be crystal clear. All the fish type sushi here are from fatty type of fish. Also the first time I tasted chive buds sushi (green). Tamago - sweet omelette and my favourite sea urchin.
Shishamo also known as fried smelt usually full with roe.
Full with roe. Its delicious!
Friendly and skilled chefs.
This is a three storey high restaurant. Begins pack with people as nearly lunch time.
Make sure you come to this Sushi Zanmai restaurant.
Don't come to this tourist targeted Sushi Zanmai restaurant. Its kaiten belt but the sushi don't seems to make on the spot and not so fresh. I actually already seated in this restaurant but when I looked at the sushi, I lost my appetite. Not worth to come to this restaurant. Do make sure you visit the main Sushi Zanmai shop which is 3 storey high in Tsukiji
