Feel the Edo when Sushi was invented and perfected. Slip back in time as you walk through Noren, the traditional Japanese curtains. Byobu, Ukiyoe, Nishijin-ori ceiling, and the Japanese lantern. Enjoy all the classic, photogenic Edo-themed decor. You can order the way they used to order back in the Edo period. Just pick an ingredient and choose a cooking method:sushi, sashimi, grilled, steamed, or stewed. The stalls and the craftmen resemble the scene from Ukiyo-e. We have Happi/Kimono ready for you to wear, no reservations needed. You can take pictures of yourself in classic gear as a capture of the moment. We also offer the fastest free wi-fi, so you can post your awesome pictures on the facebook, instagram, or any other sites of your choice.

Maybe better for dinner. Lunch was okay - more expensive than their other location and in my opinion not as good. But ambiance was amazing and we got to try on kimonos. The host and servers were really nice as well. Overall I think it's a good place to check out at least once!

A massive disappointment. Having watched the great review videos they promote on their website, our experience was nothing of the sort. After making a reservation weeks in advance we entered expecting to change into yukatas only to to be told we could “maybe change later” after sitting down. We were then shown to our seat at the bar, and expected to see all the great fish and seafood out on beds of ice, but everything was bare! Instead we sat at the bar beside a few dusty corals and sake bottles (which were very dusty). Next we ordered the matcha expecting to be able to whisk it ourselves (they even have instructions for whisking in the menu) only to be brought out pre-made glasses of matcha tea. Next we ordered some sushi, including the tower and other combos, only to see the chef at the bar pull out a pre-made tray of cut fish and hastily put together our orders. The fish and uni we ordered did not seem the freshest (the uni was brown and mushy, and the tuna tasted fishy and we found several fish scales in our sashimi) and after quickly finishing our meal in disappointment, we quickly left. I should also note that the restaurant was not very busy when we first arrived but gradually began to fill up during our meal. Nobody was given a yukata to wear and you could sense other guests were a bit taken aback at the experience received compared to what they had likely seen promoted on the wonderful video reviews of this place. I get the sense that this place is doing well based on says videos and have let their standards slip as a result. I try to avoid using the term “tourist trap” but I feel that best sums up the bait and switch feeling we had after dining here.

Me and my husband travelled to Japan from London on holiday and was recommended this place by my cousin. Everything about it was really nice, the waitress, the restaurant itself and the chef prepared the meal in front of us as we sat at the counter.
We also got to try on their kimonos which gave the experience a really Japanese feel

They asked for the two places at THE COUNTER after two hours, we were just about to order dessert and they "kindly" asked us out.

最近多い外国人観光客向けのお店なのでしょうか?
メニューにある商品はランチで訪れたのにもかかわらず、既にsold out となっているものも多く またその記載が無いため注文しても品切れです。というものもありました。
ご飯も大きくお酢も効いておらず、お寿司?といった印象でした。
お寿司を食べ慣れていない人にはお店のインテイリアに感心するでしょうが、味わいたくて訪れるならお勧めできません。
このアプリで訪れるお店は良いお店と今一つのお店の差が激しいのが残念です。

Wonderful setting with amazing food! The yukata definitely made the whole experience even better.
Feels like they were a little under staffed the night we went, the waitstaff was running around and trying so hard to meet everyone’s demand.
Overall a great experience and will be visiting again next time we visit Tokyo!

Excellent sushi. Good layout and drink prices, and no shoes which I appreciated. They have lockers for your shoes at the front. Also have traditional Japanese attire (kimonos, etc) if you want to wear it.

Make a reservation. This is the best location b/c of their orchestra style layout of the restaurant where you can see the sushi chef make all of the sushi while cooked items are done in the kitchen in the back. They had all of the items we wanted so that was a plus. Greta value for quality seafood.

土曜日の19時に訪問しましたが、閑散としていました。だんだん人が入ってきましたが、殆どが外国人でした。真正面にいらっしゃる板前さんを囲むようにカウンターがあり、ひな壇のような作りでテーブルがあり、テーブル席からも板前さんが目に入ります。壁や照明が華やかで、舞台装置のようで、外国人には喜ばれそうですが、私はお寿司はもう少し落ち着いた雰囲気でいただきたいな・・と、思いました。

We went there as a family with young kids and the place was excellent. The food was very good and decent value for Tokyo. I would definite recommend friends to go there is they are visiting. I’m sure there are local haunts that have higher quality or better value but this is great

It must’ve been a busy night but several dishes were forgotten on our order. It might’ve been the lack of English speaking employees there. Overall, the food was great and we were able to dress up in geisha outfits for my friend’s bachelorette party in Tokyo! I’d still come back especially for the experience :) great ambiance and decor!

We had a wonderful night at Itamae Sushi Edo. But there’s something about it that just seem out of place.

Welcoming was a bit odd, we were left on the waiting room for a bit before being taken to the wonderful salon that was rather empty. So why wait?

Food and drinks were very good, not a Michelin kind of place, but that was not the case nor their promise. But it was a very good sushi! And prices were quite ok also.

But again, there was something sloppy about the service that made us not feel in Japan at all. Ar first we thought we had fallen in a big tourist trap, but then food was so good and for such a great price in such a beautiful atmosphere that it simply couldn’t be the case.

Well I would definitely recommend it to anyone expecting to spend a night in a great sushi place in Tokyo.

To management: don’t be afraid of foreigners. You could do better.
