Amazing sushi with a menu that is updated daily. Great service and ambiance, and easy to book via Opentable instead of jumping through hoops like other sushi restaurants.

We had a great experience at Sushi Fukumoto. The space is simple and intimate. Service is friendly and helpful. The quality of the food is outstanding. We had a little trouble finding the restaurant, and one of the staff members found us on the street after I called. The meal started off a little formally, but soon relaxed into an intimate affair. Just watching Chef Fukumoto work was a treat, and the food was even better. The staff was friendly, helpful and conversant in English. This was our best meal in a two-week visit to Japan. Not cheap, but good value...

Valued omakase sushi. The chef is a bit shy to foreigners, but he seems to welcome foreigners a lot.

This was a very nice experience. If you want a first hand experience for a quality omakase but don't want to burn a hole in your wallet than sushi fukumoto is where you should go.

First sushi experience in Japan and well worth the cost and commute. This was the best sushi dining I’ve ever experienced; the 13-piece nigiri course opened up my eyes to the possibilities and subtleties of well executed sushi. Given that it’s one of a handful of places on OpenTable, it’s a no brainer if you’re looking for an authentic sushi experience when visiting Tokyo.

This restaurant is tucked away in the lower level of a small street about a 15 minute cab from Shinjuku. The restaurant only has around 10 seats, all in front of the chef who creates each piece of nigiri and places it in front of you. The experience was a little intimidating at first, as we speak little/no Japanese and were surrounded by locals peering at our attempt to align with all proper etiquette and customs of eating sushi in Japan. The waiter spoke decent English and explained the dishes as the meal progressed... It cost about $280 USD for 2 of us (including a bottle of sake). Though dress code is ‘business casual’ the vibe inside is very laid back.

My family had a wonderful time and unique experience at Sushi Fukumoto. We were in Tokyo for a few days and I made a booking a couple of months in advanced since I wanted to make sure I could get the date that I needed.
We were seated at the bar right in front of where the master was working. They have staff that explained what we were eating and most importantly, how to enjoy the sushi. We also had a 4 year old with us and they were very accommodating. We ordered the complete omakase and were able to share some of the dishes with our child.
We stayed in Shinjuku and the restaurant was just a train ride and short walk away. Nice neighborhood and easy to find.
If you are looking for a special experience with some out-of-this-world sushi, I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant was a wonderful experience. The food, ambiance, and service were delightful. We have experienced several omakase sushi both in Japan and the United States. Sushi Fukumoto rates as one of our best experiences.

Excellent sushi! Unforgettable- multi-sensory experience with fresh seafood. The chef knows the perfect way to present the best essence of each material and ingredient - he is an artist of gastronomy! Highly recommend.

Best sushi I’ve ever had. The staff is also very friendly to English speakers (our hostess showed us a translation with pictures before every piece of nigiri that the chef prepared). Definitely lives up to its Michelin star reputation.

We were celebrating our engagement and this was definitely an experience we will never forget! Each piece of art that chef Fukumoto prepared for us was SO Delicious. It’s so hard to explain. Each piece of sushi was so well balanced. Between the fish, rice, and perfect seasoning. We had the Omakase meal and by the end I was so stuffed. It’s definitely expensive but worth the cost. The staff was so kind and explained in English what the chef was doing, what we were eating, and how to eat it. Absolutely recommend this place. A wonderful experience! Thank you Chef Fukumoto and Nozomi for a lovely dinner!

Very nice restaurant and experience. This was our first time in a high-end sushi restaurant and we can indeed say that the sushi was the best we have ever eaten. The ambiance was fairly intimate (the counter has around 10 seats), refined but friendly. We didn't speak Japanese, but the waitress spoke English and translated to us the names of the fish used in the various sushi pieces. Even chef Fukumoto tried to make some conversation with the waitress acting as an interpreter :) Being able to observe the chef working and the preparation of each piece was definitely an interesting experience.
The value for money was good (we took the sushi menu) compared to other Michelin-starred restaurants in Tokyo, but keep in mind that this is not the kind of restaurant where you get full on the cheap!

Un locale fantastico per il suo essere minimal e al tempo stesso carico di “sostanza”. Gentilissime e amabili le due ragazze che servono ai tavoli, prodighe di spiegazioni ed anche di qualche discreta battuta di spirito. Ma è quello che si prepara e chi lo prepara che fa la differenza: un maestro vero, dalle pochissime parole e dalla grande concentrazione, che mette amore in ogni singola portata. Inutile descrivere il percorso e le pietanze che lo compongono (ci sono due percorsi degustazione, uno base e uno completo): tutto ciò che viene servito è veramente speciale, un viaggio sensoriale complesso che solo in Giappone potevamo sperimentare. Torneremo

Superb food for a very very reasonable price. Chef Fukumoto and his team were very friendly and explained all the ingredients (and their origins) in our omakase despite us not being able to speak Japanese. The dishes were perfectly seasoned, including the non-sushi dishes. We had a wonderful time there and would definitely recommend this place to our friends who are heading to Tokyo.

Although the chef didn't use super expensive sushi topping, it's really a surprise that all sushi pieces were super delicious. The chef techniques and skills are so awesome that he could make not-so-expensive item shining out like that.
