    It was a very pleasant experience here. The food was delicious and well presented. Every bite was full of flavor that was perfect in its pairings. I came her with my twin sister and again with my husband and it was consistently good. I highly recommend this place for great sushi and variety and the value is excellent. You can taste these sushis freshness. The chefs were friendly and you can tell they put great pride into their plating and experience.

    Had a wonderful experience celebrating my birthday here. We sat at the sushi bar and had the sushi set menu. The presentation was amazing and the courses kept coming. If you're looking for an authentic Japanese cuisine experience this is the place. They were accommodating to my 9 year old to order a la carte. He is an adventurous eater but note that the sushi menu is limited to the items they are serving on the set menu. There is no other additional options to order from. The staff was welcoming and service was excellent. We definitely want to return to try the shabu shabu. Thank you for a wonderful evening Eigikutei!

    We are delighted to hear about your positive experience at Eigikutei, especially for such a special occasion as your birthday! It's great to know that the sushi set menu not only met but exceeded your expectations with its presentation and variety. It's always a pleasure to see restaurants being accommodating to younger diners with adventurous palates. We appreciate your note on the menu's limitations for those who might be looking for more variety outside the set offerings. The welcoming staff and excellent service certainly seem to have made your visit memorable. I'm looking forward to your insights on the shabu shabu once you have the chance to return. Thank you for sharing your experience, and happy belated birthday!
