Why Sushi Zanmai is special ?

For anyone on a budget who still wants to try Tokyo’s most famous culinary export, one of the 30-plus locations of this popular chain is never far away.

Like many sushi chains, Sushi Zanmai originated in Tsukiji and it claims to be Japan’s first 24-hour, 365-days-a-year sushi bar.

Most branches are decorated in a similar style of light-colored wood and hanging paper lanterns and offer both counter and table seating. Many use the popular and fun “kaiten” (conveyor belt) style as well.

While the quality of food and service alone might not qualify it as everyone’s choice as one of the best sushi restaurants in Tokyo, Sushi Zanmai is usually a safe bet for beginners or those who don’t have thousands of yen to blow on something more exceptional.

You may not get the very top cuts of fish, but you are pretty much guaranteed a good quality meal at prices that are hard to beat.

Nigiri lunch sets start at just ¥1,554 including a small salad and miso soup, and there is a “maguro zanmai” set of various types of tuna sushi for ¥3,150. It’s a great way for even the pickiest of eaters to sample Japan’s national dish.

As sushi "virgins", this was our first time in a real sushi restaurant. Having just visited the fish market, we thought "let's give it a try!" We weren’t always sure what we were eating, but everything was extra fresh and very tasty and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The locals and sushi chef were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

It may take a bit of wandering in the streets of Tsukiji to find Sushizanmai Honjin - but once you arrive you will be welcomed with open arms by the owner - or at least his statue. We went for pretty basic (except the horse mackerel sashimi) and it was spectacular. The melt in your mouth o-toro brought tears to my eyes -- especially because I will have to wait until my next trip to Japan to enjoy it. It's also a fun casual place -- which is what sushi should be about!
