I've been researching for an excellent sushi restaurant to try while in Hong Kong. Finding tons of recommendations for the Top 5 and very best sushi chefs (such as Kuu, TaKe, Yoshitake, etc). What we're looking for would be a step down from that, any recommendations? Finding it tricky to find the next tier level of sushi restaurants, maybe $100/pp or less.
Research so far suggesting maybe Mori Sushi or Gyotaku? And that there are many on Causeway Bay area that should be very good. Nadaman in the Shangri La?
Our logic on this is that any time we visit a major city, we try to take advantage of at least one high end sushi/Japanese opportunity, (along the lines of Barmasa or Shibuya in Vegas, Nobu, Sushi Taro in DC) For this trip, the timing is not right to treat ourselves to this 2-3* Michelin experience, also one in our party is not really a sushi fan.
If Hong Kong is not a good time to seek out an excellent sushi/sashimi meal, we can skip it. Just assuming the proximity to Japan, the size of the city, the reputation for food quality would mean that there are plenty of Japanese traditional chefs and fresh fish.
Appreciate any feedback! I did research threads here and didn't find what i was looking for, apologies if this topic was covered.
