Just had dinner at this starred establishment. The chef was extremely friendly. The ingredients were as fresh as you could get. He excelled more on the sashimi/snacks than on the sushi. I found the sushi rice (marinated with red vinegar) a bit too sour for my taste. Often, the taste of the vinegared rice overwhelms the fish.
Here is what I had.
baby octopus + miso sauce (had the same baby octopus at Ryugin, both were divine)
octopus + salt (tender yet chewy. Still, I found Sushi Saeki's octopus is by far better)
snapper + fish bone sauce (simply divine)
abalone + abalone liver sauce (the sauce is particularly impressive)
Bonito sashimi (smoked) (very good)
Bowl of crab, uni, sea cucumber (ok)
ebi (this really stands out, very impressive)
hand roll of uni and tuna (a freebie)
