Review

Setting

Small and intimate, Ginza Sushi Ichi serves the freshest seasonal seafood from Japan delivered daily. Two Japanese chefs prepare your choice of sushi behind an L-shaped counter.

Food

Go for the omakase chef’s choices of the day or smaller sets with less variety. Start with a beautifully arranged traditional festive appetiser, followed by sashimi and sushi meticulously prepared before you. Two slices of raw suzuki (sea bass) with delicate white translucent meat contrasts beautifully with the firm shime saba (cured mackerel) that can be eaten with either soy sauce or salt. Cooked dishes such as stewed ebi imo (taro) sprinkled with crab meat in a rich, thick clear sauce and smoked mackerel are interspersed with eight nigiri mouthfuls such as aji (jack fish), tai (big eye snapper), aori ika (squid), akami and chutoro of bluefin tuna, a combo of uni (sea urchin) and ikura (salmon roe) on sushi rice, anago (salt water eel) and kanpyo roll. Each nigiri is delightfully prepared and presented. End with the house-made tamagoyaki blended with potato and shrimp, Japanese yaminfused miso soup and chilled fresh fruit or salt ice cream waffle for dessert.
