One goes to Tsukiji for two things: its perfectly fresh seafood and the many years of assurance that it will be just so, every single time, as well as its top floor location, which also provides privacy for meetings.
The wait staff have also been there for a long time so they know their customers well and handle questions easily. Since the menu is based on traditional Japanese dishes, the way it would be perfectly served in Japan, the best dishes to try would be their meticulously prepared sashimi and sushi, as well as their shabu-shabu. Tsukiji’s tuna sashimi is clearly fresh and the portion is perfect for the diner. Their tonkatsu, although not a dish that they are celebrated for, is nonetheless beautifully fried. It is moist and greaseless—a good foil for all the fresh items on the menu.
