Directly from the airplane to the master. A great way to come back to Tokyo.

My first visit to Japan was 15 years ago. I tried sushi in a decent sushiya near Tsukiji, the former fish market. I couldn’t eat sushi in Europe for almost 2 years afterwards.
Then I visited Sushi Saito 2016. I couldn’t eat sushi at decent places any more.
My recent visit was another fantastic omakase meal, these are some of the highlights in no particular order.

鮨さいと Sushi Saito
It's been a while to visit Saito-san, and the experience was good as always. The shari with its slightly restrained akazu from Yokoi was delicious and whilst I thought the kohada marinate was a bit on the stronger side, the tuna neta is top notch as always. Great service and Saito-san always has this welcoming vibe... his cost performance is probably the highest of all sushi places.

The master at work. Staring with his otsumami he produces great food. First course was cured ikura. Hardly anybody serves you the perfect combination of popping ikura with a highly acidic sauce which matches perfectly the ikura. At Saito this is expected and will will be routinely served. Followed up by a wonderful dish of crab meat, shirako and an excellent kue (longtooth grouper). In between some succulent ankimo, but probably the highlight this time was the an anago. Spongy, but crispy, served... More

Dinner at Saito is always a treat. The otsumami are fantastic, every changing with seasonal products. The neta, cut just before the nigiri part starts, are sublime. My all-time favorites are the kohada (コハダ, Gizzard Shad) and the aji (あじ, Horse Mackerel). Of course the various tuna cuts are delicious as well, but these two beat, for me, any o-toro. From the otsumami, the squid in a brown ginger sauce was outstanding and surprisingly a great pairing with the Selosse we drank at the time.... More

A strong, straight gaze comes through the curtain.The gaze of a craftsman.

When the TAISHO enters, the atmosphere changes drastically dramatically.
I like this atmosphere.
It spurs me on to expect more and more.


The sourness of the kabosu and the unique flavor of the mussel are sublimated into a fresh flavor in the mouth.

Return to the Master.
For me, Saito-san’s nigiri are the best combination of shari and neta. His ostumami are always perfectly cooked, very seasonal and full of flavors.
I have been coming more and more frequently and now decided to up this even more. I will not regret it.

Sushi Saito, February. Excellent visit. I generally don’t take nigiri pictures, but that uni deserved it.

Another wonderful meal at Saito. Simply perfect. No wishes left.

(Swipe for more pics) Some of the ecstatic moments Saito san had with this truly amazing panettone from @thisisfromroy , Saito san himself and everyone had a slice and the consensus was “oishii!” . The texture was lighter than most and not dense, but the flavor was rich and not cloying. Even the chocolate chips they used seemed to be better than most places. Not that I have had a lot of panettone but just by tasting, I think it was exceptional. They actually have a collaboration with... More

Stunning meal my first time sitting in front of Saito-san, after dining at his Hong Kong outpost several times. So many fireworks, many emotional dishes.

Full account of the meal is here: https://www.diarygrowingboy.com/2019/03/tokyo-hop-march-2019-saito-with-saito.html

Another stunning success of Saito-san. The calibration of the nigiri components are just unparalleled.
