Sushi
The name Azabu comes from a district in Tokyo, Japan, which began as a hub for merchants and local businesses. Now the city is home to embassies from many countries, giving the area an air of diversity, while preserving the history of local commerce with a modern, nostalgic touch. Plan Do See opened one of its first restaurants in the area, The Tokyo Restaurant, inside an historic building that used to be a bank. Soon after opening, the restaurant was full of a diverse clientele, bringing a lively vibe to the neighborhood. Plan Do See Founder Yutaka, walked by and noticed the restaurant swarming with international guests. It was this moment, in the city of Azabu, that he felt certain of the imminent success of expanding the business abroad.

    20 minutes to be seen by server, additional 15 minutes to be visited again, never received second requested drink. Tuna tartare was worse than any of the other times 3-4 we had been here. Only saving grace was the tuna and crispy rice and wagyu dumplings. Left before ordering more - who knows if it would have ever arrived anyway. We will not return.

    Great experience over all. There could have been greater communication around the intended coursing. And considering the size of the restaurant, it was surprising that our table was only visited by prompting our waiter’s presence. Even then he seemed preoccupied and flustered.

    food was terrible considering what we paid. waiter was not helpful and so slow. there were more waiters than clients and service was still incredibly slow. cocktails were ok at best, apps were basic and sushi was bad. no flavor. don’t substitute something we asked for by your suggestion without asking and then charge us for it. crab was not fresh. avoid.

    This is my first omakase experience and I would say it is definitely worth. We started with shrimp tempura, crispy on the outside and juicy in the inside. Came with a couple different dipping sauce/ salt. 7 course omakase was fresh and unreal. My favorite nigiri sushi was scallop and tuna belly. Finished the meal with basque cheesecake and red bean mochi. Such a great dining experience, I just wish we sat at the bar so we could witness the whole sushi making process

    Don’t ever order their wagyu, the meat is terrible, meat itself definitely not high grade, and they terribly cooked as well. Other food are fine but nothing really impressive, not good value at all

    Not recommended. The service was poor and the ambience wasn’t there. There were only two tables booked and the price was way too expensive for the food. Many Japanese restaurants offer the same quality for much better price.

    Very disappointed actually. Which is unfortunate, as I really wanted to like this place - my husband and I have been going to this location for sushi (and grill) as long as we've lived in Tribeca (15 years), and in all the incarnations, upstairs, downstairs, and with Chef Toshihide Terado before he left, and earlier this summer (2023) when he returned. The Den with Terado is a gem. I would return to The Den absolutely, but won't return to Sushi Azabu upstairs again... We stopped in here last minute to try the more economical and available omakase and not only were we disappointed by the quality of the sushi, but we were also stunned that the server offered us the sea urchin 'add-on' without disclosing the price which ended up being probably over $50/apiece for a very small amount of uni. Yes, we could have asked...but it's somewhat bad form to make a diner 'ask' when enjoying an evening out. The entire bill ended up costing about the same as downstairs when all was said and done.

    I think there was an issue with the Kitchen. I have been to Azabu multiple times and had a great experience. However, it took 1.5 hours for our food to come out. With the price we are paying for the meal would expect much more from this restaurant.

    I love Sushi Azabu. The omakase is always great and so is the uni tasting menu. The fish is as fresh and good as any sushi restaurant I have been to. My only complaint: since opening the upstairs version in NY Azabu's prices have soared, even on non-sushi items. $15 for a glass of beer - often less than a bottle?
