  • Our Chefs & Ingredients

    All of the sushi chefs are Japanese and trained in Japan, and about 80% of the fish is imported directly from Japan, 4 times a week. We only use a unique blend of sushi rice imported directly from Japan, using the previous years Komai harvest to avoid the overly-high water content associated with fresh harvests of rice. The soy sauce is a house-made, sweetened and reduced Nikiri soy sauce that we infuse overnight with Mirin, kelp, and dried bonito shavings.

  • Interior

    The interior sits atop a bed of smooth river stones with a bamboo and wood-lined ceiling and red walls made of traditional paper imported from Japan. Its location, size, and atmosphere allow you to escape from the bustle of the city above ground.

The Specialty Dish of SUSHI AZABU

  • Ikura Nigiri topped with Quail Egg

    A traditional Ikura Nigiri is transformed to a mouthwatering sushi dish with the simple addition of the silky smooth quail egg yolk. As the Ikura pops in the mouth, the yolk enhances taste by adding more flavors to the total experience.
