Description: Traditional authentic Japanese Edomae-sushi in Gangnam, Seoul by Japanese owner chef SATO from Tokyo, Japan. While at university in Tokyo, he worked in Tsukiji Fish Market, then he lived as a fisherman for 2 years in Hachijojima island to broaden his knowledge of fish. After that, he started working in Tokyo as a sushi chef and experienced in many countries. In 2017, he finally opened his own sushi restaurant ‘Sushi Kaisin’ in Seoul, Korea. He uses very good quality wild fish only for Omakase menu(Sashimi & Sushi) and can explain his omakase in Japanese, Korean and English.

Run by a Japanese-Korean married couple. They are very friendly and accommodating people, and do speak English relatively well. The food was simply put delicious; Omakase style sashimi and sushi, where you get to try both local Korean fish as well as imported Japanese of the highest quality and all the extra trimmings. Lost track of everything we got to try during the course of the evening, because it was a lot and almost everything very tasty. It is expensive, but only because the service and all of the ingredients are world class. Totally worth it!

A pleasant surprise discovering this Restuarant in the back lanes of Gangnam. It turned out to be an exceptional night of enlightening conversation and awesome food. Reminds one of a small Sushi Restuarant of the likes of Jiro Sushi, but with a much younger friendly Japanese chef who has a unique career starting first as a fisherman, then fishmonger at Tokyo’s Tsukiji fish market and finally an accomplished Sushi chef, who also knows the art of Ikejime (活け締め) or Ikijime (活き締め), a Japanese method of slaughtering fish to maintain the quality of its meat fresh for a much longer time and he buys his seafood personally from Tsukiji fish market.

Thanks for a delightful gastronomic experience. Kudos to the husband and wife team who runs this Restuarant, both of whom speaks very good English
