Sushi Saito, the pinnacle of Japanese fine dining
Fans of fine Japanese cuisine will be familiar with the name Sushi Saito, the three Michelin star Japanese restaurant that also got on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list and achieved first place on Japan’s highly acclaimed Japanese food review website, Tabelog.
With sushi enthusiasts all over the world clamoring to get a taste of the legendary Chef Takashi Saito’s creations, one does wonder what makes the restaurant so special.
This omakase-style restaurant is distinctive mainly for its premium ingredients and its one-of-a-kind sushi-making techniques. Sushi Saito uses only the best sushi rice and fish. Tuna here is a must-try, since the restaurant only uses tuna from Yamayuki, Japan’s top tuna supplier—that only sells to meticulously selected clients!
The restaurant’s special sushi preparation technique is inserting air in between each rice grain, which adds a depth of taste and results in a perfect rice-to-fish ratio.
Sushi Saito is reservations only, but diners should take note that the restaurant is extremely difficult to book due to its prestigious reputation. A useful tip—let the regulars make a reservation in your place!
