I wonder how japan deals with the fukushima radiation contaminating their fish. It's why I'm scared to eat fish from japan now.
imagine eating this high O.o

When Simon puts that sushi in his mouth at 0:24, I got jealous
saito reis bi arada hamsiden yap.. tokyo usulunu bende yaparım trabzon usulu yapta ustamısın görelim... ayrıca balık dedigin elle yenir ne öyle cubuk falan nimeti mındar ettiniz mk
is not just good food, is the experience. You can feel the love and respect he feels for his fish. Well done, great video

Почему они так корчатся, так сложно оценивать без этих противных вздохов и взмахов руками? Можно лишь представить как стыдно было суши мастеру смотреть на их реакцию.

Japanese are Amazing ppl.

Comparing the street huckster David Blaine to this sushi master is an insult to you sushi chef.
Pat Brown
When eating all nigiri sushi, the piece should be inverted so that the fish hits your tongue first. The initial taste of the fish is then slightly later joined by the taste of the specially prepared rice. This is part of the elegant simplicity of nigiri sushi.
How about Jiro?
you know theres a reason why we heat up meat?
Thanks for the video guys. Your passion and sincerity transcends. Would really love to try the place out. I'm actually drafting my itinerary to go to Japan.

I just love Martina's feels. ❤️

Do they realise they're eating it wrong

Dear Simon and Martina, I'm wondering how the hell did secure a reservation? I've tried 10 plus times but failed. I heard they are a member only restaurant. I've always want to have sushi here. Hell, I've even heard people who eat at sushi saito EVERY WEEK!!! Just how did you get in this restaurant?

Enjoyed the trust aspect of fish seller and Saito. Video was too long with too much commentary by the narrators. Would have preferred just the facts being presented by Saito.
jon M
these 2 r ripppppedddd
vicky oktanov
imagine there is an indian with full beard and mustache making sushi like that
Yet these all will turn into poop
The rice is simple rice
Gigantic hands!
8:14 sushi is eaten by hand. the chop sticks are meant for the palate cleansing ginger.

damn.. you guys are so lucky you can eat there, looking at the chef passion and how he made the sushi is satisfying in it's own way, i suscribe your channel just from watching this video lol, hope some day i can go there :D
I hate watching people eat... I still hate watching people eat...
giovanni sarcone
So, After eat in this Sushi's restourant, if you want to eating in an other place?
mmm... I won't it
Popescu Rene
what about Jiro Ono?
Okay. For real though. I think that even Saito would not have exaggerated as much as these guys in the video. Even sushi has its limits. Not trashing on the food or art, just saying, your reactions were too much.
dave jentapa
I have never eaten sushi in my entire life. I want to eat now!!! thanks for the amazing video and sharing this to us.
