During our stay in Tokyo, we were based in Asakusa, our favourite place in town! We were staying at Ryokan Kamogawa, just off Nakamise-dori. The area is full of shops and little restaurants where you can eat. And today, I am going to review our favourite sushi place: Sushi Nova.
It is a great casual sushi place in Shin Nakamise, just a 5 minute walk from the ryokan.
At Sushi Nova you can enjoy delicious sushi in a modern setting that includes a high-speed conveyor belt to deliver the sushi. The kids loved this!
There are tables for four and counter seats. Sushi orders are placed via touch panel and are delivered on the speedy conveyer belt, which stops right in front of you. There is also an English menu, so you know what you are ordering.
Look at the video we took… isn’t it fun??
The portions are generous and they specialise in tuna.
In fact, I have had some of the best tuna nigiri ever!
Look at this Tuna Nakaochi nigiri (made from the back of the tuna).
They also have delicious salmon nigiri.
Seared salmon nigiri.
Salmon nigiri with mayo and onions.
And all sorts of sushi platters.
They even have a burger nigiri!
A burger and foie gras nigiri.
And a delicious tonkatsu nigiri!
Another great characteristic is that at Sushi Nova they also serve other kinds of food. My girls, who are not fond of sushi, had fish and chips.
They even have dessert! We tried their chocolate cake (sorry, no picture), ice cream filled cream puffs…
And Japanese cheesecake.
In addition to 150 varieties of sushi, the restaurant also has a selection of beer, wine, and sake to complete the meal.
They also do take-away. This is a great option if there are no seats available and you are too tired to wait for a spot! Look at this tuna take-away platter!
I highly recommend this place, both for the food and the fun experience! Prices and portions are good, and t is a real family pleaser! Beware of the long queues, so get there early!
