Expensive? Slightly...but the pieces of fish are larger than average, and I've had none fresher. The Unagi is so stunning you might think you sat on a live jelly-fish! Huge, mouth-watering slabs of eel, so good you'll never enjoy eel anywhere else again. Oh yeah, the line down the block testifies to it's popularity with the locals. But get there early for dinner, and it will be worth the 1hour + wait. (No Reseverations) Good Sake selection too.

Waiting in line for TOMOE is a humbling experience, because you know that once the maginificent sushi /sashimi plates arrive on your table, you will be tasting some of the freshest fish in the city. So while you wait, just imagine that you are waiting for the ships to come in with today's catch, and that you're the lucky one to be there to taste!

Tomoe has the freshest sushi for the price. Pretty standard sushi menu, but the fish is very fresh and inexpensive. Be ready to wait outside until they have a table, it's first-come-first-serve.

The freshest fish possible. Perfectly seasoned sushi rice and the correct proportion of fish to rice. What else is there?
