Sushi set
Sushi set / 8pieces ¥2,200 (+tax)
This is called “sushi set” which is one of the popular sushi sets in this restaurant. There are in total 8 pieces of sushi in the box such as tuna, salmon, white fish, shrimp and so on. All of the sushi are very flavorful and you will surely enjoy the different kinds of fish and their delicious tastes. Please put some soy sauce when you eat them.

Sashimi set
Sashimi set / 8pieces ¥1,500 (+tax)
If you would like to try some “sashimi”, the sliced raw fish, this is what we recommend! You may have several sliced raw fish such as tuna, salmon, white fish and so on. They are all fresh and delicious, but our favorite is salmon as they have mild and creamy taste. We also suggest that you eat sashimi with sliced ginger prepared in vinegar called “Gari” as they make the taste fresher. It is interesting that the sashimi will be served directly on the table from the chef’s side.
3Let's Try!
Sushi (from single piece)
Sushi (from single piece) / 1pieces ¥50 - ¥600
If you still have a room for something more even after having sushi set, you can order just one sushi from the menu. There are many kinds of sushi such as salmon, shrimp, red-snapper and more. The prices vary depending on the kind of sushi you would order. This time, we ordered salmon and it is very fresh and has a mild taste. Please choose what you would like to try!
4Let's Try!
Big rolled Sushi (Futomaki)
Big rolled Sushi (Futomaki) / ¥800
This is one of the signature dish in Kinbe-zushi! It may be fun to watch over your counter how the sushi chef makes this sushi roll! Inside of this sushi roll, there are eel, crab, egg, pickles, some vegetables with mayonnaise. They are incredibly delicious and you may enjoy the crispy texture of fresh vegetable. We highly recommend that you order this with your sushi set!
