The hype about Sushi Ota is so widespread that I almost didn't think it could live up to its reputation.....but I was wrong.

Finally managed to get reservations late on a Wednesday evening. We originally thought if we made a reservation past 8pm there would be no one there or certainly not a restaurant full of people. To my surprise, as we arrived for our reservation people were still waiting in line and the restaurant was packed!!

The service was fantastic--the waitresses were fast but not overly fast as if they were rushing you and very attentive. I don't think my green tea or diet coke were more than half empty the entire night!

We ordered one of the sashimi combo platters, which was absolutely delicious. It had a great selection of everything and the uni was simply amazing. So good, I had to order another separate order of uni---unfortunately they were out of Uni Sashimi but then still had uni sushi so I just settled for that. In addition we ordered a bunch of different sushis, which were all equally delicious. Lastly, we ordered the seafood sunomono which was also incredibly yummy, and the seaweed salad was good--as it always is.

Basically, I could eat here for every meal if it wouldn't bankrupt me...but I will definitely be heading back sooner rather than later. If it weren't so difficult to get a reservation at a decent hour, I 'd be here at least once a week!
