Tonight: Saito's or Ike for Sushi

Love Ike when Ike is the chef...
HAve only gone to Saito's once...keep forgetting about it

Either is convenient

  1. Never been to Saito.

    Never been disappointed by Ike.

    I guess it's pretty obvious what my choice would be ...

        1. Ike is good. But has anyone else noticed that the portion sizes fluctuate somewhat?

            I just went for the first time two weeks ago and noticed the enormous portions (which pleased me greatly). Perhaps it was a fluke but I had a feeling Ike wanted us to come back.

          2. IMHO, Ike is overrated by many on this board. I can walk there from home, but I usually head over the hill to Tama. But to answer your question, Saitos, while expensive, is always exceptional.

            Just figured someone had to defend Saito.

              I guess I should try Saito's someday as I work about two minutes by walk from there..... But Azami just kills it everytime I go there, and there's never any shenanigans as to whether I know the chef or sumsuch to get treated well (as I have heard is the case at Saito's.)

                I finally got to try Saito's and was favorably impressed. A couple nit-picks but none related to the food. Chef is very nice, and the waitress/hostess is super friendly and really knows the gig.

                Everything was quite good, and they have GREAT tamago!!

                Prices seemed about average to me.
