The sleek, minimalist surroundings of Hakkoku contrast starkly with the warm welcome you'll get from renowned sushi chef Hiroyuki Sato when you enter what is fast becoming a Tokyo institution. Expect sushi at its best from Sato's 32-piece nigiri set menu, kicked off with maguro tuna taken from the flavoursome base of the head. Other highlights include raw anago (salt water eel) and budou ebi (shrimp with caviar) and the sublime iwashi (sardine). Connoisseurs will notice that Sato's rice is on the salty side, making a perfect pairing with sake and fattier cuts of fish.
