    I ate Sushi maybe 20 times in my life and it's okay, but it is really a mystery to me that people get orgasms because they eat raw fish on rice. I think most of those food orgasms on Youtube come from showmanship and delusion.

    I'm a sushi chef for about 5 years now, but there are some levels you won't be able to reach, no matter how much you practice.
    There are only a few who can make sushi at this level. Respect.

    this video just convinced my boyfriend to begin to try an array of sushi when he never has truly wanted to and was never really interested. thank you for this video! such an amazing chef who I one day hope and pray to be able to meet and enjoy his magic! Cooking is my forte, I knew the chef's seriousness by that glare he gave his work. We tend to stare down our masterpieces!! Thank you again! 😊

    I like that - unlike a lot of television chefs - he does not wear any rings, bands or watches - this is important that they do this to keep sanitation - you can wash your hands - but do you wash your rings, bands or watches? This was important to my boss when I worked at a sushi restaurant - (He would even shake my hand when I met him - talk about careful!)

    SO. I just scrolled through almost until the end of time of the comments on this video and read through almost every single one. Im not sure if you'll see this, Simon and Martina, but you're both incredibly strong to not let the haters get to you. Just reading these comments as a long time subscriber made me so frustrated and sad :"( But know that at the end of the day your NASTY family is always here, and I for one will love each and every single video you guys do. Your point of view in life is something special, and I freaking love this vid - its so artfully done. Thank you for being unapologetically yourselves, its people like you who bring something special to the lives of normal people like me :) - Carmen from Sydney Australia :D

    This was definately a shameful display. Even from just watching the video i felt ashamed. I highly respect the sushi master for keeping calm and not throwing you out. How the hell do you think it's okay to watch the sushi master doing his work in such a childish way? Furthermore you show no respect by dressing you like you did. Also why the hell do you just touch the other guest? You definately have no clue of japanese culture. Such a dishonorable behaviour.
