Author Shylie Arzouan ( ago)
it seems like a spiritual experiece

Author Paul Shangkuan ( ago)
Heathens, the fish should directly touch the tongue so it warms the fish up. If you weren't video taping he would have kicked you out

Author GetaboardtheTrane ( ago)
watching this guy is like visual asmr, i just want to watch him serve sushi for an hour. his passion and concentration on his work is amazing

Author Carlo Dinglasan ( ago)
Here I am watching this while eating plain white bread and jam >_<

Author kng ( ago)
everything up to the point where those two actually appeared on screen was great. the lack of etiquette, behaving like pretentious hipster children and speaking as such took all class and dignity away from this otherwise beautiful video

Author Melinda Coria ( ago)
Mouth watering 😭

Author HipHippo ( ago)
I like the chef, the video production and the sushi...but I could headbutt those two annoying americans all day. 1 mil subscribers though +1

A craftsman, a master of his art. We are losing so many craftsman of the world. Please younger generation, stop all trying to be financiers. We're losing our craftsmen. Losing excellence.

Author Der Kugelfisch ( ago)
I'd actually consider this an art.

He looks so young

Jiro´s sushi is the best!! 3 star Michellin!

To the ones who made this video

I honestly love this beautifully edited video. I am Japanese but I didn't know about this Sushi restaurant, so I thank you two for telling me and the world about this wonderful place.
Last thing, I do not really care what people have to say about this video because people has different perspectives. but as a person who lives in Japan, I want you to know that talking while you still have something in your mouth is very rude in our culture. (sadly some or many of Japanese kids even don't know about this...)
Thank you again for making this video!

I thought Jiro Ono was the best sushi chef in Tokyo.

Author Night Cross ( ago)
Yukihira Souma will easily beats this guy.

Author Hifumi Takkimoto ( ago)
im planning on moving to japan in the next few years after i get myself a steady income with my career, and dude, you're making me with i had all the money in the world to go to that restaurant, just to try that sushi

Author calbastian ( ago)
I wish they'd put this in a tray and drop it in stealth at Costco and film who picks it up.

Author Daniel Anguaino ( ago)
Damn you ever had shushi before or what

Author August McLaren ( ago)
that Martina repeatedly doing the elbow down thingy with mouthful of sushi ruined it a bit but still, good work guys.

Author Bri Ng ( ago)
When eating sushi turns in to your mind exploding

Author Andrew Felix ( ago)
exaggerated reaction! very dramatic

Author dupont ( ago)
un arte comido por un nacote

Author The Case Master ( ago)
I don't like sushi but I love this video because I feel calm and happy from the energy from Saito the workers every one in the video ❤️

Author guibox3 ( ago)
Those knives he uses probably could shave the balls off of a housefly.

Author Daniel Breslin ( ago)

Author William Marcoux ( ago)
Everyone has such a distinct facial expression when eating sushi.

Author denisse chuco ( ago)
Is amazing

Author Cory Newsom ( ago)
Love the guy making the food. The people eating it are pretty damn dramatic, though.

Author Winter Mute ( ago)
Jiro still holds my heart as the greatest sushi chef in tokyo and the world.

Author Gianluca Rossi ( ago)
the girl have lovely cheek when chew

Author Ace Victory ( ago)
Who immediately thought of Saitama from One Punch Man when looking at saito lol

Author Guard 5.0 ( ago)
Ain't got nothin on Jiro!

Author Alejandro Sustaita ( ago)
Putos pretenciosos... el sushi de Saito es grandioso, pero por gente como estos pendejos se hace imposible para incluso a los locales.

Author Tronald Dump ( ago)
This girl in the video is hella hideous

Author 高橋優介 ( ago)
Obviously, dislikes from only South Korea and China lol.

Author Mary Green ( ago)
How many people have bookmarked this place because of how artful and life-changing this chef looks?

Author rsvpurgt ( ago)
Typical hipster fluff crap. Why do I get the feeling chef Saito could've handed them cheetos on rice, it would have blown their minds. I respect chef Saito very much and this video does not do him justice.

Author Hector Castro ( ago)
sushi most overated food in the world and that can kill u and u don't even know it

Author Harambe ( ago)
Japanese have such a beautiful nation and such rich and deep culture. The respect and trust between them is amazing. im so fascinated by it. one day ill save up enough money to go visit Japan.

Author GIGABTYE ( ago)
I'm not a big fan of sushi but this made me feel like eating some now.

Author Josh Araujo ( ago)
To the haters - show me your Michelin Stars, if not go back to your basement

Author Nox ( ago)
I doubt continuously staring into the camera and shaking your head must've confused the other customers as well as the chef. Seems unnecessary

Author Ben Alves ( ago)
Just came
From the fish market and had to rewatch this again. But yeah I think the scoring for this video
Was a little
Too much

Author Mehdi -98 ( ago)
but incredible editing though

I don't get it whats here to dislike? I love it!

Author Racc Ceddeño ( ago)

Author uruglytoo ( ago)
i miss the days when sushi was with all the hype, prices have shot through the roof..

Author RDC CS ( ago)
was this a comedy show?

Author Simulator Mortalis ( ago)
For those who still dont understand how this works: anyone can kick a ball, but only those who manipulate and shoot with consistency and precision get paid millions of dollars each year.

Author Jack Stevens ( ago)
Way over the top with the adjectives, you really sound corny and make this video so cheesy, it's just sushi seriously wtf is wrong with you guys?

Author chubaka stone ( ago)
i just watched the video i can almost taste all the glory and freshness of the sushi ...wanna open a restaurant in u.s

Author kc k ( ago)

Author vamosnippon ( ago)
People need to realize that Japanese food is different from rest of the world. Rest of the world adds flavor to the ingredients; In any Japanese dish, the concept is to bring out the best flavors of the ingredients. It's sad that 90% of Americans think their sushi rolls are authentic Japanese food.

Once you try world class sushi, theres no going back.

Author Haschte keine Ahnung ( ago)
man kanns auch echt übertreiben mit dem Genuss....

Author William Steisslinger ( ago)
Japan food tastes like nuffin. Overrated af

Author Kairi ( ago)
This is art, this is beautiful. This is my favorite video you've made. This really shows that eating food together can be a true experience, rather, something you do so casually.

Thank you for this. :)

Author Crazycuban561 ( ago)
Sushi saito just made it on my bucket list

Author Jackson ( ago)
He is such a modest chef, lives up to his name of sushi god. He gives credit to people around him not just taking all the fame but acknowledges that without the others around his life he is unable to achieve this level of sushi. Thumbs up for Saito

Author VinnyFamilyVlogs170 ( ago)
These two douchebags should be smacked in the face!

Author Furkancan Türksoy ( ago)
wow.. this video is so good that i couldn't even bring myself to care about those sushies. almost as if it's like a short movie

Author stev hayden ( ago)

Author Сергей Кузин ( ago)
Tell me, please, when he makes sushi, what does sauce he lubricate at the end (at 15:30)?

Author GodLike Fin ( ago)
they are probably going to buy a big Mac after this

Author BurnoutStef ( ago)

Author Anna May ( ago)
So awesome, you made a non sushi eater crave sushi, never had it. I'll be 22 tomorrow!

Author Sydney D. Levy Jr. ( ago)
One of the best review/insight YouTube videos I have ever seen. You two have a new subscriber. I agree with everyone else who was mesmerized by the production quality. It's reminiscent of 'Chef's Table' on Netflix. Kudos!

Author viola bardach ( ago)
I have a list of questions:
where in tokyo was it
did you speak english with the chef
how does it work do you come and he gives you a set of things or do you choose the course
how much did you pay?
what is the name of the resraurant
hope you can answer it all!

Author Jakob Chase ( ago)
I really enjoyed the video until they began eating the sushi, honestly made me cringe. edit out your small eating scenes and maybe ill give you guys a like

Author riptorn ( ago)
Chinese and Thai food tastes better hands down, Sushi is over rated due to the fact that Japan is a better country overall.

Author Onayssah Hassan ( ago)

Author Amj ( ago)
i love how people can be so passionate about something and i can see that in the Chefs eyes, it's like he's performing art
