Service: Friendly and attentive
Equipment: Great overall cleanliness. Beautiful washroom
Strong points: Top-class seafood. Rare Shizuoka sake!
Eating sushi in Shizuoka City is even an experience in Japan!
Chefs can choose to use only local seafood, only seafood from other shores, or a personal mixture of the two with equal success.
Atsu in Shizuoka City is of the third kind, which means that the chef, Atsu Mochizuki, does come up with some rarities!
Atsu serves no less than 16 local Shizuoka Sake, from rare to extremely rare with the consequent prices!
The four of us last night opted for a “makase/chef’s course.
The pictures will surely tell you enough about the quality!
