Sushi Arai is a restaurant with one Michelin star for its simple yet exquisite sushi.

Restaurant Details

Having opened in 2018, Sushi Arai earned one Michelin star in the Michelin Guide Niigata just two years later. In spite of this lofty accolade — or maybe because of it — the restaurant’s menu is simple, with only three types of omakase courses. The first is dedicated solely to nigiri sushi, while the next offers both sushi and a large variety of Japanese small plates. Both are highly popular, but both are outshone by the pairing course, which is the latter course menu with about 12 types of sake. For those who opt not to order the pairing course, the extensive selection of sake is also very much available to order from. Guests feeling overwhelmed by the sheer amount of options are welcome to ask Chef Arai for his recommendations — which he is only too happy to oblige. Guests seated at the counter are treated to Chef Arai's meticulous cooking movements, so well-rehearsed it has been likened to a performance. The counter has been carefully arranged to provide the best view regardless of seat, letting guests enjoy his knifework from any angle. Michelin Guide: 2018 - 1 Michelin Star
