All-You-Can-Eat Sushi With Gourmet Toppings at Hina Sushi Is One of Shinjuku’s Most Delicious Deals!

At a great price of around 4,000 to 5,000 JPY per person, “Hina Sushi” is a fantastic place to head to for delicious sushi at a friendly price in Shinjuku.

While you can order sets of sushi or seafood bowls, many visitors come for the all-you-can-eat sushi experience, making Hina Sushi a popular spot among both Japanese and overseas tourists.

Umami bites writer Steven paid the restaurant a visit to try out their all-you-can-eat sushi course and most popular dishes. Experiencing it all in person, he quickly found out why Hina Sushi is so sought-after.

60 types of sushi for all-you-can-eat!

Hina Sushi offers an all-you-can-eat course with about 60 types of sushi.

Hina Sushi’s wide variety of sushi options, from classic choices like lean tuna to “broiled” (seared) sushi and monthly specials featuring seasonal fish, is one of the restaurant’s key attractions.

Obviously you can get sushi overseas, but you don’t see as many seared types as you do at Hina Sushi.
Being able to choose from toppings like their horse mackerel, Japanese Flying Squid, and pickled plum & shiso leaves is a rare treat.

The most popular items at the restaurant include nigiri sushi like medium fatty tuna, salmon, as well as gunkan rolls of salmon roe and uni sea urchin.

Not to be overlooked are their blackboard specials, which change from time to time.

For this visit, Steven ordered the “Seafood Yuzu Miso Gunkan Roll,” topped with seared yuzu miso.

As of October 2023, Hina Sushi has five locations in Tokyo, and the blackboard menu varies from one location to another, giving each restaurant its unique character. Since the blackboard menu changes irregularly, be sure to check it out when you visit.

When asked about the most popular menu items among travelers from abroad, salmon nigiri, avocado rolls, and the restaurant’s Salmon Poke Gunkan Roll were at the top.

If you can’t decide what to order from the 60 types of sushi, those three may be a good starting point!

Steven particularly recommends the Lean Tuna, Young Yellowtail, Conger Eel, Tuna Tartare, and Seasonal Bonito to visitors from abroad, adding that “it’s all you can eat, so it’s a good chance to try all kinds of new sushi.”

You don’t just have to stick to your favorites, you can try on sushi types you’ve never had before. I particularly loved the Maguro (tuna) Tartare, Lean Tuna, and Conger Eel. Each one was fresh and delicious!

At Hina Sushi, the chefs invest time and effort not only to the sushi toppings, but the rice used as well.

They prepare the rice by cooking it slightly firmer and then adding vinegar. This results in a delicate texture where the vinegared rice gently dissolves in your mouth.

This rice maintains its softness over time, making it easy to enjoy countless pieces of sushi.

It’s super easy to order! A simple and intuitive ordering system

Hina Sushi’s all-you-can-eat course comes with a serving of chawan-mushi (steamed savory egg pudding) and one order of their monthly special sushi.

The Monthly Special is only offered once and cannot be ordered again. However, you can order as many pieces as you like from the other seasonal limited menus. Just write down the sushi you want to eat and the quantity on the order sheet and hand it to the staff.

The order forms are available in both English and Chinese

Steven

The order sheets had sushi menus in English and Chinese, which make ordering easy on tourists from abroad. You just write down how many pieces of each sushi you want next to the menu item, and it’s a straightforward system. It’s similar to some restaurants abroad, so it’s easy for foreign customers to understand.

You can order up to 20 pieces per person in one go. If you want to eat more, you’ll need to fill out the order sheet again using the pen provided at your table.

The availability of order sheets with instructions is a thoughtful gesture for foreign visitors who might not understand Japanese.
