We ordered the ¥6,300 Jun omakase set. It comes with 17 different types of sushi and rolls. There are snow crab, uni, scallop, chutoro, herring, snapper, squid, salmon roe, cod roe and razor clams, etc. All very nice and aged beautifully. We will definitely visit...More

We booked one month in advance for dinner but can only get lunch seating at counter. The décor and seating was comfortable and airy for this Michelin star restaurant. The chef was friendly and speaks some English. During lunch one can order sushi by piece...More

Fresh fish and shellfish sushi served with a great environment. Local Otaru beer was great. Every piece was exceptional.

Great expectations since it was recommended by a very reliable friend. While the fish was alright the rice was very disappointing. Cold and hard as if it was overnight rice. I suspect this was made by the kitchen and no QC was done. Maybe restaurant...More

Visited Isezushi with an advanced booking of a few months . Matching price and quality, premium sushi was served and priced reasonably. Would have gone there again if booking is not a problem

This Sushi restaurant offers fine Sushi course at affordable price. This place was listed on micheline restaurant guide book a few years ago. very popular Sushi place in Otaru. You must make reservation before you come to Otaru. 北海道に詳しい友人のお勧めで1ヶ月前に事前に予約して伺いました。べビ連れだったので半個室にお席をご用意頂きました。子連れでカウンターはやっぱり難しいですが、高品質な本物の寿司店が子どもOKな時点で有り難いです。しっかりと仕事をしたネタを3皿に分けて魚→貝と甲殻類→軍艦巻きとストーリー仕立てで出して頂けて美味しいお鮨を堪能できました。

When I did research for my trip to Otaru, I found out Isezushi was (and I guess still is) the most highly rated sushiya there at the authoritative foodie website Tabelog. I very much looked forward to my dinner there and my expectations were met....More

Being a Michelin 2 star restaurant with several positive reviews stacked in its favour, the food at Isezushi was completely disappointing and not worth the hype. The fish on the sushi was poorly cut and incredibly dry! The seaweed was also chewy, making it obvious...More

Get there at around 4:00pm for some afternoon eating. The resturant is not open until 5:00 pm, make a reservstion for 5 because latet hours were fully booked. Enjoyed an early dinner there. Good food, fish are fresh, I enjoy very much!

You can't make a reservation online. If you'd like to book, you have to make a call. I'm not sure whether there is a staff who can speak English or not. It could be hard to make a reservation for dinner on weekend so you... More

I am not sure about this. But looking at their details in serving customer, they should have a high chair for toddlers
