One of Ginza's many tiny but excellent kappo restaurants, Chiei is hidden away in a basement just off Chuo-dori. Run by a jovial chef who crafts diverse Kansai-style cuisine mainly from seafood sourced from Kobe's Akashi and Tokyo's Tsukiji markets, Chiei also offers a wealth of delights for those partial to fine nihonshu. Another noteworthy point is the resident sushi chef, whose superb cuts make for a nice accompaniment to the sets of small dishes.
