Time Out says

Chef Takehiro Arakawa reinstates the idea that making sushi is an art form at his eight-seat counter in Hiroo’s Eat Play Work. The detail with which Arakawa uses to slice his fish is remarkable, and each piece practically glimmers as he places it onto carefully shaped vessels of vinegared rice. 

Despite the restaurant’s limited capacity and the quality of sushi on offer, the privilege of sitting at Arakawa’s counter comes at a surprisingly affordable price. At lunchtime, diners can order the ‘white’ omakase course, which comes with nine pieces of nigiri sushi and one maki roll for just ¥3,300. This leaves you with a bit of cash to spare for a glass or two of fine sake sourced from different regions of Japan. Alternatively, you can go for the 'Kuro' omakase course with 12 pieces of nigiri and miso soup for 5,800. 

You can make lunch and dinner reservations online or via telephone.
