Sushi Monorail Restaurant – CHŪŌ

The restaurant is named after a special ward in the heart of Tokyo, called Chūō.  It’s a lively ward that seamlessly balances modernization and tradition. Chūō’s business district, Nihonbashi, is filled with skyscrapers and corporate powerhouses, while in other parts of the ward you can find hundreds of years old historical buildings.

This is where the concept of Europe’s first Sushi Monorail restaurant was born.

CHŪŌ is a heaven for sushi lovers. From Sashimi to their signature Dragon Roll to Hosomaki to Nigiri, everyone finds something that suits their taste.

CHŪŌ also serve starters, including Tempura and Gyoza (pork, chicken, prawn and veg) and Yakitori (meat or veg on a skewer) will become available soon.

The sushi plates typically contain 2-7 rolls, depending on your choice. The prices are amazing for the excellent quality sushi.

We ordered three plates: Ikura Gunkan, Dragon Roll, Sashimi Unagi and a drink and paid £19.

Once you’ve ordered, watch your food delivered by a mini Shinkansen train. When you finished with your meal, simply put your empty plates into the plate return slot next to your table. How cool is that!
