김수사 – Kim Soosa (Gangnam Gu – Sinsa Dong)
This Japanese sushi establishment has been around since 1986. It’s an institution. The sushi counter only has 6 seats. This place has been in the same location since 1986. I am sure that they have renovated the restaurant but the focus here is more table and room service than counter. When I tried to make reservations, they tried to push me to a private room. I said that I wanted to sit at the sushi bar / counter or kaunta seki as they say in Japanese
You are not coming here for the ambience. You come here for the food and only food. Since the counter is so tight and small, I wouldn’t recommend coming here for counter omakase service with more than 3 people.
Eating the same KRW 90,000 sashimi omakase menu in the room vs. sushi counter is a night and day experience. No question. Eat at the kaunta seki.
