If you’re looking to have a variety of flavours served all at once, then the Nigiri Sushi set that comes with an assortment of fresh sushi on one plate is the perfect choice for you. Alternatively, you can opt for their Japanese set which comes with more traditional dishes like wagyu, sashimi, yakitori, tempura and deep-fried shrimp. Are we the only ones drooling over here? 

Similar to many eateries in Japan, it is much cheaper to dine during lunch at Asakusa Sushi Ken as their lunch sets range from JPY1,300 to JPY1,800. This would be a good time for anyone who’s on a tight budget to dine on a delicious meal without missing out on amazing quality and taste. The Unagi bowl comes highly recommended as you can indulge in the eel’s soft texture complemented by a natural sweetness flavour.
