Tsukiji Sushi is a Japanese Restaurant in downtown Mill Valley that opened in July 2009. Haruo Komatsu is the Sushi Chef, he was the head sushi chef at Sushi Ran for many years. Tsukiji uses Koshihikari rice (a super-premium rice) and rice bran oil for their frying. The restaurant is named after the Tokyo Tsukiji fish market, the largest fish market in world. Most fish is sourced from this market. We decided to try this place because we’ve been to Sushi Ran so many times.

Tsukiji Sushi Mill Valley Interior Decor

Decor, Vibe – A old converted house with separate dining rooms, sushi bar, outdoor seating. Lots of wood paneling, brown red tones, Asian accents, pendant lighting, and local art. Quiet atmosphere with exotic music playing. Most middle aged locals with a couple families were dining when we went. Good amount of to go orders.

Picks:

Tsukiji Sushi Mill Valley Miso Black Cod

Miso Black Cod ($9) was a small plate unlike many other restaurants. Nice carmelized crust, juicy, tender, very sweet meat. Top notch.

Tsukiji Sushi Mill Valley Kanpachi Sushi

Kampachi Young Yellow Tail ($6.50) was on the Daily Special Menu. Very nice cut and very fresh. Clearly they excel at fresh raw fish.

Tsukiji Sushi Mill Valley Dragon Roll

Dragon Roll ($13.95) Unagi, Shrimp Tempura, cucumber, and avocado looked great and tasted perfect. Crunchy tempura’d shrimp, crunchy cucumbers, chewy unagi.

Tsukiji Sushi Mill Valley Chicken Teriyaki

Half Chicken Teriyaki ($16) with a decent miso soup and simple mixed green salad with creamy miso dressing. Easily the best chicken teriyaki we have had. A half sized portion of a chicken with crispy skin, perfectly balanced teriyaki sauce, and tender meat. Excellent large shitaki mushrooms.

Tsukiji Sushi Mill Valley Chicken Udon

Udon Chicken ($15) was expensive but full of chicken, vegetables, and thick udon noodles. A solid custom broth, not purely bonito extract. Much better than the ones we have had at Hotaru in San Mateo.

OK:
None

Pans:
None

Tsukiji Sushi had friendly service with the waiter check on us every so often. He was not as knowledgeable about their products as we would like to see. We did have to hail to get a couple items taken care of. Prices are reasonable for a high quality Japanese restaurant, making Tsukiji Sushi a good choice if you are nearby. This is clearly a cut above the average sushi restaurant. We still have to rank Sushi Ran higher due to its service, menu breadth, quality, and long term consistently excellent food.
Short Wine list with glasses from $8, bottles from $30.
