We at Edomae truly believe in quality over quantity. Serving Sushi the traditional Edo way will give you a remarkable yet different point of view and a new understanding of “how to eat sushi”.
By focusing your senses into one single serving, you will be able to reach the peak of the umami taste. Serving multiple single set-dishes, which vary in seasonal taste, is called Edomae Style Omakase.
Using various traditional techniques on how to bring out the hidden flavors in each fish and other ingredients is why Edomae Sushi clearly stands out from the rest.
Omakase means Chef’s choice and it’s believed to be a very honest form of eating since there are no walls between the customer and the Itamae (chef).
Our Team and Head Sushi Chef Yusuke Sasaki is inviting you into a new yet traditional way of dining and we hope to share this unique experience with you.

Already in his early years, Chef Sasaki came across the traditionel Japanese cuisine. His grandmother who set high standarts on organic products, had a big influence on him. Influences that accompanied him along his path in life.
After he finished the film school of Shohei Imamura in Tokyo, it was then that he decided to travel around Japan and to gain as much experince in Japan’s traditional cuisine as he could.
In 2008 he moved to Germany with his Family and worked at the known Yabase Restaurant in Düsseldorf. It was in 2010 when he moved to Geneva and started working at Sansui and soon after moved to Zurich.
The name „Edomae“ carries a lot of responsibility in his view. The almost 40 years old Itamae is facing his new challenge with a great deal of focus. His goal ist to bring out the delicate flavors in each fish and other ingredients by using traditional techniques that have been used during the edo time.
Decisive for this traditional concept are not the Japanese ingredients, but good fish from species-appropriate breeding and keeping, which are prepared in the traditional way.
What does Omakase mean?Omakase translates to „I leave it to the chef“ which, in a sense means, that the Itamae creates a menu that he thinks is suited best to our customers taste. He remembers their preferences and is seasonally oriented.
What is the menu like?Our Edomae Omakase is a harmonious sequence of traditional dishes. The focus is on classic nigiri sushi and kaiseki dishes. The price per person is Fr. 120.- and includes tea at the end.
Where do you get your ingredients and fish from?Preferably from our neighboring countries. We put a lot of emphasis on food waste. As we only prepare the menu according to the number of guests we are able to keep our fish waste very low. We work closely with suppliers who value sustainable agriculture and food processing. Our fish comes from MSC and ASC certified suppliers.
How many people can join one seating?A maximum of 8 people can participate in one Omakase seating.
How long does a seating take?One seating at the Omakase bar lasts about one and a half hours . Afterwords our guests may relax and finish their tea and dessert.

How far in advance should I book? As our Omakase is a „reservation only“ concept, you should book your seat at least 1 week in advance for Mon – Thu seatings and 2-3 weeks in advance for Fri – Sat seatings. There are no walk-ins accepted, as we prepare accordingly to the number of guests that placed a reservation.
What ist he cancellation policy?As we prepare our Omakase menu on a daily base for each seating and for the respective number of guests, we ask our guests to cancel at least 48 hours in advance.
