About the Movie

JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is the story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious three-star Michelin Guide rating, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar.

Customer Reviews


My wife and I drove 150 miles round trip to see this movie. An absolute joy and feast for the eyes. Only problem was that we could not eat sushi for several weeks thereafter. Jiro's sushi was just too strong in our memory to violate with any run of the mill variant. This is a great film!

The Master at Work

A great movie/documentary serving as the testament of perfection. This movie can provide the motivation to achieve greatness. Unfortunately, I do not think I will ever have the chance to sample Jiro's sushi; especially when it starts at 30,000 yen.

Visual feast and a pristine narrative

The whole movie is an elegant photograph. Each frame feels carefully architected which adds to the movies elegance. The storyline is very reflective on Jiro's life, despite how tacit the man appears. It's really a one of a kind in its artful delivery and very accessible narrative. Beautiful is a an apt adjective here!
