What Happens

Whatever you catch is prepared to your specifications.
Whatever you catch will be prepared to your specifications.

You sit in a restaurant that looks like a big wooden ‘boat’, while surrounded by aquariums full of live fish. You’re handed a fishing rod and bait so, if you desire, you catch you own super, super, super fresh dinner.

After you reel ‘em in, consult the menu and point to exactly how you want ‘your catch‘ to be prepared.  Don’t worry, an English version of the illustrated menu is available.

There are numerous catch and eat restaurants in Tokyo. “Sit Fish”, “Zauo Shinjuku” (with four branches), Kotaku and more.

Reviews…

“Great experience”

Reviewed April 3, 2014

This was awesome. I loved nearly everything about this place. Catch your fish, then they prepare it and present it nicely for you. The downside is that many people could not get the fish to bite. Staff had to net the fish instead.

“Great fun, but hard to catch the fish.”

We spent 2 hours in here and it was such a laugh.. It is possible to catch the fish but takes patience. Fish came out as sashimi, deep fried, tempura style or sushi (pay a little extra for this) tip – order starters as you will be hungry if you just wait.

”Lots of fun! but, at what price ?

Had a great time catching our own meal with a fishing pole! Fishing pole was free and it was cheaper to catch the type of fish wanted than ordering from the menu. Prices of the fish you want to catch are posted on the wall behind you. If you get confused, the staff can help you out and they speak English.

Business… JPY to US     1   Yen   =   1¢   –   17May2014

First, you sit down at your table, order few drinks, and flip through the menu to order few starters, while you contemplate what fish you would like to “catch and eat”. Then you come to a page showing the sample price of fish. For instance, red seabream is 3,200 JPY (about $32.00) as ordered, but 2,380 JPY (about $24) as fished. Jack is 680 (about $7) JPY and so forth. The menu also tells you how much extra is required, for example, to make sushi out of fish you catch at 50 JPY piece (50 cents US).

This restaurant is “Zauo”.  Like all the other U-fish restaurants of Japan, your fish will be prepared any way you desire.
