Sukiyabashi Jiro (すきやばし次郎 Sukiyabashi Jirō?) is a Michelin Guide 3-star[1] sushi restaurant in Ginza, Chūō, Tokyo, Japan. It is owned and operated by sushi master Jiro Ono.[2] A two-star restaurant is located at Roppongi Hills in Minato, Tokyo.[3][4]

Sukiyabashi Jiro was the subject of David Gelb's documentary film Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011).[5] French chef Joël Robuchon says that the restaurant is one of his favorites in the world, and that it taught him that sushi is an art.[6]

There was a fire at the restaurant on the morning of Jun 24, 2013. Firefighters said that a sushi chef had been using straw to smoke bonito, and that the straw most likely ignited after he returned it to the storeroom. The fire took about an hour to extinguish. There were no injuries.[7]
