What an amazing man. Because of this movie, my husband and I are planning to dine at his restaurant and his son's restaurant next year. We can't wait!

Jiro is a brilliant sushi genious and I want more than ever to visit his restaurant. What a riveting documentary about a life of hard work, dedication, persistence, and, more than anything else, passion. Jiro's years of work and attention to detail along with a well-trained staff make his ********* world's best.

For all the trite sayings that come to mind, the story feels exceptional thanks to the subject, a self-made perfectionist still pursuing culinary transcendence. Full Review

One of the film's best moments of deliciousness comes with the revelation that Yoshikazu, rather than his father, made the sushi that won the Michelin inspectors over; so much for working humbly in the old man's shadow. Full Review

An extraordinary morsel of a movie, and yes, you'll want sushi afterward. But it won't taste like Jiro's. Full Review
