    So if you dont ask for the price of the fish, how do you pay for it ? How do you budget and account for costs.

    SO. I just scrolled through almost until the end of time of the comments on this video and read through almost every single one. Im not sure if you'll see this, Simon and Martina, but you're both incredibly strong to not let the haters get to you. Just reading these comments as a long time subscriber made me so frustrated and sad :"( But know that at the end of the day your NASTY family is always here, and I for one will love each and every single video you guys do. Your point of view in life is something special, and I freaking love this vid - its so artfully done. Thank you for being unapologetically yourselves, its people like you who bring something special to the lives of normal people like me :) - Carmen from Sydney Australia :D

    This was definately a shameful display. Even from just watching the video i felt ashamed. I highly respect the sushi master for keeping calm and not throwing you out. How the hell do you think it's okay to watch the sushi master doing his work in such a childish way? Furthermore you show no respect by dressing you like you did. Also why the hell do you just touch the other guest? You definately have no clue of japanese culture. Such a dishonorable behaviour.

    I think you can tell its different because of the environment and how the food is treated, the rice is perfect, the fish is perfect, everything is prepared in the greatest way possible and that's why its the best. whereas other sushi might be lacking in one of those areas. maybe the rice wasn't cooked just right, maybe the fish wasn't kept at just tge right temperature. I think there's a blatant difference in cheap sushi and expensive sushi, part of it being the cook and how he handles the Food, this man's passion flows like a river.

    Simon and Martina should probably address the elephant in the room, as much as I myself love sushi now and again they should talk about the disaster​ caused by sushi chefs all over and consumers to the fish population in the ocean. Growth rate of people eating it cannot be sustained with over fishing which is detrimental to our planet and ecosystem
