Maruya's Executive Chef


Master Sushi Chef Akifusa Tonai's philosophy on sushi is simple; prepare the fish in such a way to bring out its delicate yet subtle flavors.
For over forty years, Chef Tonai continues to adhere to traditional way of sushi preparation while blending and matching with the modern palate.
Chef Tonai remains tirelessly focused on providing a Japanese dining experience for each customer. His calm demeanor would often find oneself at ease and his big smile is disarming. As our palate may adjusts through the omakase, Chef Tonai will do his best to accommodate it.
