Went with a few friends and the food Ok and service was good. The starters freshly made and tasty. Main course was OK but not great. Price was fine. Will go again which is always a good sign

OK, it was busy. But the young guy serving us would have had far less work to do had he spent a few more seconds waiting and listening to his customers! He was impatient, rude, ignorant and unattentive. Until they get some decent customer focussed staff I will not return here! Which is a pity because the food and prices... More

This restaurant has great sushi! Fish, vegetables and rice are fresh. It tastes great. The prices go from 4€ up to aprox 12 € for sushi rolls. They offer also menu dishes. Friends and relatives order them, but I still prefer sushi. The atmosphere is very nice, with a some Asian deco. Usually very crowed, better to make a reservation... More

Hard place to get a seat without reservation - best Japanese restaurant in Erlangen and definitely worth a visit if you are in Erlangen. There are a few places where sushi is better though - especially in Japan :D Due to its layout it can get quite noisy - there isn't much privacy to any of the tables.

I'm not so sure why this restaurant has quite a high ranking here. The food isn't at all bad, but it isn't special either. I like the gyoza, but it was a tad oily. The makis are not bad, but nothing to rave about. It's just ok. The service is excellent though. Very friendly staff. Just one side note, I... More

Yes it's a busy restaurant, but there is a reason for its popularity. I find the ingredients fresh, service always fast with good follow ups, and polite. The presentation of the food is stunning, and the portions are plentiful. The salmon in teriyaki sauce was great and I enjoyed the crab sushi so much I had to take friends back... More

I think it is the best Sushi in Erlangen, but not great. I seem to have a hard time finding the right menu items as the rolls and such are a bit different than wheat i find in many other places i have visited globally. I also feel it is a bit on the pricey side for dinner considering the... More

Seems to be the coolest restaurant in Erlangen, but the quality of the food needs to be improved. I ordered tempura and it was cooked with an excessive amount of oil, the asparagus were undercooked,..they didn't even mind of cutting the vegetables! Beside that, the place is really nice. I would recommend it for having a beer, but not for... More

Great sushi selection, and not too expensive. I was excited to see seaweed salad on the menu. Located a little out of the way, though.
