Same as many others.

I have had sushi in a number of different places including Japan. There is a sushi restaurant in Zweibrücken Germany of equal quality where you can eat as much as you like for around €15. Prices here are higher (yes I know it is Switzerland) but the food no better. I wanted to be wowed, but sadly... read more

Except for its sister restaurant, (also named Negishi) this is the worst sushi placein Basel. Because it`s so small, it always feels crowded and unconfortable. The service is horrible (slow and unfriendly). prices are very high. Avoid.

Choice of bento boxes, al a carte sushi and also a conveyor belt of sushi choices. Food is fresh and their is a reasonably good selection. Sushi rolls (maki and California) were not expertly cut so they looked a little messy although I had no complaints with the taste. We had to hunt down our waitress to pay and they... More

Maybe I was unlucky or came on a wrong day, but the service was terrible and very slow. The food was nothing more than average.

Great place for lunch – even if you are in a bit of a hurry. You can either have a selection bento box or pick and choose the food you want dish by dish. Reasonable price for Switzerland.

A typical restaurant Sushi chain, but quite solid. No big surprises, but you get nice sushi and rolls. They have a running Sushi or you can choose a la carte.

Perhaps I'm not very objective since I've been a couple of times to Japan (which has somehow jacked up my expectations) but in this case, I was quite skeptical. Of course, it is very rare to get fish freshly caught in Switzerland. However, even the rice tasted like rubber. So for the price (around 40CHF/person for 11 sushis, a miso... More
