Best sushis in town

So far the best Japanese restaurant in town! The owner/sushi-chef was one of the first sushi-chef in Geneva at Ushino (Japanese restaurant in Versoix), therefore has a particular know-how with sushis (of course) and customers in Geneva. Some would say it is too expensive, but compare with other... read more

Very fresh and tasty dishes, indeed high quality. As the prices are high, I would expect service to be faster and synchronised (8 people at the table, for 5 it took more than 15 min to get the main course, compared to the 3 who got their first). Not to mention the overall waiting - 2 course dinner with pre-ordered... More

Fantastic traditional Japanese restaurant. Get a booking and hold on to it, as this place is small and closes early We enjoyed the beef with broth served over it. Excellent place

Restaurant does not have much atmosphere but the food is fantastic! Simple and fresh, the way Japanese food should be! Get a selection of nigiri and sashimi , the grilled maquarel or black cod and you will not be disappointed! All this comes at a price,-it is quite expensive but well worth it in my opinion! Reservation is highly recommended... More

Excellent but today it was full and I was suggested to go to their sister concern at 10, Rue de Villereuse. NOT THE SAME quality. Quite disappointing besides service being SLOW.

The best Japanese restaurant in Geneva. Super good food, a bit pricey (not a surprise for Geneva), book few days in advance. It's always fully booked. they do take way in case you don't find a table.

Good quality sushi. Bit boring and corny setting - sushi is way over priced. I feel bad that this review isn't better. I was told it was best sushi in town but was disappointed with the freshness of the fish.
