I first wanted to say that this place is terrible so that it doesn't become more popular than it already is. But then I thought it would be slightly unfair. Because this place is just amazing. The service is better than what I've known in super high end (read very pricey) places. It's actually kind and generous. The food is... More

The food is good. No problem on that front. The service is good. No problem on that front. However, it is way way overpriced. There are no words to explain the interior design. It looks like a take-away place. I don't think that it is worth eating decent Japanese food at this price levels. There are much better options in... More

This is definitely the best sushi/sashimi restaurant in Geneva and among the best in Europe. Mr. Kakinuma is always behind the counter to prepare your sushis and sashimis. Mrs. Kakinuma and their son are serving you the food. The restaurant is small and very badly decorated. But, who cares, when you are having such a wonderful food.

This place is for people who can really appreciate good Japanese food. By Geneva standards (everything is expensive here), the prices are very reasonable - especially for lunch. The chirashi was great. By far one of the best Japanese restaurants in Geneva. Service was impeccable.

Sushi et. al is delicious. It's a family place, tiny and always full so you'd better book. By far the best Japanese restaurant in Geneva.

Our first night in Geneva and boy did we hit the jackpot with this fantastic restaurant. Absolutely bursting with customers, I had pre-booked the restaurant via my hotel 2 weeks in advance to be sure to get a table. The manageress was charming and helped us through the menu recommending the 'Fish Ball' special which we both opted to start... More

I have been only once in this restaurant and have only positive feedback. The service is amazing and food is fresh (dont think you can actually get fresher fish anywhere in Geneva). I def recommend going to this restaruant. Next time I am in Geneva - this is must place to go for dinner.
