The food was really good (nicely presented, tasty, huge portions) but the waiters were pretty impatient and not keen to answer questions. It's expensive if you don't have a reduction.

The sushi is really good but the service is absolutely awful. Do not eat here if you are not willing to wait hours.

I love sushi and have been to several in Geneva, but Kirin is tops by far. They offer a wide variety and it's super fresh, just melt-in-your-mouth yummy. Prices are normal by Geneva standards (this means expensive by most other standards) but Kirin also offers a rather well-priced lunch menu with several options. I haven't been there for dinner so...

My wife and I went last night. Nothing extraordinary, but the sushi was better-than-acceptable and the prices as well. I had a crab/apple salad (12 francs) and a large 18-piece sushi assortment (32 chf) and left full and happy. We were lucky to find a place on the terrace, (most places were reserved). So, if you go on the weekend,... More

Went there twice already within 4 month. It is situated in the hot district of Geneva but this place even though look singular offers great plates!

I got to know Kirin Restaurant just by chance walking around the zone. However, it was quite a pleasant surprise. The food was very good, carefully prepared, and with top quality ingredients. I will certainly return to try out more options of the menu. The service, however, needs improvement. Not very professional, and be prepared to wait: despite being a... More

Arriving after a long day at work we just wanted to have a quick dinner - our order took more than 25 min to arrive, which is too long for a couple if simple sushis. The owner offered free fish skewers which was a nice touch - but we were still hungry! Food overall was good - but not worth... More

So I went today with an ex collage from an investment bank. It was a business lunch and we both love sushi, hoping we would be inpressed. His sushi was average. I had spicy tuna california maki roles and were nice. The hot plate of beet crustiant was strangely sour, and should be like soya sauce with Teriaki sweet. I... More

A small authentic Japanese restaurant with a good selection of foods, from sushis to noodle dishes to tempura. Not overly expensive. The sake selection is disappointing though.

I went there on a Friday night for an anniversary sushi fest and I have to say that the sushi was great. I ordered the number 7 and, though I was disappointed to find that some of the big roles included cooked tuna (WHY!!), it was well made fresh and tasty. The miso soup and seaweed salad were also great.... More
