Average Sushi

The reviews on TA say it all. - Not all you can eat (extra fees for certain dishes) - Not the best quality sushi, or presentation for that matter - Pricey drinks - Busy and noisy place - Cold staff, average service Keep looking. This is not the place you want to spend your evening.

My family and I had initially planned to come here for dinner but upon entering we were treated poorly. After five minutes of waiting to be seated, an elderly Asian man came to us. He asked whether we had a reservation or not, once finding out we did not have a reservation he rudely pointed us to sit. As if... More

The sushi selection is rather wide. It is claimed to be "all you can eat" but it is not. You have a fixed amount of dishes you can order. Overall they are more than enough and the price is well worth.

Sushi was indecent. Lack of care for a food that is supposed to be delicate was visible from the very beginning: rice almost falling, hand rolls disintegrating if they were not hold properly and deceiving taste. Rest of the dishes were either too sweet, either too hot or with no taste at all. We did not expect a sushi experience... More

I really liked the taste of the food and the fast and simple way of ordering by a tablet! Meat or fishes they were both delicious. Be aware the drinks are not included.

Just had dinner at Shabu Shabu Leiden. The quality of the food has improved, the ordering system with tablets works great and fast, but.... The noise level is unbelievable, almost impossible to have a conversation at your table. And.... When you order a bottle of wine, you will get a bottle of mineral water for free, but not if you...

You get what you pay for , but expect a drinks bill also and not the freshest or most eloquently served sushi - pretty boring and over filling - I really don't think they deserve their title as if they really were Shabu Shabu ,they should acknowledge and honor that fine Japanese cuisine
