I loved the: 1. fresh salmon sushi 2. economically priced lunch deal (10.90 euros for 10 pieces) 3. speedy service According to Kamppi shopping centre's website, this restaurant is "a Japanese run family restaurant [sic]"; it turned out to be accurate and hence, the food was pretty decent.

Good place to go for a quick lunch. Nothing too special but an easy way to eat nice, fresh sushi. Atmosphere isn't the best though. Lunch is affordable, otherwise a bit overpriced.

The sushi is tasty, every single time. Since visiting Umeshu last week, Ichiban has met a serious rival in my books...

Which means that the portions are small and expensive. But hey, they could also be little bit off with junky rice.

A nice and small sushi place in Kamppi. Somewhat better than the average place.

Had food poisoning after eating there.The food was not fresh.The sushi was served almost instantly after the order. Did not pay attention to that, at the time, but I guess it was lying around for a while.

My favorite sushi place in the whole world. Sushi is awesome, the place unfortunately is too small. They change stuff in a set if you are allergic to something. The Kamppi one is definitely inferior to this in terms of taste & service
