Found this little sushibar by sheer coincidence. They had a friendly staff and really nice and properly made sushi sets.

Despite being quite small Ichiban Aikatalo offers a nice place to sit down and enjoy a good sushi meal. Ichiban set is worth its price and the wakame salad is apparently made at the place (often it's from a freezer).

This restaurant is usually good, but sometimes average. With these prices, the food should be good every time. The staff is very young and a bit unattentive. The customers seemed to disturb their lively chit-chat and I was not really interested to hear facts about their private lives..

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.
