According to my better half they serve the best sushi she has ever eaten! So that's for starters... I have to admit the sushi is as you should expect, truly freshly prepared with nice individual tastes On the desert menu..... Go for the tempura ice cream and/or the chocolate cake :-) Oh, did I... read more

Seriously one of the best sushi places I've ever been to. I had heard lots of positive things about the place and it didn't disappoint me and my friends. Very good service, AMAZING sushi and the way the food was presented on the plate looked so good as well! If you like sushi and are visiting Kristiansand, this is a... More

Nice quality for very reasonable price. The design of the restaurant is very atmospheric :) Cool place to hang out with friends. Green tea lava cake was the highlight of the evening :)

Good sushi, but I would like more options to mix different types on the menu. I get tired of eating 5 pieces of the same thing, and would appreciate a mix-match.

I ordered tempara shrimp roll. When I got to hotel and opened it up, it was salmon roll. 3. I ordered a seafood... More

The food was very good and the service was very good as well. The sushi and other plates are nice but not overly fancy. The prices for the food was not bad for the area.

Welcome to the asylum! with its rough, concrete floor, reclaimed furniture and spartan interior you could realy belive you have entered an asylum. But that just ads to the experience. Here, the food is at stage and in focus. Pure sashimi, nigiri or elaborate signature maki rolls. All made with respect for the fresh produce. This is not a purist... More
