We've had a splendid evening in a very surprising surroundings; the venue was hip and trendy with a combination of Nordic style and functionalism. The combination menu's were not only a treat for the eye but most of all for the tongue :-) Service was great and the Swiss invented percolator type coffee set-up a good finish of the evening....

The sushi is simply amazing. Fresh, great combinations of ingredience and nice presentation. The "good, better, best" wine selection gives you plenty of choice and they do have some very nice bottles including Cristal champagne if you want to go all out... Will be back for sure.

With a couple of young children, we don't have the opportunity to get out much but the last 4 times we have had a babysitter, there has been no discussion of going anywhere but Food Asylum. Atle and his team are very welcoming, provide great service, excellent alterations for my wife who has celiac, and the food is just sublime... More

This is definitely one for a re-visit next time we are in Kristiansand. Nice atmosphere and a clever menu with pictures for those who aren't fluent in Sushi. Really good food and nicely presented. So good that our taste buds became depressed when the well stocked plate was finally empty, but the stomachs begged for mercy. We came late on... More
