ITs good. There just needs to be more fish in the sushi. Very thin bits of fish. I liked the combinations of flavors and the dishes available. Fried bowl dishes in combos with the sushi. The miso was very watery and it did not have enough taste. The rice was done correctly to a starchy stickiness. Just a few points... More

I was in Kristiansand for work, looking at Tripadvisor I decided to eat in this restaurant. Very beautiful place and good selection of dishes on the menu. Sushi and Sashimi were fantastic! The bill was high, but related to Norvegian prices it's OK.

Top quality sushi based on the fresh norwegian fish and seafood. Sushi simply don't get much better than this.

The food is wonderful. Not cheap, but worth it. I recommend going with a friend and choosing a sharing platter. No-one will go home hungry! And the toilets are amazing.

Easily the best sushi in Kristiansand, if not in Norway. As a vegetarian I would really recommend the veggie rolls as well. Decent selection of wine and beer and a service oriented staff.

Funky asian-fusion with lots of "special" maki rolls, great ambience and excellent service. We had a great evening and will be back next time in town!

Very cool atmosphere and the sushi was very good as well. Definitely pricey (even a bit by Norway standards), however, I think the atmosphere, service and food are worth the price.

Altogether, this was one of the best sushi dinners we´ve had anywhere. The work of the kitchen is genuinely inspired and creative while bringing out the best of each product. They offer signature combination plates, mostly for 2, which taste as good as they look. In addition to sushi, the combo plates also come with small grilled skewers which accompaniesi... More
