I went there for a student-deal (100kr for 14 pieces) and had a really nice meal. I especially enjoyed the kimchee sauce. Presentation is nice, staff is friendly and attentive.

Really good sushi and sashimi and had a nice seafood ramen. Trendy decor. Absolutely gutted for the place that the waitress we had was completely disinterested in taking our plates. Waited for an age to try and get her attention to try and get the bill. Had to walk up to the kitchen area/main till to ask 2 times to... More

Interesting Asian fusion dishes. The seaweed salad was super crisp and flavorful. California style sushi with loads of interesting things on offer. A bit on the expensive side, but also very memorable with a nice atmosphere.

The sushi is very tasty - my only complaint must be that they add so many flavours to each bite that when we bought a cobo de luxe for two persons the flavors sometimes even each other out. Putting together plates with lots of different sushis demands more that just say 10 bits of the same sushi because all flavors... More

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.

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.
