One of the best sushi experiments

Really good quality sushi. You can also try some sushi experiments like i.ex. sushi with meat, etc. Great original japan coffee. One little minus for prices. Not suitable.

Very good and varied menu card. Everything for both sushi and sticks lovers. Very generous portions. Excellent service. Sounds strange but the restrooms are worth a visit; all made of mirrored glass and with whale mating music :-)

I went to Food Asylum for the first time after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. And it was a very good experience. The sushi was great, the menu was very easy to understand with pictures of all the courses. And if we wanted something else that wasn't in the menu, it was no problem. And the service was excellent!

I have been to this restaurant several times, and I am positively surprised every time. It is always my first choice in Kristiansand. The sushi is very good - and so are the soups and sticks. Service is also great! The interior is cool - remember to visit the bathroom while you are there. They are an experience too.

This restaurant is a sushi experience. I have never had sushi this good. The deep fried sushi was to die for. Take your time to enjoy the meal, we spent hours there enjoying the food and talking. Great place to go to on a date or business lunch when you want to impress. Service is and atmosphere are still casual,... More
