Good restaurant with quick service (with 50% of the tables already ocupied) and a very good quality of sushi and sashimi!

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.

By far the best sushi place for miles. I had the signature dish and different sorts of maki. The Food was excellent, and service friendly. A new favorite place in Krsand

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

I recommend this place. Visit on a Saturday early evening. Not so many customers inside but busy enough because of take away service. The chefs were preparing for the night. I was served by 3 waiters all being very nice. Thanks guys and girls. I'm happy when I stumble into this kind of places.

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.
