Sophisticated.

Sophisticated. This is a nice restaurant to eat sushi with art. The place is all a bit Spartan deco but the food is aa piece of art and decoration itself. Good sushi, big portions.

The food on the asylum is great! The location and atmosphere are not the most cosy and romantic, but as a date with friends it is a cool and funky place! I recommend the sushi boxes they have for take away, quite reasonable and beautifully presented.

Eating out in Norway is pricey, to say the least. Sushi is WOW expensive! So when one decides to spend the money one hopes to get excellent sushi. We were recommended food asylum by coworkers so we gave it a try. We ordered a diverse selection of several different sushi rolls for 8 people and we all found that all... More

Very tasty food, great selection for me (not so keen on Fish) and my wife (fish-eating vegetarian). Nice selection of beers and drinks. Their platters look fantastic, but a bit too mixed for us, so we decided to go for the selection menu. Staples (edamame, gyoza) were delicious, I had some signature rolls made with chicken - a bit saucy,... More

Oh man, where do I begin. The sushi was incredible, so many different flavours and ingredients. Oh, and get the Miso soup while you're there as well. Wicked stuff. Cosy enviroment and pretty place. :)

According to my better half they serve the best sushi she has ever eaten! So that's for starters... I have to admit the sushi is as you should expect, truly freshly prepared with nice individual tastes On the desert menu..... Go for the tempura ice cream and/or the chocolate cake :-) Oh, did I mention the staff? Truly friendly always... More

Seriously one of the best sushi places I've ever been to. I had heard lots of positive things about the place and it didn't disappoint me and my friends.
