A great place to meet up with your friends

A reasonably good Menu selection, although not quite what we have come to expect from a Sushi Restaurant back in the UK. All the same, the food is fresh and well presented. Reasonably priced

We were within walking distance of Happy Sushi and ate there twice during our stay. It was definitely not the best sushi I've had, but it was among the best options at the mall area where we were. They had lots of options and decent prices. I'd go back if I was in that area of Sofia again.

Sofia has a large number of sushi restaurants, and Happy Sushi is probably somewhere on the middle of that list. Pros: Good service, interesting sushi creations. Cons: Most creations are heavy on the cream cheese and sweet sauces, the quinoa sushi was just plain bad. Recommendation: A good place to go for casual dining, but for fine dining, look elsewhere.

All the fish is frozen as has in fact nothing to do with Sushi..well if you never tasted the real Sushi you will not notice it.. The rice should be perfect but here its very dry, the amount of fish used is too small to be real Sushi, the girls are cute and smiling and dressed up in tight red... More

A bit bland as a food and most of the sushi recipes were adopted with Philadelphia spread - very strange choice for the ingredients.

I am a huge sushi lover and 'Happy Sushi' have never let me down. They have variety of sushi and their restaurants are located throughout the entire country so finding one is pretty easy. I find them as value for money because they truly are. A quality product at an okay price. Go try them out and let me know... More

I could say that the Happy Sushi restaurant located in the gardens of the former Kempinski Hotel (Marinela Hotel at present) is one of the loveliest outdoor dining places in Sofia. It is sheltered from traffic in a beautifully landscaped Japanese garden with a pond, swans, ducks and recently even peacocks! Chairs and 2-seat sofas are very comfy. The restaurant... More

Really excellent meal served in Happy Sushi.It's a small, intimate setting where you can see much of the preparation activity. Everything is fresh and taste awesome. Definitely worth your money.
