“Great sushi, medium ambiance, bad personnel.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Went here with 2 friends. They had a lot of options (as do most sushi places in Berlin) and we couldn't choose so we ordered the 'sushi plate' for 4 persons, it was 40 euro. You really get a lot, we couldn't finish all of it (but we were with 3, not 4 persons!). The restaurant looks clean, but it doesn't have 'character', it feels like almost a fast food sushi place. Later, 2 other friends arrived (just for drinks) and we asked if we could add a table to ours. It wasn't busy at all, but the waitress had to sigh really deep before she helped us move the table. She wasn't very nice or helpful.
The sushi plate was a 'surprise'; you just got what the chef gave you. I actually loved everything on it except for 1 (of the 10+) of the variations.

“Just great sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

Great quality sushi, very fresh, excellent menu, sharp service, decent prices. I would eat here all the time if I lived in Berlin. So much so that I ate the sushi platter for four by myself! Still thinking about it.....
