“Ishin? no problem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

The sushi is fresh, the dons are good and affordable and the Cey-Ros really worth the try. I can strongly recommend Ishin for a good value tasty meal in Berlin. If you want to have a romantic dinner, do not go there.

“Great Cey Ro's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Many people are sitting in a big room and have lunch? Sounds nice? Not at all but don’t worry. The Ishin is a nice place in the “middle” of Berlin close to Friedrichstraße. The food is good and the price is low. As a starter choose some makis or nigiris before you order a Cey Ro with Salmon or a Don with beef for main course. Or even better – order everything at the same time and enjoy!

“Good selection of sushi and excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who lives in Berlin so we decided to visit it on a recent trip there. Upon entry, you get a bit turned off with the cafeteria-like decor, seating style and noise. However, the sushi selection is quite extensive for the average sushi aficionado. The quality is good but not outstanding and they have some good menu deals which make for very good value for money.

In my experience, there ae very few really good sushi restaurants anywhere in Germany and this one is good but not great. The service is also a bit lacking!

Would definitely go again when I'm next in Berlin.

“Great for a quick lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Pack'em'in and sell-it-cheap approach to sushi, and for a quick lunch it's great. Service is good, helped with plentiful green tea, and the prices will be very hard to beat. Yes, it lacks tablecloths, and feels like a school dining room at times, but we really enjoyed our visit which filled us with tasty sushi within a short space of time. The queue out the door was a sign of this place's success.
