“Beautiful Sushi made with the freshest fish ánd service with a smile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

A must do place in Tromsø. Modern as well as classic sushi styles available. We started with miso soup and wakame salad, both well done. Ordered two different sushi platters, and saw them being prepared (we were seated at the sushi bar) from beautiful pieces of fish. Other plates the staff made also looked like artworks.
Dessert (brownie, coconut ice cream) was a good portion and tasted very nice.
What completed a great dinner was the assertive and enthusiastic waitress. Even though the place was packed to the rafters, she served us timely and professionally. Unusual nowadays. Best sushi place we've found (ties closely with the sushi at Shis, Oporto, Portugal).

“Loved it! :D”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Today my bf and me went to try a new sushi bar after trying Lotus, which I liked a lot, but this one is even better! :)

Good things:

- The service: the waiter tried to find a table for us, even it was a lot of people at the restaurant and we hadnt reserved table either. He was very nice and easy-going with us all the time (and very nice looking too! ;P)

- The sushi was very good in my opinion! Very tasty, and we had a lot of salmon in the sushi maki :D

- The atmosphere is very nice and they serve the food in a very elegant/smart way.


Bad things:

- Maybe the tables were a bit too much closed to each other. But that's just the tables near to ours.

- I have heard that the fish is not cut in a correct way, but I have no idea about how to cut fish in Japanese cuisine, so it's all ok with me. Some also say that the amount of food is little, but I think it's ok. Maybe the miso soup could be a bit more substantial.



Would I recommend it? Yes! Absolutely! :

“Best sushi north of the Arctic Circle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Great sushi, beautifully prepared and presented. We had several rolls featuring king crab, the Midori Dragon was excellent. We didn't expect great sushi in Tromso, but after a few days here, we realize it is a great destination for foodies and Northern Light chasers.

“Impresses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

I make a point of testing Sushi Places when I travel and this one really is amongst the top 5. A good selection of standard dishes, good service and some very good and interesting special dishes. If you enjoy sushi, make a stop here while in Tromsø and at least test the specials.

Other than that, the Place looks Nice enough and the service is good

“Good but be prepared to wait a while”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Sushi is well-prepared and fresh. But as of any good food, be prepared to wait for at least 20 minutes.
