Fish melt-in-the-mouth! Very fresh! Tasty but the dishes were too simple. Simple rice with salmon - nothing special! Good Miso soup. 5 stars for the dumplings (or how they call them) I don't recommend the spinach but If you just want to enjoy fish its perfect and thats all. Semi service Extremely loud because of machines in the kitchen

The sushi tasted quite nice, the staff was very friendly to us. It is quite a bit outside of the touristic center, but that makes it less crowded which is pretty nice.

Went here for dinner and had to wait very long until we got served. Most of the waiters were unfriendly, didn't bring our food at the same time and didn't give back the change in the end when we paid the bill. The food was decent but the service really ruined the night.

I enjoyed this place except for its seating. It was pressed with diners and one has to share a long table with others reminding me of service in college restaurants. Other than that the sushi/sashimi/ngiri was real fresh and the price was really affordable.

This is one of a handful of branches of the always-busy Ishin restaurants. As I am not big into sushi but rather cooked Japanese food, I can only comment on the latter. After having been to the restaurant a dozen times or so I can testify the consistently good food. The free green tea served with the meal underscores the... More

Clean restaurant, good salmon sashimi, nice decoration of foods. If you look for an authentic Japanese so this is not a good choice, but the foods here is ok with reasonable price, not very crowded. I love Gari (sour sweet ginger) and usually ask for more, but in this restaurant dont need to do that because they put a big... More

We go to Ishin regularly. The sushi is fresh and they offer gluten free soy sauce on demand, so definitely a good choice for cealiacs.

This restaurant is part of a Japanese chain of low budget restaurants. It is conveniently located and good value but has a clinical, cafeteria-like atmosphere and uninterested staff. Everything here feels halfhearted and loveless. The food is fine but the entire experience just feels like a drag.

Price reasonable, fresh fish, clean, friendly staff, great quality! One of my friend lived in Japan and per my friend's opinion, their sushi has a good quality. It's not pricy, the portion is great!

They serve things at Ishin that you don't get at your run-of-the-mill Japanese restaurants. The sashimi is of excellent quality. But be forewarned, you don't get to have your own table with a personal-space bubble around it. You sit at communal tables with strangers; when you want more hot water for your green tea, you get up and get it... More
