The location is a bit tricky to find without internet leading you. But once you've found it, its cool. Outdoor seating area (smoking) and large indoor area (sushi bar and tables). Menu is great in variety. Good price for freshness. Waitress are very friendly! Speak english, german, japanese and thai! Get crowded during lunch hours. Can pick up a box... More

I discovered this Japanese restaurant today. I like the way the interior terrasse is organised. The sushi was very good. The staff is very friendly.

Nice place if you want to eat good sushi and escape from the street crowd. Restaurant is hidden within elegant shopping center, but easy accessible. We enjoyed our meal and ambiance of the place!

Very busy place over lunchtime. Got a seat at the bar observing the chefs. Well - not quite an art how they produced their dishes. I have seen many japanese chefs that take their job much more serious and you see and taste that. The set meal A was ok. Miso very tasty, salad standard and the sushi/nigiri quickly preped... More

Japigo has been one of my favorite restaurants in Berne over the years. The food is always good and although I don't eat fish my husband does and he's always happy with his meals, reason why we always go back. Try the Teriyaki chicken or the beef (can't remember their japanese names), my favorites! We've always been correctly treated and... More

The place is a bit hidden at the end of one of the numerous passages of Bern's arcades (though during the summer, a take-away sushi cart in front gives an additional hint). Modern and efficient setup, but expect no oriental charm. The menu is quite efficient, concentrating on essential basics. The 23 CHF lunch menu is relatively good value (for... More

Japigo is a popular and excellent sushi restaurant located just off the Marktgasse in Bern (middle of the shopping district), which offers a very wide selection of sushi, sashimi, and some Korean and Japanese specialties. Although the location isn't by any means charming (although the inside seating is somewhat more upscale), there is no doubt that since the unfortunate and... More

we went there on a Saturday. The place was quiet and the staff not busy. The waitress we got was really not friendly, quiet cold like she was didn't really want to do her job. At the end, we got one waiter who was more friendly but we had to wait a while before getting the bill, like we were... More

From an amazing starter of tuna carpaccio with chilli sauce to the rude waitress mentioned below (almost worth the trip to witness her snarling) to some fairly tired and heavy vegetarian sushi to some good spring rolls to an eye-wateringly expensive bill......don't quite know how to rate it. For a country so far from the sea, not bad i guess
