If you are looking for a great sushi spot this is for you. They have table and bar seating. We sat at the bar and received great service and fantastic food!

Good selection and tasty food. Service is not the best but acceptable. As all restaurants in Zurich the prices are quite high for wine. The choice of sweets was poor. Nice decor.

We reserved a table for 8pm. After waiting for 5 min somebody came and placed us at the bar. Nobody asked us for drinks. Chaos pure. After 30 min being ignored we left. Never again.
