The location of this restaurant is great. Right in the centre of Utrecht. We sat in the downstairs area. Even though it was rather warm and stuffy, the ambiance was good. We took the All you can eat option, without the 2 or 3 round limit. The food is great, there's something for everyone. Sushi, fried food, soup, etc. We... More

My friend (who loves sushi) and I visited this place and we loved it. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly & helpful. They serve a lot of different dishes and after my order I got my food in an acceptable time (many all-you-can-eat restaurants have a huge delay..). I'm looking forward to my next visit!

We have visited a place with a similar concept called sumo and umami is way better, the quality, the service and the ambiance are by far of better quality and t is slightly cheaper. We specially liked the salmon flambé rolls and the wonton soup.

We love sushi, but this was not it... The waiters were kind and did their best to explain us the to us very confusing concept of a menu. We only ordered sushi, but what we got was fare from that! The rice was falling apart and the fish tasted nothing close to fresh. The food arrived within 2 minutes, but... More

We had a lovely dinner, and we choose the formula "all you can eat". We were not able to finish all rounds ! The food is of quality and so the service. The restaurant has the possibility of seats outside, close to the channel. Fantastic! We decided to seat inside and remain there. The service was also fast. We also... More

My wife and I stumbled in for dinner without a prior reservation but were seated immediately. Interesting concept of three-course or 'eat-all-you-can' which we were unfamiliar with but the very helpful waiter, Xander, walked us through it and his knowledge of the vast menu helped guide our choices. The food was outstanding! The sushi great! We shall definitely return.

To start off with the plus: the staff here was very helpful and friendly. But otherwise, the food was mediocre. Besides the shrimp dumplings and vegetable maki, which were both decent, there wasn’t one dish that was outstanding in a good way (The miso soup was outstanding in a bad way because it was so salty neither of us could...

In this restaurant you will three courses for a fixed price (22,95€) For every course you can choose 2 dishes and there are more than 70 to choose from and that is pretty hard! You also get to choose 1 side dish. So, if you are with two people, you could already try 14 dishes! Staff is friendly and always... More
