The place came recommended as the no1 in Kristiansand so we had our hopes up. Also since the prices were close to the best Sushi restaurants in Oslo. Alas what they delivered can barely compare with the takeout version you can get at gas stations. First of all they were out of tuna and had only salmon and halibut. What... More

We tried food Asylum as take away tow times in July. The first time we ordered a selection of fried maki rolls which was very good, and therefore tried a set box a few days later. The second time we were quite disappointed of the food compared to the price. The pieces were fancy made, but it seems as if... More

Lunch menu available, but limited styles. Almost only salmon, and no tuna on the lunch menu. 1 tuna roll on the á la carte menu. Good taste though earns 4 stars.

Amazing and best sushi so far I have after Japan trip. So lucky to have lunch here because normally you have to make reservation in advance. Fresh fish, veggies, food presentation and most of all the service that made the experience wonderful and unforgetful. Always with a smile and offering for more assistance. Did not spend this much and ate... More
