We love Japanese food and honestly I would say that Sushi Sei is the best by far in town. The Japanese Chef must definitively make the difference as all is prepare by respecting the high Japanese authentic cuisine standards; tradition, taste, freshness, presentation… Just avoid...the terrasse which is noisy and full of mosquitos in summer!More

3.5 stars- Love coming here with friends to catch up and just have a nice lunch! The food is pleasant but I think the real reason I keep going is for the atmosphere! Also staff is super helpful and friendly!

We come here frequently from 2018 but from our last visit, we think they do not provide the food quality for the price they ask. The same food but the portion becomes smaller, not mention how expensive it is now.... I do not know we...will return or not...More

I've been to a number of Japanese restaurants in Budapest and I can say none of them can be compared to the high standards of Sushi Sei. Food is always excellent, fresh and tasty, done under the supervision of a Japanese chef. Service is also...very good. Also a chance to escape from central Budapest and explore the charming Óbuda area.More

Sushi Sei is one of the few really authentic japanese restaurants in Budapest, with a relatively high price range, but if you want to have the real deal, you need to pay for it. All the dishes served here are super fresh and incredibly tasty....There is a wide range of lunch offers as well as bento options. The only downside, and the reason for my 4 stars is the staff... really not friendly and feels like they hold their noses way too high.... I think for what you get the price is very worth it! The staff needs to get some social skill training... Still I recommend.More

#maki #sashimi #business #lemonade #mizo The waiter was very kind, he helped with choosing the dishes, and explained everything (what sorts of fish had been served, how to eat bentos) The atmosphere was undeniably one of the most unique and remarkable. If you want to...taste real japanese dishes, then it worth visiting this restaurant at least on one occasion.More

so small amount, there were not meat in Yakiniku Bento at all. But price was too much expensive without meat & hospitality.

We had a wonderful diner there. Trully a delightful and enjoyable moment dedicated to japanese food! You can feel the attention of details on every piece, and you often get more than expected, more texture, more taste, more delicacy... anyway, i think our recommendation is...crystal clear!More

We used to be regular at this one, but it tends to be a disappointment. The food is fine, but the service. They did not prepare our taka away in the right way. We could not eat everything we ordered so we asked for a...take away. We had a bill of +100€ We found out about the missing parts at home ☹️ However we got the usal white rose, it is a regular gift for female guests... 👍🏻More

We visited on a Wednesday night with family. The overall experience was pretty good. The fish was fresh, the green tea cheesecake was delicious and they also had a playroom for children which was perfect for our 20 months old baby. The surprise at the...end was also very pleasant. The only thing I would highlight was that our server didn’t smile once and he told us the kitchen closes at 21:15 (when on the phone they said 21:30, and the same thing is written on the door.More
