OMG, if this is supposed to be Berlin's number 1 Sushi restaurant, then do yourself a favor and do not eat sushi whilst in Berlin. This place does not even look like a Japanese restaurant. Let us start with the staff, who truly make you feel like you are not welcome the minute you walk in, actually they are rude, and definitely not Japanese. The service was so slow from the beginning, I had time to take a nap before the waitress showed up. When the waitress finally showed up, she was so annoyed that we actually had questions that we hurried so that we would not bother her any longer. Then a second waitress shows up that was even more annoyed that we were there. Getting a bottle of wine took forever, and I do mean forever, which arrived just before the food. The food itself was "just" ok. They are trying far too hard to be a modern creative Japanese restaurant as opposed to providing quality. The sushi itself looked like (and tasted) like it was put together in a Bavarian restaurant, it just did not have the look that the sushi should have when there is actual care taken to present food the way it should be. To be honest there were issues with this place from the very beginning to the end, even getting the bill done properly was an issue. Do yourself a favor, avoid this place.

Fresh delicious sushi, nice atmosphere, very central location. No need to pre-book. Friendly waters and good menu to choose from.

I have had sushi all over the world and is relatively critical when it comes to quality. This place offers simple surroundings, good service and very good sushi at a reasonable price. If you are unsure of where to get good sushi then go here. No worries at all.

I had dinner there tonight (October 2). I had been traveling all day, was tired and it was getting late. The restaurant had been mentioned in Frommer's, and because it was only a few blocks from my hotel, I decided to give it a try. It is just off of Friedrichstrasse, not far from what had been Checkpoint Charlie. The restaurant (Tuesday night) was not at all crowded, the service was prompt (and I enjoyed talking to the young Ukranian waitress who wanted to practice her English a little). I frequently have sushi back home in New York City, and the sushi here was definitely above average. Best of all, I ordered one of the "menu items," in which I got eight pieces of sushi and six pieces of roll, and was amazed at how reasonable it was. A cup of miso soup, the platter just described, and two glasses of beer came to $30.98. A comparable meal in a sushi restaurant in NYC would have been at least $75, and probably closer to $100. If atmosphere is not important to you, but you just want a really good sushi dinner at a very good price, give it a try if you are near the Checkpoint Charlie area in what was once East Berlin.
