“Ambiance, Meh...Sushi, fantastic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

When I went into the place I was disappointed that it had been in the top 5 sushi restaurants in Berlin. There is no sushi-bar, it's been purposely stacked with magazines business cards, etc. so no one uses it. The menu is a textbook "sushi-for-beginners" menu with a limited selection and full of pictures.

However when we sat and someone came to the table, everything changed. The Menu is really just a guideline and they have a lot more to offer, you just need to ask. When the food came I was even more surprised at how much effort was put into ensuring quality, flavor and presentation.

I will definitely go here again.

“Very good sushi in a nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

I visited this restaurant with my husband around christmas 2012. The sushi was fresh and beautiful (I send in a picture), service was quick and friendly and we loved the minimalistic modern oriëntal interior. We had tea with fresh mint leaves, honey and fresh squeezed ginger, which was absolutely lovely. (check out the picture I send in) I was not familiar with this recepy, but I've made it at home for ourselves several times since then. I would recommend this place to anyone who likes a good sushi for a reasonable price in a nice atmosphere.

“Very good food for the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I had their specialty (I don't remember the name, something like chicken teriyaki) and it was excellent. Sushi was very good, tuna could be better, but salmon was perfect. All together for less than 20€ was cheap and very good. The rice was excellent which is very important to me.

“Worst sushi ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

The worst sushi ever ! Not firmly rolled, totally out of balance (too sweet). Glad I live in a place where they have better sushi.

“Smelly and basic”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Restaurant has an appauling smell. Sushi rice is overcooked and service horrible. Waitress pointed us out when bringing the receipt that tips are not included and that we should add extra for this.
