“Sublime Braised Mackerel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

We had lunch here after a museum visit in the area. We chose the restaurant randomly. Well, it was a great choice. The place had just opened, and we were served promptly and helpfully. I had a huge lunch just for the sake of trying different things, as good Japanese food is hard or impossible to get where I live. My soy-braised mackerel was one of the best fish dishes I've ever had, the fried mackerel good but nowhere as good. The squid tempura was fluffy and tender, and the seaweed salad complemented the mains nicely. The miso soup was good. The others has sushi and were satisfied.

“Ishin? no problem!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

The sushi is fresh, the dons are good and affordable and the Cey-Ros really worth the try. I can strongly recommend Ishin for a good value tasty meal in Berlin. If you want to have a romantic dinner, do not go there.

“Great Cey Ro's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Many people are sitting in a big room and have lunch? Sounds nice? Not at all but don’t worry. The Ishin is a nice place in the “middle” of Berlin close to Friedrichstraße. The food is good and the price is low. As a starter choose some makis or nigiris before you order a Cey Ro with Salmon or a Don with beef for main course. Or even better – order everything at the same time and enjoy!

“Good selection of sushi and excellent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who lives in Berlin so we decided to visit it on a recent trip there. Upon entry, you get a bit turned off with the cafeteria-like decor, seating style and noise. However, the sushi selection is quite extensive for the average sushi aficionado. The quality is good but not outstanding and they have some good menu deals which make for very good value for money.

In my experience, there ae very few really good sushi restaurants anywhere in Germany and this one is good but not great. The service is also a bit lacking!

Would definitely go again when I'm next in Berlin.
