“I must be missing something!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We went on a special offer (groupon) so I can't comment on the normal prices, but it's just so boring! What am I missing? Twenty little portions of cold white rice, with the smallest sliver of something on top. A tiny dollop of wasabi and a minute portion of pickled ginger to try to liven it up. Is this what sushi is all about? Surely there must be more to Japanese cuisine? My husband was fascinated by the chef at his stainless steel "plancha", cooking egg fried rice and other delicacies, but as that wasn't included in our menu, we didn't get to try it. This certainly isn't the way to get new customers - as restaurant owners and chefs, we can see the enormous profits margins, but I certainly won't be in a hurry to try sushi again, unless somebody can promise me it's going to TASTE of something!

“Good but overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

We had lunch here and the restaurant was completely empty. Although the sushi was fresh and very good, the price was not so good. We eventually paid 65 euro's between the two of us and for Spain that is a lot of money for lunch.

“Outrageous prices”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Sorry but the prices here are completely over the top. The food is decent, but totally unjustified. I do understand that they have a monopoly over Japanese food in the city, but the place was empty when we were there, and everyone at my table swore they'd never be back.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2010

Good food but definitely not the best. And a bit pricey (in comparison to other restaurants in Cordoba)
