I ate here recently, with the family. Two adults, two kids.

It was a disappointment.

No normal tables, just some bar stools, around the rotating japanese food 'train', where I counted about 6 different dishes, each spaced out more than a meter..

Ok, the food was reasonable, but:
- two little sushi's: 7 francs
- four tiny maki's: 7 francs
bottle of cheap rose: 34 francs

After paying the bill (over 150 francs) I was still hungry.

If I am going to spend a serious amount on a family lunch, then at least give me decent seating, good food choices and excellent service.

Won't go back.

We went to this Sushi restaurant for dinner before going for a movie in REX. The sushi was good with fresh products. Somehow, the choices weren't much for us. There were just some salad, rolls with seaweeds, and saumon sashimi. We had to sit for an hour before other interesting choices came.

And last but not least, the waitress charged us two bottles of white wine while we had only one.

The price/quality relationship is terrible. It's not the worst sushi I've ever had, but the price was outrageous for something that was far from being unique.

However, the atmosphere is decent and their service is efficient. That's the only reason I don't give this restaurant one star.

This is a nice central location in a luxury or nice mall. It is like a Sushi train that has a track of sushi moving bye and you just pick up what you like to eat. And its fresh, just expect Geneva Sushi Prices.

I got to know this restaurant through Groupon. They sell coupons 50% off, meaning when you spend CHF60 at the restaurant, you can pay with a voucher that you acquired by CHF30.

It's really a hoax, a joke. You can use ONLY one voucher per person per time you visit the restaurant. And here's the trick...

Prices are incredibly expensive for portions that could not feed a newborn child.

As a result you have to take many portions to feel something starting to touch your stomach. Including for people that eat just a bite.

At the end you spend an incredible amount of money, your voucher does not mean anything and...

I come with 3 friends and we ended up with an outrageous bill for lunch. We just left and went to McDonald's so we would not starve during the afternoon.

Avoid it at all costs. To get some sushi in Geneva for a decent price, go to Wasabi instead. The environment is not that great, but food is amazing for a reasonable price.
