“quality sushi and sashimi made to order”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

The fish is of the utmost freshness and the chef makes the dishes on request, which means having to wait a little while for your meal, but it's well worth it. My usual lunch costs around CHF50 (assorted sashimi and a couple of sushi, or just a variety of sushi with salmon roe, sea urchin, scallop, sea bream, avocado and crab, fat tuna, and salmon).
They do sell prepackaged sushi sets as well, and I've taken some home on occasion.
Set meals are also available, I tried the grilled eel menu once and it was very good, a lot cheaper than the sushi too at CHF25 (including rice, miso soup and a salad as well as the eel).
The owners and their children prepare and serve the food, and they're very friendly and pleasant.

“more Korean than Japanese but good choice of sushi”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

This place, located close to the station, only has a handful of tables since it caters mostly for the take-away trade. The owner told me it's only been open for six months.

Their sushi menu is extensive - and expensive, but that's Switzerland! Of the 30-ish varieties, I tried eel nigiri (fish a bit dry), sea urchin gukan and flying fish caviare gukan (both perfect). I also had excellent salmon sashimi, the fish had just the right amount of rich, creamy fat and was perfectly cut. Unfortunately I found a hair in the grated daikon, but only after I'd finished everything else. Accidents happen. Seaweed salad was tart and aromatic, and the miso soup a bit bland but refreshing.

With complimentary green tea the meal came to CHF42. The owner kept asking me how I'd found the sushi, and was very friendly in a dignified way.

They also make various chicken and teriyaki dishes, with some lunch specials around CHF15 - 20.

And they sell china, pot noodles, loose tea, and soft drinks.

My average rating may be a little harsh as they might fare better compared strictly to similar Swiss establishments, they certainly try hard for variety.
