The old japanese lady working the dining room was really charming. The sushi was fresh and the decor crisp and clean and it was not overly priced either. The place was surprisingly empty on a tuesday evening and we found ample parking below the Casino right next door, convenient. Nice place, worth the buck.

Our group had lunch there during a recent visit to Helsinki. The sushi was good, but not excellent, and the soup was a bit salty. Reasonably priced and the place has a good feel to it. I would give another shot if I visit Helsinki and I was in the area, but probably won't enthusiastically recommend it.

The sushi was not too bad but the service left a very bad taste in our mouths. It was about 2pm on a Saturday and the restaurant was quite empty. We ordered a vegetarian plate plus an extra dish amounting to 15 Euros. The man who took our order said "Is that all?" with some disgust. We replied "yes" and he said "that order is so small!" We said we only wanted a small snack. He then aksed if we wanted to buy a beer and we said no and he shook his head and started muttering in Chinese. Anyways, the order was not that small actually and was quite enough for two people, and it was not like we were taking up seats in a busy restaurant. There were only two other customers at the time. the worst part was the rude man who took our order, came by and dropped our food on the table and then brought us the half used water from the table beside us after those previous customers had left. How rude! Don't go there. VERY RUDE AND POOR SERVICE.

Nice sushi for lunch or if your are otherwise in a hurry. Restaurant it self is rather modest place and the surrounding neighborhood is, hmm, interesting. Sushi was not bad but not anything above average either, so I guess you might think again before heading there?

This is a poor, small and expensive Sushi place located near the Hakaniemi Square in Helsinki. The Suhi is quite awful, as the the pieces are not fresh and there's an excessive amount of rice. Order a beer with the Sushi and you will get a room temperature Lapin Kulta.

This place is awful, I would rather eat at the McDonals next door.
