Simply outstanding and still improving month after month. Visited some 20 times. If you're lucky, imported specialities from Japan will be on the menu as for example Japanese basil

We finally got around to visit this place after several average sushi experiences in Helsinki. It's well worth the praise. The fish was fresh and grilled salmon blew my mind. The service was very friendly.

Keep in mind that the restaurant has only three small tables, most people seem to grab their sushi for take-away. It's also open only until 18.00 on weekdays.

The title tells it all. I haven't had better sushi in Helsinki, and I've had a few. Especially the partially grilled salmon ones are something I can't resist. The owner couple are very friendly. I highly recommend this place. One word of warning, though, it's a tiny place, don't plan a dinner there. If you want to sit down and have a dinner, choose another sushi restaurant nearby, like Umeshu.

As a Japanese living in Helsinki, the most frequetly asked question is "Where is the best Sushi restaurant in Helsinki?". The answer is "Sushi wagocoro". I must say that this is the best Sushi restaurant in entire Finland. The restaurant itself is small with a couple of small tables, only in the weekdays until 18:00 so this place is mainly for people to enjoy take-away sushi. Sushi are prepared by certified Sushi chefs from Japan and ingredients are very fresh while there are many sushi restaurants serving wired overpriced sushis (for Japanese standard) in Helsinki. Simply enjoy authentic Sushi!

Fabulous lunch spot. The owners are very very friendly and the lunch special is always very tasty. I have been here over ten times during the past half a year, and I am very familiar with other sushi places in Helsinki, too, especially in Töölö. This one is my favorite. It's everything sushi should be!
Great place to grab take away in summer and go have a picnic in the nearby Töölö Bay Park with some beer from the Alepa across the street;)
