The start wasn't great. The 4 of us were placed at a table where a couple were already dining and yet the 4 behind us at the door (also no booking, we heard that clearly) were seated at a free table. The service was cheerless, to the point of being rude. The food was quite good. The fish was fresh but at these prices surely it would be unforgivable if it wasn't. The sashimi was not all well cut, so some of it had to be chewed to bite through the sinew. Same with some of the fish on the sushi. The rice was nice. Off the top of my head I could name half a dozen Japanese restaurants in Auckland which are so far superior to this place it isn't funny, so I am surprised by the high scores for this place on TA, but maybe we are just fortunate here in Auckland.

We visited this restaurant while on a short city break with 2 friends, after a recommendation from a friend that had been to the sister restaurant in Mitte.

We really enjoyed the experience, the service was friendly and attentive although the place was packed, and the sushi was great. We shared a lot of food, the most memorable pieces were the “My best friend’s Roll” and “Crunchy tuna” rolls, as well as the amaebi (sweet shrimp) and scallop nigiri. The TNT Roll didn’t really work, but we ate it anyway. The warm sake was served in cute small ceramic bottles—too small—we lost count…

Although I think it's a little expensive I do love this place!

The sushi is always freshly made and tastes great.

Unfortunately they do offer things on the menu which they never have - at least the toro hasn't been available for over a year now.

The wine choice is ok as for the bottles but not for the glasses.

All in all still one of the best sushi places in Berlin

The food and atmosphere of this establishment is great and overall a great experience! No real complaints however the service could be slightly quicker. The price range is good; however the price difference for the same roll at lunch in comparison to dinner wasn't understandable.

Although focused on Japanese cuisine & sushi there's a definitely a refreshing & unique fusion of south east Asian flavours in this small but cosy restaurant. Overall a great evening and an enjoyable meal.
