“No chicken or prawn and no English”
Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

Only salmon, crab and tuna sushi, which is good for seafood lovers. But no chicken and no prawn. The staff don't speak an inch of English, they couldn't even understand when asked for salt, or if they had chicken or prawn sushi. So frustrating.

Edamame beans were old. My partners salmon sushi was good. Miso was bland. Overall, nothing special.

“cheap fare, low quality”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

I have been to this place after a friend told me it was good and cheap. I agree with cheap (the list price is around 18 euros for all you can eat, but since they give customers promotional tickets for 2 for the price of one, it's easy to pay half the list price), but the quality is definitely poor. The fish is tasteless, and scarce; the rice is way too abundant, so all you taste is rice. The seafood salad is a joke: mostly badly cut salad, a bit of horrible surimi and a few thin slices of octopus. I have had seafood salad in japanese restaurants before and it was delicious. Not here. The presentation of the food, which is one of the merits of japanese cooking, is terrible. But after all, this is a chinese restaurant resending to be japanese.
The place is nothing particular, basically a bar converted to a restaurant. One good word goes to the service, which is rapid and very friendly.

“once again, one more 'All you can eat' sushi where quality is not reasonably possible”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

it gets 2 stars only because of really cheap prices if you get a 'All you can eat' meal and are hungry... otherwise the menu is the same as if you eat 'a la carte' & unworthy their prices. salmon tartare is very low level one but finally one of the best dishes. the rest is almost made by rice abuse and invisible fish, and that raw fish does taste about nothing at all. below expectations even if that cheap. anyhow, place is nice and service is ok
