“Sushi rediscovered”
Reviewed 23 November 2012

We had a family event : our daughter in law opted for this already 7 years existing DOTS restaurant.
A rather young clientele in an unconventional ambiente hidden in a pedestrial throughway enjoyed visibly ( and audibly) extraordinary sushi maki sashimi and all similar named japanese rice based fish specialities . The owner- ironically a chinese- invented totally new tastes by introducing different meat , veggies and even sushi style sweets .
We tried a lot of the unconventional courses and found it thoroghly enjoyable .
Friendly and eficient service . We will visit again .

“Ordinary sushi trying to be experimental but not succeeding.”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

Huge place, low lighting (I tripped over a raised platform holding some awful sculpture), trying very hard to be hip and cool and trendy. Sushi was just average. We asked about their saki selection, and the waitress recommended that we NOT order saki! Prices high for what we had, and service is VERY slow. Not worth the visit, unless you just want the sit in the lounge/bar area.

“Average food in an awful location”
Reviewed 14 November 2012

Dots Experimental Sushi tries SO hard to be cool, but is so far up its own proverbial, you cannot help but laugh at the attempt. Hidden down some nondescript shopping mall, or corridor, you enter the trippy, colourful lounge, trying so hard to be trendy, and the restaurant is kind of at the back. It's a kind of fusion sushi, meaning that it gives them artistic licence to put any old ill-fitting ingredients into a bit of rice. Some things work, some don't. But head for some of the trad places near the Naschmarkt if you want proper Japanese cooking.

“Best pre-party place”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

If you are looking for a hang-out place before going out, this is definitely the restaurant to go to. The best tables are around the DJ stand in the smoking area, which is near the bar. However, sushi was much better when they opened up. Now the restaurant got bigger and I must admit the quality of the food is not so good as it used to be. I would always recommend it to friends who wish to have drinks and eat a little before going to a club afterwards.

“Nice pre-party place”
Reviewed 23 October 2012

We celebrated a Birthday party there and I can say that I like this place. It's decorated up-to-date and that's more important - the meal is tasty enough. Service was also on very good level.
