“Not too fresh, athmosphere is ok”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013 via mobile

Would not advise to go here - sushi is not fresh (my sashimi was not cold at all). Also overpriced, not just for Latvian standards (35 EUR lunch). No tap water, but evian...

“Great quality Sushi in the heart of Riga's old town.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

We went here based on its proximity to our hotel in the old town and happily surprised!

My partner and I have had a lot of sushi globally (but not Japan) and this was pretty good. Their 2 item serves were on the pricy side but they were delicious! Their Octopus sashimi I can safely recommend! Our waiter told us there was a two-for-one deal on the smaller eight sushi platters so we went with avocado and salmon. Very happy with the quality, and even excluding the special offer, the price was decent too.

I have to agree the service was a little slow even though it was far from packed. This may be because the menu was quite thick and it could take customers a while to make their choice, whereas we knew approximately what we wanted before walking in.Having said that, the waiters were at all times pleasant and courteous.

“A new menu, a new address - and still absolutely delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

When I visited this place last time, the restaurant in 16 Skunu Str. was closed for renovation, so I tried the one in 26 Valnu Str. (a bit closer to the border of the Old City - next to the shopping centre of "Galerija Centrs").

The restaurant is located in the 1st floor - above "Il Patio", and the look is their customary "Japanese" interior in white and brown. Simple, but pleasant.

The menu had become richer, and I'd recommend to try the three kinds of teppanyaki rice, adding some soy to it.

The prices are not as low as one would wish, but not crazy, either.

“Best sushi in Riga”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2013

I think, it's the best sushi-restaurants { both in Old Riga, one one the Dome square, the second, new one, in front of shopping center Galereja Riga} in Riga. In my opinion, the prices are very low for this level of restaurants-for example, set of 8 sushi costs about 7 euro. Sometimes the have special offers, like " pay 1 get 2".
