“Best Japanese in Tunisia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2013 via mobile

It's a small venue, meticulously run by the owner. Very delicious sushi, sashimi and various rolls.
The grilled brochettes should be less grilled to my taste but overall excellent food
The service is nice.
The restaurant is quite noisy.
Pricy but still affordable
I recommend

“Best sushi in Tunisia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2013

Went to both the Ennasr and La Marsa restaurant. Ennasr is very good, La Marsa is excellent. The restaurant in La Marsa is very popular among expats and the small place is always packed.

Sushi is delicious, better than most of the sushi I have eaten in Europe. Staff is friendly, always smiling and helpful.

Price might be a bit high but if that's the price to get away from the beaten track in Tunis than so be it.

“Only edible sushi in Tunisia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

I haven't been to the restaurant in Ennasr, but ordered sushi for home delivery from the new Origami express takeaway in La Marsa. After living in Tunis for 1,5 years I have finally found a place where I can eat sushi without having to fly to Europe.

Yes, it is expensive compared to Europe, but I would not eat sushi here anywhere else. It is definitely not the best sushi ever that I have eaten, but it is decent, not disgusting, safe to eat, freshly made with proper ingredients and clearly someone who actually knows what sushi (and hygiene when handling raw fish) is about, is making them. If you must have sushi in Tunis, have it here. In Europe I would have rated it as good, but here comparing with the awfulness of the other options, it gets a very good as relative to the other options.

“Excellent sushi although expensive for Tunis.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2012

Great sushi but it is expensive. That being said, it is worth the price. Fresh and tasty. Rice was well made. The best sushi in Tunis no exceptions
