The arrangements of the Sushi plates (in little boats) is very nice, also the Sushi creations are very interesting and tasty, there is something for everyone... Best price at around 13:30, when the run for lunch is over (only with reservation really possible). Also for dinner the price is reasonable though...

Best Sushi restaurant in Franconia. Great food, but service and ambient is getting worse unfortunately. Always full - reservation required.

been coming here for few years and they have recently introduced two sittings. either 18,30 or 20,00. the first is too early and you need to leave by 20,00. so, a bit of pressure to keep an eye on the clock. service sadly has deteriorated. the food is always delicious, interesting and varied menu.

Very sophisticated variety of Sushis in the menu and very good service. Good food experience guaranteed. Please reserve a table before you go else you got to wait for a bit of time as this place is a bit crowdy at times.

I arrived on a whim on Saturday night without a booking. Altough the place was busy I was offered a place at the 'bar' and the waiter took my order promptly. I had a sush/sashimi combination and a sake. The food was very very nice and fresh, in particular the tuna and salmon sashimi was very good. They have a... More

Plus points: - the menu has a reasonable selection of sushi and sashimi plus some other dishes (although Japanese visitors may not recognize some of the sushi variations) - price/value is good - sushi chefs are Japanese - takeaway service Not so good: - service; friendly but can be slow - wait times for sushi also long at peak times...

I'd go with sashimi because the fish is nice and fresh, but the sushi rice is not quite right (my guess is that they're not using the right vinegar), so if you're a stickler for accurate sushi, you'll notice it. Otherwise, I can't see how you'd be disappointed here. The restaurant tends to be busy (filled with Germans who don't... More

I have eaten here a few times and the food is fresh, looks good when placed in front of you and most importantly tastes great. The only downside is due to it being so busy there can be a bit of a wait to get your meal. This happens both at lunch and dinner times. It's a small price to... More

If you are prepared to wait a while for your table and thereafter sit very close to other patrons such that you might as well have 1 conversation and share a meal then this is a good place for Sushi if not one of the best of Erlangen.
