I was disappointed with this restaurant - they don't really put fish in the sushi or rolls. And I certainly couldn't order my favorite sushi or sashimi because it wasn't on the menu. On the positive side what I did order was tasty and this restaurant is very cute (although a little small). I was just expecting fish, so I... More

This place is a very small place with delicious Sushi - the tastiest in town. I have tried several Sushi places and this is one of the only authentic Sushi places I have visited in Germany so far. Pricing is at a very low level for Sushi and as affordable as any other fast food menu. Entering the tiny "box"... More

Small and nice restaurant. Atmosphere is great! They serve fresh korean style sushi with Kimchi (it's not the best I ever had, but ok) and ginger. Vegetarian dishes available as well. I strongly recommend the ginger honey tea!!!!

If you like some other combinations in your sushi rather than the usual ones, this is the place to eat. Ramen is not as good as the sushi though. Inventive Sushi as mango, eel and cucumber are offered and they taste really good. Staff is very fast, but dont expect the over friendly, kind and respectable type of classical japanese... More

Awful place. Tasteless sushi. Sashimi it simply withdrawal of a salmon. The aerated soy sauce. I don't advise. Ужасное место. Невкусные суши. Сашими это просто отход лосося. Газированный соевый соус. Не советую

This tiny little place has quickly become our favourite place to go for Sushi when in Dortmund. Of those sushi places in town I've tried, their's is the tastiest, and service is swifter and friendlier than elsewhere. Located not quite in the city centre, but near the Kreuzviertel district popular for its bars, restaurants and cafés. There are a few... More

Making a reservation is definitely recommended, as this restaurant is both small and popular." -tripadvisor- "Oh, wie ich mich freue! In Städten wie Berlin oder Hamburg muss man nach Läden wie diesem gar nicht suchen.
