Delicious sushi - great staff! So fresh and tasty. The seaweed salad with sesame is divine. Loved the chocolate desert. Takeaway only.

No seating at this hole in the wall sushi place. We ordered the one person pack and overall taste was ok but pricey. Wouldn't come back again.

We make our daily fresh sushi the traditional way and we serve it at 12h and 18.30h. You can make your own sushi box by choosing from the pieces on display. The price range is 1€ to 2 €, depending on the piece and its ingredients. We also sell japanese beers, sake, salads, gyozas, edamame, miso soup... all to go. We have some japanese groceries: rice, vinegar, panko, sesame oil, mirin, dashi, noodle cups...
