Uchitomi is a great small place for Japanese grocery, take away lunch and pre-ordered dinner pick-up. They now even have a small "dining" area if you want eat in - it's on the other side of the store (the old Uchitomi store entrance). I have tried several sushis, sashimis, edamame, miso, bento and wakame salads. All very good. The prices... More

I grab food there quite often for lunch. The portions are quite small (especially Bento) and you must take something else on top otherwise you will be hungry. There is quite a large variety of Japanese items in the store and the prices are acceptable. Staff there is very nice and friendly.

I was born in Japan, and shopping here is taking me back to my childhood. Lots of variety, friendly service, and some of the cheaper sushi in Lausanne.

I would rate it "excellent" if only there was a place to eat inside. We bought different sushis and makis as well as a range of japanese salads and sat outside on the steps to eat. Much better than most sushi restaurants!

I used to order from Uchitomi often - sushi et bento boxes. I also shop there quite often as it has most of the Japanese products you need. It just seems that once they changed location (bigger store now), the bento boxes got smaller and the service has dwindled to almost nothing. I think I preferred Uchitomi when they were... More

A good qualitative selection of everything at reasonable (for Switzerland) prices. Best Japanese food shop in Lausanne

I took the take out. The sushis were nice and fresh. Once I wanted to go to the restaurant but there was not enough space...=( and it was small. Other wise This place is also a Japanese shop where they sell a lot of food and Japanese decorations.
