Very good Sashimi and non fish dishes, excellent service and an even better japanese whiskey collection. Apparantly the service was completely revamped, we hadnt been there before but it was well worth it for us. Very laid back and pleasant atmosphere. Also, pets are no frowned upon!

The rolls are just ok. Low selection, not a descent California Roll (my preferred). Service is neither good or bad, it is just inexistant. But the worst part of the story is the price. FAR FAR FAR TOO EXPENSIVE for what you get. The price vs quality ratio is just not there. I absolutely do not understand how this place... More

Lunch time, full house, but our waitress was very nice and caring. It makes such a difference! It's dificult sometime to find a good place to enjoy a nice meal, and if you get a friendly service.... Well it's make all the difference, our first time there surely not the last, nice and rich selection of sushis.

Exceptional quality of food - very creative menu - friendly staff that goes the "extra" mile (especially in Lessing) - kids are welcome - very good value - funny cooks. We (couple with 3 year old), always have a great time there, either on Max-Bill-Platz or Lessingstrasse. Try the salmon tartar with lemon sauce - a culinary revelation - for... More

Very nice Sushi place at Max-Bill-Place Oerlikon. Just around the corner of the Marriot Courtyard, so certainly a great advice for any travelers...

I first tried this place a while ago and left distinctly unimpressed. I saw they had renovated so tried it again out of curiosity - still no better. We had a reservation, but when we arrived on time were told that seating at the conveyor was full. We were instead invited to sit by ourselves in the quiet and empty... More
