Small restuarant providing good service along with high quality sashimi. The serves were very generous. I particularly enjoyed the salad that accompanied the Sushi Sashimi Bento. No liquor served but meal enhanced with green tea provided in a very pretty pot.

We took a take out and it was fun watching the Japanese ladies make the sushi. Price/ quality they were expensive but certainly delicious

Unlike the rest of my family I do not like the idea of eating raw fish. However there was a lot more stuff on the menu to keep me satisfied. What made this place stand out for me and my children was the superior service...More

Found this place purely by accident on the Leiden high street, quaint, tiny and quiet is just what you need to get away from the real world. Service was pleasant and available in English and Dutch. The sushi was just amazing, nothing like the chain...More

This is the place to go, if you want to have a really good sushi in Leíden. The place is small, but you can order to take away.

I really don't want the world to know how good Bento is. It's small, cheap and excellent, and I visit the place twice a week on average. I'd up this to three if I could. But why sound the trumpet? The last thing I want...More

Well, so far that is. But compared to Shabu Shabu or the Albert Heijn XXL Sushi Bar it is. Good quality sashimi, nicely cut, and the sushi rolls are not too firm. I would not recommend eating in, it is not really cosy, the door...More
