We used to eat from sushi bento at least once a month for 5 years. I had friends visiting from abroad who I also took there. We all agree that the fish is extremely fresh. The scallop and salmon melts like butter ! The place...More

This is a tiny little sushi restaurant, it seems mainly thriving on take away. The sushi is of average quality compared to Dutch standards. A big disadvantage is that they don't serve alcoholic beverages. On a positive point, the green tea is good. The place...More

I tried several sushi bars and take away in Leiden, and this one is by far the best one. Very small place, so don't go there if you are in group. They hardly can serve 10 people at their tables. I always order and pick...More

This year I discovered this small restaurant in Leiden and I have been there several times already. They have room for probably 18 guests so be sure to make a reservation, but you can always order for take away. You can see the cooks prepare...More
