as downtown Helsinki is more and more dominated by chain sushi places and places offering gas station sushi, this place is becoming more and more of a gem for the proper stuff. Small, but with fast service, you can't go wrong here

Small sushi restaurant in the city centre with good tasting sushi and quick service. Not that much to choose from, either food or drinks. Just basic stuff, but it tasted good.

A small sushi place, friendly service and very decent sushi. The lunch combos give you good value for your money. Despite the friendly and fast service, the staff seemed mostly interested in gossiping: I must say I would've preferred less information on their personal health...More
