    Awesome little Japanese with an authentic feeling. A bit expensive but totally worth it. Recommend to go when the weather is nice so you can sit outside!

    Awesome. Sushi and sashimi menu is delicious, and at a very afordadable price. Lovely quiet terrace. Extremely friendly nice service by japanesse staff.

    Only a couple of tables (reservation). Really good quality of fish, freshness that you can taste. Passionate owner who gives you the feeling to be in good hands. Unfortunately it's a bit overpriced.

    Good food (only sashimi) and personalized service - only a couple of seats - make a reservation early. The Turkish Chef/owner who learned in Japan makes a interesting combination.

    I didn't like sashimi until I tried it here. Salmon in ponzu is outstanding!

    The daily menus - amazing sashimi

    Diane Hunkeler · October 9, 2014

    They simply forgot our order and couldn't even apologize. I do not recommend this place.

    Thomas Holm · September 18, 2014
  • Albert K.

    Horrible service, small overpriced menu, shouldn't call themselves an "izakaya" if they only have 1-2 grilled items.

    Albert K · August 13, 2014
  • Kyle S.

    Great sushi. Stupid long wait times.

    Kyle Smith · August 9, 2014

    Get the Sashimi Lachs mit Ponzu. One of the best sushi you will ever have. Slightly expensive, but definitely worth it!

    Craftsmanship + love = art. This place is a rare quality gem.

    Sit at the bar and chat with the sushi chef! Get the menu for two. The fischtopf is his mother's recipe and you won't be disappointed!

    Good quality sashimi, very slow service.

    Good food but... They don't accept credit cards - only cash. You will get bill written by hand on paper without any information about tax/vat. There is no toilet in restaurant!

    Charming place, nice details (soya sauce jar), fresh sashimi in the friendliest kiez of Berlin.

    the miso soup is really yummy.

  • Cecilie L.

    In spite of all the good recommendations I wasn't impressed. Yes the place is cosy and the commodities fresh, but the food is to little and to pricy and nothing out of the ordinary.

    Cecilie Lund Madsen · May 12, 2013
  • Moji T.

    Our food came 1 hour after we ordered. Just few place inside. The weather was not warm (15C) but we had to sit outside. The service was slow & they brought the wrong food. I don't recommend it at all

    Best sushi in Berlin. You don't choose everything separately but instead sushi chef serves what was fresh on the market that day. Go for the house selection sashimi & sushi

    Olli Vanhapiha · May 1, 2011

    Very kids friendly place. Ask for profi-sticks for the kids and they will have fun using the tuned chop sticks.

    Die Enten Tapas sind großartig!

    Philipp Vierzig · August 6
  • Mary L.

    Übertrieben teurer! Für extrem kleine Portionen (zB die Ente!!) essen wird sehr langsam serviert. Wir waren zu 3. und konnten nacheinander essen.... Mit mehreren Minuten Pause dazwischen....

  • Оксана Х.

    Never again!! Teuer und nicht lecker!!!

  • Galsba

    Löst meine bisherige Sushi-Nr.1 ab. Sehr gut war auch das Sashimi. Reservieren lohnt sich, da der Laden winzig ist. Wirklich sehr zu empfehlen, aber auch etwas teurer als das Durchschnittssushi

    Gutes Essen, aber mäßiger Service und ich finde es schon sehr teuer.

    marcus L · October 10, 2014

    Passionierter Sushi Chef, hervorragende Qualität. Rollen werden mit Tagesfisch bestückt, grüner Tee aufs Haus während man wartet.

    Fantastisch. Sehr guter Fisch, originell gemacht, mit Begeisterung und Ideen. Tolles Sushi, umwerfende Suppe, liebenswerter Ort.

    Klein aber oho, der Sushi Chef Gingi ist stolz auf seinen handzerlegten frischen Fisch und redet gerne darüber. Er kann aber auch zurecht stolz sein. Sympathisch und lecker :)
