Place is cozy and service really friendly. We ordered two different rolls and a suggestion by the waitress and everything was tasty and fantastic. After it we decided to order another two that were great also. Go with enough money to have a proper meal.

Fresh and tasty sushi. The variety is not big but the dishes are tasty. Only the starters need a bit more creativity
