I happen to buy quite often sashimi for take away. The fish is fresh and tastful, the prices for the boxes reasonable. There are two locations and I visit the one on Bleicherstrasse.

Fantastic "running Sushi" Restaurant in the heart of the old town of Sursee/Switzerland. Very fresh sushi, very friendly staff :-)

Despite the difficulty of getting many types of fish in Switzerland, the chefs do an excellent job! Soups, hand rolls, maki's, sashimi's are very good! Don't be shy ordering specials..

I had sushi already in a lot of countries and had some real good stuff. Kaiten is from the quality really good, but comparing to everything I had, also super expensive. Depends which waiter you get, your experience is better or worse. The man working there already for a while is not friendly and a touch arrogant. doesn't make me... More

Sadly, only Sushi restaurant in Lucerne. Quite small so better book a table in advance. Rather expensive but the food has a good quality.

I was hopeful that I could find good sushi in Luzern, but it wasn't meant to be. The sushi revolving around the moat at dinner must have been the uneaten rolls from lunch. The rice was dried out, edamame was cold, and gyoza were stone-cold. Sushi should be made fresh! It was really unappetizing. I guess we have to go... More

The most unfriendly service you can imagine. The prices are too high and the portions are getting smaller quality poorer. You feel like that you have to go on your knees before you order the food. Is a waist of money.

Who are these people who writes how good this place is? The price is high for this 7-11 sushi that's been going around and around in room temperature for last 20-30 minutes and you are paying the full sushi bar price.

The sushi is ok but not really good and waaayyy too expensive (even for Switzerland). I was really disappointed about the very unfriendly treatment of the service personnel. The worst of all is how they counted the price. We were a quite large group of people and it was very messy. In the invoice was incorrect but the waiter wouldn’t... More
