This place is not a fancy sushi place. It serves pretty basic sushi. Mainly Maki rolls, lots and lots of Surimi, Nigiri and some Sashimi (salmon and tuna only). If you're looking for a more refined experience, don't come here. On the other hand, the fish is fresh, the place is always busy and the fast turnover more or less ensures that food gets turned around quickly. There are plenty of flaws, but if you know what you're here for, you can have a decent experience. The wasabi is not always good and the containers can be a bit grotty. The bar staff is very friendly whereas the actual servers are as indifferent/rude as it can possibly get. Always ask for a full bill as servers tend to add prices up without running it through the till, we've had lots and lots of incorrect receipts. Most of the time they try to avoid giving you receipts altogether. The entire place is in desperate need of a good scrub. We do keep coming back as it is alright for a quick bite to eat. Recommendable is number 52 or 53 (the one with the deep fried prawn and unagi). Ask the friendly guys behind the bar to make you some sashimi if you can't find it on the conveyor, they'll happily oblige.

good sushi quality, not much choices and cheap.
If you like sushi, this is one of the better you can get in Freiburg.
Still missing some 'surprising' stuff like a very fantasy gunkan or so.

Nothing bad here really, but very basic sushi quality. Service is made by a Chinese staff who don't speak English or barely understands it and are not helpful or nice. They have no forks ! So if you are not chopstick maestro you will be in trouble. You can only pay in cash, and I don't recommend you to go.

The food is decent and comes pretty fast, even when busy but some of the staff can be unfriendly. I had a pretty negative experience with my girlfriend on a Saturday evening sittting near the back of the restaurant. Everything was fine until a delivery came in. The men working in the back were literally throwing the delivery items down the stairs. For over 15 minutes they were laughing at what they were doing and pushing every crate or whatever it was down the flight of stairs. My girlfriend had to ask them what they were doing and to please stop because we couldn't hear each other over the noise of them throwing one crate after another downstairs to the basement.

This is ridiculous. On a Saturday night when customers want to enjoy some nice food in good company these jokers think it's completely appropriate to be throwing their delivery down the stairs. They seriously need to learn that customers react to such behaviour which indicates that they take their customers for granted and don't care about disturbing them.

The food is delicious: excellent quality, good portions and nice presentation. Prices are more than reasonable and the service is good. A good place to be!
