I went after quite some time. The salmon is still amazing! Just as I remembered. Service could be a bit more professional: speed and eye for detail/attention by the waiting staff could be better.

The options on the menu are varied, and the specials menu is worth a look. The menu is, however, limited to Sushi and Sashimi. There is no ramen, katsu, terriyaki, etc. which you may sometimes expect to find in such an establishment. However, this is a small place, and I would suggest that they take their sushi seriously and choose... More

Being an avid sushi fan, having been to the stalls at the Tokyo Fish Market to the best that California has to serve up this is a solid sushi bar. Most of the sushi restaurants in Cologne are the all you can eat pre-made style, not my style. The spicy tuna hand roll is very good with generous portions of... More

I was really disappointed after our visit at that sushi bar. The location itself is very small but has a cozy atmosphere and the service was friendly, too. But since the restaurant is very small you're not able to have a private conversation because other customers are literally sitting directly next to you and are able to listen to everything....

In the same line as Karstadt right behind Neumarkt. A nice bit of sushi to round off a shipping trip. Eat At the bar while watching the Japanese (maybe) Chef prepare the sushi or sit down At tables if like. Its comfortable enough to go with the Kids but also cosy enough if you are on your own. And it... More

Reasonably priced Japanese food, well-presented. Some of the best I've had. Real Japanese chef and polite staff

Even though the staff is friendly, we found the sushi very very average. The Ebi maki not good at all. They were cold! The nigiris not that fresh.. We went quite late so maybe that's why... Not sure we will go back... Location is perfect as its center.

Nothing against this little sushi bar, but it is little and bit empty. Sushi was good and the staff speaks english and is friendly, if you are lucky you might find parking place also

I really love sushi and sashimi. The quality of the Bio Salmon I've tasted here was just amazing. Rich, sweet, full flavored. Possibly one of the best ever.

Nice little sushi place in downtown Cologne. Didn't know of it - just went for it for lunch. A nice selection of different sushi - had a bit of it all. Nice sushi all around - attentive service and a nice view of the busy streets outside. Could easily go there again for a lunch...
