You cannot beat Iceland when it comes to fish. It's just beyond great. But. Said fish was cut into a mix of too thick chunks and irregular flops with holes in them. We were served salmon with pieces of skin still attached, and horse tenderloin...More

We waited a long time for anyone to come take our order and a while for the sushi. Our edamame came out quickly and made the wait for food seem less drawn out. Waiter was super shy and seemed kind of afraid to talk to...More

Took 45 minutes for one roll and two pieces of eel, and there was only one other table there! Very slow, the sushi is just okay, and it ended up being nearly 40 dollars.

For some New Yorkers craving sushi in Europe, this definitely satisfied. The sushi was well-priced considering how expensive sushi can be and how expensive everything seems to be in Iceland. Easy and casual dining experience.

We chose the chefs delux plattet. Asked for a volcano roll too. Got salmon, and salmon, and salmon. Not the quality I usually get here. We had to wait an hour for the food, it was a half empty floor.

So this place doesn't look like much from the outside and the service certainly isn't the fastest or friendliest but their sushi is amazing! It's some of the best sushi I've ever had. Plates of sushi are quite big in terms of the number of...More

Our standard - Southern CA sushi ... coupled with our expectation that we're on an island. We expected - taste in prep, fresh cuts, or both. Experienced neither. I asked for the freshest fish dish & ordered accordingly. Salmon roll was room temp, defly not...More

We enjoyed the vegetable sushi rolls we had here, reasonably priced and the service was prompt and friendly. The restaurant had a cocktail list and a varied selection of choices. Nice ambiance, cozy spot at the top of the stairs, kind of hidden away.
