I often come here to have maki/sushi/sashimi. sit at the counter to watch your sushi being prepared. Never disappoints in quality of fish. I can also recommend trying the vegan maki (like avocado). They have a selection of hot and cold sake. Spontaneous visits often do not work because the restaurant is full. You should call for a reservation instead.

Wonderful Japanese restaurant for eat sushi and row fish. Fish was fresh and delicious, was the first time for me eating row fish like that. Only problem for me is that the restaurant is very small, but the good thing is that the chef prepare the fish and sushi just in front of your eyes.

This is the only restaurants in the world that KICKS you OUT just because you have a BABY with you. I never felt so embarassed in my life. I went with my 3-month-old daughter to the restaurant where I had a reservation. As soon as I entered the restaurant the Japanese Cook (Manager?!) approached me and told me I could... More

I'll start with the bad: it's a very small place, they have literally 2 tables and then some seats at the bar, maybe 10, it takes a very long time to get your food, they cook it next to you so your clothes will still smell 2 days later, it's not cheap, and you need to book in advance if... More

original, official japanese native sushi master celebrates sushi/sashimi culture at it's best - absolutely same quality as you can get in Tokyo ... maybe a bit less selection of fresh fish :-)

Maybe we were just unlucky, but we tried this place twice, and both times we had a bad experience. First off, this place always seems to be closed, so you really need to go when they feel like it's a good time to open. But we finally managed to catch it twice. The first time: We sat down and the... More

The only authentic Japanese restautant in town. The Lackschale is my favorite. The fish is fresh and the rice perfect. Sometimes the waiting time is a bit long because there is only one sushi Chef but it is totally worth it

Without the help of Tripadvisor I don't think I would have found this cute little hidden gem, in the small alley of the beautiful city of Graz. I came here for lunch, it's a very very small restaurant there is the Sushi bar and a couple of tables for 2. We did not reserve a table and we were a... More

Without the use of tripadvisor & google maps i don't think we would ever find this place - but it was definitely worth looking :-) Great fresh sushi in a nice and friendly restaurant for amazing price. What more can one ask for :-)
