Tuesday 7:30 arrival - made to feel welcome and settled into our table. Place soon filled up with patrons and after ordering some tasty Tempura and a bottle of Prosecco the restaurant burst into life. Main of Tuna Tataki and some sublime Wagyu beef was followed by some super deserts and liqueurs and vintage rums. Already considering another visit before... More

We thought we would try some sushi while on holiday and were blown away by this place. Everything we tried was phenomenal and we hit a point where we just couldn't eat any more. We will surely go back before we leave for home.

Good sushi at a (from my prospective) standard price. The owner pays great attention to his client needs and other personnel is ready to explain and suggest. Location is small inside and outside and indeed outside has not a great view even if the restaurant is close to the center of the city. Worth a visit if you are in... More

I found this sushi bar tho just eat app and decided to give it a try. Price is just normal in my opinion, it's a sushi bar after all. I really enjoyed sashimi and uramaki. A nice place worth trying.

I visited Sushisalento with my wife and daughter for lunch and enjoyed some very good Japanese food which was a great contrast to the Puglian food I have been eating whilst on holiday. We started with some tempura prawns and some octopus balls which we both excellent. We then then enjoyed some very fresh tuna and avocado hosamaki rolls and... More

Needed a change from Italian food and saw an advert for this place so we decided to go and try for lunch. Great service with friendly staff. The Japanese food that we ordered was excellent and good value. A must try if you want to have a change of menu.

Here for the second time, after almost one year and half... We went for a take away box which, based on our previous experience, should have been mind blowing... Not at all! Smelly fish, brown tuna with greenish reflexes, yellowish sea bass and a poorly prepared sushi really looking as from the previous day. Icing on the cake: 4 hosomaki... More

We thought it would be a nice change from italian food. It was a change, but not a particularily nice one. The sushis are acceptable. But do avoid the tempura, which is just a totallly overpriced selection of frozen asian stuff you can buy in any supermarket. Service is OK. They did overcharge by 10 euros but it looked like...
