Service was great, smiling and attentive. The food however was, let me say - strange? I am a sushi fan so I am judging this from that standpoint. I was surprised and for those of you sushi lovers out there who feels particularly adventurous than go for it - you will be surprised. Whether or not you will be pleasantly surprised or not I will leave up to you - enjoy.

Hi TEBongo. Thank you for your comment. We are sorry that you seemed unhappy with our sushi. May we ask you what made you feel strange or surprising? We know some of our customers are disappointed with our sushi because we don't have both Sashimi and Nigiri in our menu and we don't have typical fish for sushi such as Tuna or Halibut. (We've decided to expand our menu beyond sushi instead.) But in your case you ordered some sushi dish and the dish you received was different from what you were expecting, right? It would be very appreciated if you could inform us how you think good sushi should be. Best regards.

Food was tasty and lovely. Authentic Japanese food.
The only waitress lady was helpful, fast and nice.
The place is cozy and nice.
I'm only visiting Kristiansand, if I live here I will probably eat here or do take-away at least once a week.
Price is quite reasonable too. Not cheap but not too expensive.
I would recomend the spicy kimchi ramen.

This small japanise restaurant was a very nice place to visit. They had different types of sushi and ramen soups. All the food we ordered was excellent. It was tasty and the service was kind and fast. The quality of the place was 10/10. It was on a quiet street so the place was also calm.I can definetly recommend this place.
