We love sushi in this place, but when we came for the second time here and asked to sit by window (there was a free table for 4), they said NO, only table for 2 in other side of the room. This spoiled the whole impression. It shouldn't be like that.

We picked this restaurant so to the proximity to our hotel and I am so glad we did it was outstanding. I had the crispy salmon yum! And my boyfriend a bento box which he really enjoyed. If your in Ireland go!

This is a great little sushi restaurant with a lovely atmosphere, right next to the river on Dublin. The staff are helpful, attentive and friendly (but not pushy, so you don't feel rushed) and the food was excellent - good value for money. Would definitely recommend it and would certainly go back if I'm ever in Dublin again.

Recommended by our local office, the food was delicious. We'd booked a table and were enjoying the view and the food, didn't realize until turning to leave, there was a long queue - a good sign of the popularity but won't work in a rush.

Restaurant is situated opposite my hotel (The Spencer) so handy if you don't fancy a trek into Temple Bar esp if you're walking during the Winter season. Venue isn't that large & tables are quite close together so a definite 'no' for an intimate meal or private conversation. Food (sushi) is ok but there's no 'wow' I'm afraid plus it's... More

The place has some of the best sushi in town. Tried the sushi combo: great taste and good value for money. Tried also the boost tea with it - fantastic!

This was the 1st place myself and my friend visited upon checking into our accommodation and it made for a fantastic start to the trip! This was the 1st time my friend had ever had sushi/Japanese food and he thoroughly enjoyed it, I have had sushi numerous times all over the world and this place matches almost all of them,... More

This is a pretty decent spot for sushi. Had dinner here and while slightly pricy for sushi everything was fresh and had good flavor. Very small inside and tables are pushed together pretty tightly.
