I like this place very much. Finnish owners who were at work in Japanese's restaurant ' Rakuja ' before, know how to cock rice and sushi. This is nota buffet place, so sushi is always fresh and tasty. I hate Chinese sushi buffet restaurant, because...their sushi is terrible. So, if you want to have really good sushi, you should visit place like this. As you may know, sushi should not stand for a long time like sushi buffet places. I have heard that owner visited Japan and learned how to make sushi and you can see it and taste it form their sushi. One of the best sushi places in Helsinki, absolutely.More

The place is, as all sushi bar should be, plainly decorated, no frills, efficient, clean. So you can simply focus its good sushi. In sushi bar, you don't hang around long. It was invented as fast-food: good quality, cool (temperature), easily carried from the plate...to the mouth. And this place offers just that. If you know your sushi, you don't need more explanation.More

Everything is always fresh, super tasty and beautifully plated. Portobello nigiris are to die for! Service has also been excellent every time I have visited.

Minato Sushi restaurant is located a few blocks from the main shopping streets but it’s still well within a walking distance. The staff is super friendly and makes everyone feel welcome. The food is very fresh and tasty. I would especially recommend to try out...the grilled whitefish nigiris with lime salt!.More

Dropped in just before they closed and were welcome to sit outside. Sushi was delicious. Very fresh and well prepared. The restaurant is very small but staff is very friendly and allowed us and another couple to sit outside and finish our sushi 40 minutes...after the officially closed - we had not realized the time! Price is fair (quality sushi is never cheap) and they had japanese beer and good miso soup. Will go again.More

I heard this is the best sushi place in Helsinki. Brought a knowledgeable Japanese friend to find out. Yes, it is! The core sushi craftmanship, the rice, is perfect as in Tokyo. The lime-salt concoction sits perfectly on whitefish and salmon. There is a Kolari...roll – the chef comes from that place in the North – with a wonderful mix of fish and vegetables. The Kappamaki roll has a sprinkling of Portobello pepper – it brings this traditional staple alive. These guys are creative without being vulgar as they sometime are in California. The downside is that this is mainly a take-out joint with only 2 + 2 seating. Next time what we do, weather allowing, is to come and get a bento-box, walk two blocks south to the seashore or to the Sinebrychoff park and have a wonderful picnic.More

amazingly fresh, high class fish and some out of the box combinations - highly recommend! Just a few tables inside but sushi is always a great picnic or takeaway food too.

Great Sushi and a chilled vibe. Might get really busy, but worth the wait :) Especially the Lime Nigiri was a nice new and tasty flavor for me.

We have visited a number of times and had wonderfully rich flavoured muso soup with seared salmon and see weed. We wanted to come back for a proper sushi meal but our time didn't allow. However, the coy atmosphere, friendly stuff and wonderful flavours really...make this spot a magnificent place in Helsinki.More
