Nice to find a decent sushi restaurant in the land of southern fried everything... sushi seemed fresh and well prepared - service was good enough - nice atmosphere overall and prices are reasonable... worth a visit if you like sushi or similar Japanese cuisine.

It's been almost a year since my last visit to Athens, so a visit to Shokitini felt long overdue. Even between university sessions the place was packed, but we were able to get two seats at the bar after a wait of about 15 minutes....More
