I ate there once for lunch. I had the special and to this day I cannot swear there was anything in but heavy-on-the-stomach mush.

Great sushi. The menu has various options from niguiris to tepanyakis. Its location is great, right at the center of cuenca, gives you the chance to take a nice walk after dinner
