Visited the restaurant a quite calm Sunday evening. After waiting 10 minutes to order, we had to wait 1 hour on the food. The drinks came after 30 minutes. We also asked about when the food would be ready, but also this time they couldn't reach. We totally had to wait 1 hour and 20 minutes after entering the restaurant... More

We often buy from this place when we want sushi, they have high standard and you can either sit down and eat there or order to come and get it.

Best sushi place in Karlstad in terms of taste and the chefs creativity. But sadly because of their poor service I recommend their take away rather than a table.

This is a good sushi place with some original ones, which is always appreciated if you are bored with the usual salmon/tuna. The sushi themselves are good but I understand they use some frozen ingredients which I think is a big no-no for sushi. Overall though, good food ! That being said it is expensive, not sure why, but definitely... More

A Good place to have your sushi here in Karlstad. Better than average campared to Stockholm. The edamame beans a little disappointing. Felt like they had been frozen and just heated in the microwave. Without the sheeld.

Happy Kitchen has been serving the best sushi in Karlstad for some years now (there are probabably a total of 3 sushi places in Karlstad now, give or take a restaurant closure). Happy Kitchen's sushi is a little different, with a few interesting taste sensations to interest the palette. Go with time to spare - the service can take a... More

I simply love sushi and I have had the pleasure of living in Japan for a couple of years eating sushi, sashimi, rolls etc more or less every day. I currently live in a small village in Germany where sushi is hard to find so I was very excited to come home to Värmland and have lunch at Happy Kitchen... More

Based on so many top reviews in trip advisor we gave if a try. They offer Nigiris you would expect in a typical Sushi place and some fancy modern ones that have nothing in common with real Japanese sushi. Tuna was not available today which limited the seafood selection to shrimp, salmon, squid, one clam and a few other (ehich... More
