Yesterday I payed a visit to the restaurant and from many perspective it was a good surprise. The food was delicious though came with too much rice and service was satisfactiry.

There is one thing though which will definitelly keep me from bringing any of my friend next time which is the ordering system. You get a tablet which has a built in limitation to prevent you from ordering more then 5 pieces per 5 minutes. So that's 5 pieces per five minutes. It is ok when you are alone. But according to the waitress if the four of you sit in you'll still get one tablet with same settings meaning you can eat around maximum of one piece per 5 minutes. E.g. one nigri per 5 minutes. Crazy! That's where my grade 2 is coming from!

If you have time until your train start, you can go in, but if you need original sushi bar, it isn't. The owner is Chinees, but not so friemdly as the Tokyo running sushi at Hero's square and not so tasty as Wasabi on the Podmaniczky street. You can have manu or all you can eat, but this place is forgettable.

I tried both a la carte and all-you-can-eat here. I liked the classical nigiri, maki, inside-out maki, temaki and sesame balls. The other dishes were not for me, I tried several ones. The ordering from a tablet can be fun with friends.

Service is a joke, prices ars high, quality is medium.
In this restaurant, it is OBLIGATORY to eat. They do not allow you to sit at a table witz friends, if you don't eat. Since it is all you can eat, you either do that, no matter if you actually want to eat, or you have to leave. I suggedt you all to just not even go there.
There are so many sushi places in the city, better ones, nicer ones, more friendly ones.
