I visited Kaiten several times already, but the staff gets worse every time. Two times we had all you can eat, and between the first to the second round we had to wait up to one hour before we could order again. even though the restaurant was almost empty. One time the order menu wasn't given us back, so we... More

It's clear that they have the sushi pre-made and sitting around, instead of being made-to-order. Sushi should always be made fresh! We got take-away from here once, but I wouldn't go back. I haven't found a decent place for sushi in Luzern :(

Food The sushi is good and tasty. Fresh fish and well prepared rice. They have the classics as well as many special rolls. Haven't tried anything apart from sushi. Ambience It's a little restaurant with about 15 seats, so if you're a group, definately get a reservation! If you don't reserve a table, you can be seated with other guests,... More

Totally depressing this place. Food was too expensive and special orders weren't possible (bad case since my friend is allergic to avocado). Service was a total disaster. After explaining the order about 5 times, the waitress brought the wrong food and yelled at us "talk to my boss if you're not pleased with your food!" Poor thing the "boss" wasn't... More

I was there a few times with friends, and we always thought we'll give them another chance... The sushi is average, but too expensive! I know in Switzerland everything is expensive, but this sushi is not worth the price... Whatever you do, DO NOT order anything special!! For example I'm allergic to avocado. They told me I should order another... More

I have had many sishi's all around Europe and this Sushi place in Lucern was not special, just ordinary one. Taste like everywhere, the price bites (what could you expect from CH?), but since i did not pay the bill, then Ok. They serve sushi with non home made souces.

While servicable, this is not more-ish or exciting sushi. Functional, solid, but no wow factor, but the price will still make you swoon (if you are used to eating sushi outside of Switzerland). Service was pretty ordinary too, hard to get their attention even in a nearly empty restaurant at lunch time, the girls really give the impression that they... More

This is the only sushi place where I can never seem to eat all I get. The sushi are so very rich - densely rolled and with a lot of filling - that I usually end up leaving half uneaten as I much prefer them done with a light hand. Not a very choice sushi place perhaps, but it certainly... More
