Was pleasantly surprised that vegetarian sushi was actually yummy! And this is coming from an Asian haha. I had the variety combi for 1 with green tea. And the sushi with the wasabi and soy sauce was just awesome.

The place is relatively cheap but the size of the food is very small. We had to order a lot to feel full. The size of juices is small as well.

Wow, what a great find! Traveling isn’t easy for Vegans and this place hits the spot! Very creative Vegan versions of the sushi you USED to eat. Friendly staff, great location, cool ambience. I’m going back tomorrow!

Lain, thank you very much. Great quality and atmosphere at a reasonable cost has always been one of our goals. Good food should be accessible to many, not exclusive to the few.
