I've been in this restaurant to give a try to their lunch offer. First of all, better make a booking before going, otherwise you will be offered one "standing - not sitting" table, or you can be refused from the start. Their business lunch offer is various ... you can choose from around 12 combinations of sushi, sashimi, ramen or rice for 12.5 euro. I have chosen the sushi/sashimi mix. It has been accompanied by miso soup and hot green tea (included in the same price). While the miso soup has been tasteless, the sushi and sashimi were good, as well as the fragrant green tea. However, I couldn't understand why they serve a lemon slice together with the sushi (wasabi and soya sauce are enough to tender the taste of the fish).
A big negative aspect that I want to underline is the rudeness of the chinese lady, which is ruling the place. She keeps an eye on you, because her main goal is that you eat your meal, pay and get out as soon as possible, in order to free the table; no time for you to enjoy the green tea, the taste of sushi or the conversation. Bite-swallow-go. Stinginess beyond borders.

We went there for our dinner the last night in Bergamo and it was okay. Miso soup was simple, nothing exeptional, but very good and sushi was fresh and really tasty. Now as we think, we could've tasted something else also. The only negative thing is that staff doesn't speak ANY English and they don't even try.

This is one of the many japanese restaurant of the city, but I tried only this one and I pleasanty surprised.
I'm used to Milano's japanese restaurant where mostly the cousine is chinese and the food is "plastic" (except few..).
This restaurant is owned by chinese people but nothing was bad in the whole dinner.
The ambience is very nice, relaxing and quiet, few tables on the upper floor, two tables like a sushi bar at the entrance.
They offer main sushi dishes, and some hot dished, from edamame to udon, grilled fish/meat and vegetables.
I enjoyed the green tea tiramisu, though I do not think that this one was home made.
However, the rice in sushi/maki/temaki was good and propery cooked, fish had a nice taste and they had particular (but simple) combination of tastes in some new maki.
The personnel is skilled, delightful and ready to listen to all your questions or wish.
The price is a bit high, but I liked to spend money to have that quality of dinner!!!
