The Sushi Bar - Prague, Czech Republic

Sky High Prices - Not Worth It!


Restaurant Category : Japanese, Sushi

The Sushi Bar – Prague, Czech Republic: Opened in 1999, The Sushi Bar is the first sushi restaurant in Czech Republic. A small restaurant that is tastefully yet minimally designed, this restaurant is faithful to Japanese interior design principles. It has pale purple walls and tall ceilings that give a feeling of spaciousness despite the small size of the place; the beautiful wooden floors and ambient lighting complete the Zen experience.

The Sushi Bar is located right next door to a seafood shop, so you have a pretty good idea where their fish comes from. While I was impressed with the interiors and the ambiance, I was immediately turned off by their cover charge; it was the only restaurant I visited in Prague that had a cover charge. Perhaps to offset guests’ qualms regarding their “entrance fee,” they provided complementary appetizers of deep fried fish with a sweet sauce and fresh water eel.

We ordered edamame, boiled soy beans (10 Euro); Sashimi Set that included raw Tuna, Salmon and Shrimp—five pieces per set, ranging from small to medium in size (32 Euro per set); and finally, Maki Rolls, eight pieces per roll, and ranged in price from 31 to 48 Euro per roll.

Needless to say, the prices were outrageous—almost as much as I’ve paid in New York or Tokyo. The quality and freshness of the fish did not justify the high prices. The selection of rolls was also limited. While the presentation was great as was the service (the staff was very attentive and courteous), the food was nothing spectacular, and the raw fish even lacked in freshness. Even with their complementary appetizers, their high prices were simply unjustified!

What I liked: Service, Decor

What I didn’t like: The fish was not fresh, extremely high prices
