Kicsi Japán Sushi

Helmed by professional Japanese sushi chef, Yoshihito Hirose, Kicsi Japán is a tiny Japanese counter service restaurant in an unlikely location: Corvin negyed, a not especially charming part of Budapest, especially given the constant car traffic on Üllői út just outside the premises. But think of this idiosyncrasy as part of the fun of exploring Budapest.

Treasures of the ocean are the specialty at this tiny restaurant, featuring maki and nigiri sushi, chirashi bowls, and sashimi. They’re memorably delicious when Mr. Hirose is present to make them, right in view of customers.
