If you like sushi, this one is highly recommended. They serve a nice mixture of the Japanese and European kitchen. Tokyo 55 opened in 2008 on the same spot where Helsinki’s first Japanese restaurant “Tokyo” once stood in the 1960′s.
Tokyo 55 is run by a family who also operate the next door restaurant Mamma Rosa. Its resurrection was completed with a genuine Japanese sushi master and a Sushi Academy, where one can book an event for groups between 8 to 40 persons. Have a really bad sushi-tooth? Try the all-you-can-eat buffet open on Tuesdays to Fridays at lunch time.
I really got into sushi just four years ago. I first tasted it in Göteborg 2007. There weren’t many sushi restaurants in Helsinki before and Tokyo 55 was one of the first ones to do it properly. I once tried to make sushi myself. The taste was pretty much ok, but the appearance was more like a Swiss roll filled with rice. But, hey, after that I appreciated good sushi even more. And sake of course.
