It was one of these Fridays when I come back home after 2-3 weeks of business abroad. My family always takes me out for dinner to a restaurant then. As by default we have our favorites, but this time our kids opted for sushi. Rare case of instant consent, as they normally would argue an hour or so about the type of food we should go for.
So we explored the Auguststrasse area in Berlin-Mitte and found “Kuchi”. It was around half past six when we entered the restaurant and found ourselves in front of two blackboards saying “No empty tables, reservations only.” Quite a disappointment. But a short chat with one of the young waitresses resolved the situation and we got a table “until eight!”. Jawoll!
Nice ambiance, modern understatement and long tables. Three young Asians preparing sushi behind the bar with stoic facial expression. Not very friendly, but professional and quick service. The dishes – nicely arranged Asian cuisine standards served with the speed of light. Our kids got filled and satisfied in a couple of minutes. My overall impression – you get a value for your money, but in a cool business atmosphere.

The bill was some 80-90 Euros for the four of us, and they had this highlighted hint on their menus – “Tips not included!” – which we knew from the US only. So obviously, the 5 Euros we left as a tip with our credit card were not in line with their standards. The waitress did not even touch them and disappeared without a word. Oops. Not necessarily again!
