I'm happy that Ukraine and most of the world has fallen in love with Sushi but 90% of the time, it is not of great standard in Kiev. Many times the fish is not even completely defrosted, often soggy and over obsessed with mayonnaise!

The reason why sushi is expensive is because fresh ingredients of quality are needed. If not then you might as well go to macdonalds!

But I;m sure Ukraine will get better as the Ukraine will learn what better sushi is.
