I don't know the name of it, but if you look up the chinese/Thai restaurant in Swords Manor, they also have a sushi menu. I've had it a few times and altho it seems fresh enough, it's nothing special. Give it a try yourself, it's worth that much!
My overall vote would go to Mitsuba on parnell street with the other place The Hop House not too far behind it. I'm not quite the connoisseur some of the posters above seem to be but each of these are good in my book. Mitsuba does orders for collection also.
My only gripes would be sometimes Mitsubas Temaki rolls have been chewy which is not only not nice, it's awkward! and The hop house, as like nearly all other sushi restaurants in Dublin is very over priced with Avacado rolls top of my hotlist for crazy prices around the capital.
Good to see there are more places popping up though, can't wait to check out OP's place in Ranelagh!
