Recommed the raw meet section where your collected dishes are prepared live for you as you like them. Service is a bit cold though fast. Easily accessible. Provides also lunch.

At The East in Mannheim, you get to sample Japanese, modern Asian and Mongolian BBQ. Their Japanese à la carte menus look quite extensive, with appetizers, sushi, sashimi, udon and don. If you don't fancy Japanese, you might find something you like in their

We are traveling through Germany and arrived late in Mannheim so we walked in search of late night dining. The East is a very stylish and inviting place not far from the train station. Two of our group are vegetarian and our order was made somewhat skeptically since our waiter spoke no English nor was there an English menu. Our... More

Normal food, and they all taste the same. I love Chinese cuisine but this one is far away from the real chinese food. Overpriced. Service is poor that I regret to visit.

I never would've thought of Germany when thinking of good sushi, but this place is great. I especially enjoy the view when eating outside on a nice day.
