Sushi and more

Excellent place for japanese food. Considering that it was full full full on a Monday evening speaks volumes for the place. The service was friendly but could have been efficienct - but then the restaurant was full. Excellent Sushi... highly recommended - but takes time to prepare on a busy day.

I'm not sure why people think this is an amazing Japanese place. The food wasn't bad, but it's not something that I would write home about. Avoid ordering the mixed tempura as it is quite oily.

Beside various sushi-plates, recommendation is to go for the other dishes on the menu as well: teriyaki, tempura and the noodle-soups. Delicious. Restaurant is pretty busy, partly a bit crowded, make sure that you do a reservation on time.

Fresh made and that means really fresh not circling for houses because there is non of this outdated ugly circle around. You still can watch how they make it in the middle of the food bar. All looks and taste very fresh. They have daily specials. But u can also order what ever u want in your amount. I liked... More

I realy like sushi so was easy to convence me to go to this restaurant.. The result? Amazing... The restaurant is very nice, the sushi is very fresh and the staff is realy helpful. One of the strongest points is the fact that you can see the sushi man preparing everything. One place to return, for sure...

If you like sushi, definitely a place to go while in Erlangen. The food is great, service is nice, one doesn't have to wait for too long for the food to be done. It tends to be full in the evenings so making a reservation is recommended. The price is a bit on the higher end, but well worth it.

I just love Hiro Sakao, it's my favorite restaurant in Erlangen because it's the only one where I've found really tasty and good quality sushi in the region. The fish that is served tastes very good and the sushi rolls are very well done. The warm entries are delicious and the soups are big, which is important. The hostess is... More

The Sushi was really delicious, if you order tea, you get free refills and you can even watch them prepare your food, so it is definitely fresh. On top of that they have rice ice cream which was interesting, but delicious as well.. so 5* for the food, 3,5* for prices, 4* for the interiour. The biggest "negative" point was,... More

I am not into sushi, so I tried several other options in this restaurant, i.e. unusal combination of irish steak with japaneese sauce. Or noodles with shavings from a smoked fish. While the dishes were good, I cannot say they were excelent. Needless to say, all my friends said the sushi was great. BTW - a reservation is a must... More
