The restaurant is located in a quiet neighbourhood and has a very traditional and homely feel to it. The food though is extremely innovative and tasty, subtly combining Japanese influences. Every course was beautifully plated and tasted exceptional. The chef was personable and came to the table and introduced himself and also prepared a special meal for our young daughter.... More

Gained their first star this year and must be destined for more as the food was wonderful and amongst the best we have had.

Due to a flight delay we arrived 40 minutes late at the Werneckhof for a business dinner but a very friendly service team made us feel relaxed from the moment we entered the restaurant, especially as Head Chef Nakamura San came to our table shortly afterwards and greeted us in our mother tongue i.e. Luxembourgish!!

When you enter the Restaurant - located in a small street of Schwabing - you feel home: no upscale decoration but tables with white linen set in a medium large room which breezes an elegant but not stylish atmosphere. Tohru Nakamura and his team offers 2 different menus - inspired by the art of japanese cooking, fusioned with western components.... More

A trip down memory lane as this was a favourite venue more than 20 years ago when it was a French restaurant. The room was almost identical from that time and has aged well, unlike me. At first the menu was a bit confusing but the head chef visited the table before we ordered and explained the mix of Japanese,... More

This is an outstanding restaurant, in fact the best restaurant we have visited in Munich. The dishes are a joy to the eyes and to the palate, with so many different ingredients, which mesh fantastically, and superbly presented. Service is extremely professional and friendly.

Went to celebrate a family birthday. The menu they offer was of outstanding quality. Definitely deserves its star. Unfortunately, no help with the wine was offered (and I probably wouldn't have taken the very young servers seriously on a recommendation), but I didn't really ask either. Ended up choosing a random St. Emillion, which turned out wonderful and even very... More

From the moment you walk in things are different... The staff smile and enjoy what they're doing, the Chef and the Sommelier come to your table and shake your hand.
