If you like teppanyaki, this is a place you should go. The best choice and value for money is one of their pre-set menus. Choice of wine is also good and some of cooks are really funny and make a good show. We enjoyed the evening there.

If like me you are continually frustrated to find that most Japanese restaurants in Europe are very poor imitations of the real thing, then be prepared to be surprised. I visited with 5 Japanese colleague's and they loved it. This restaurant is Japanese owned and most of the staff are Japanese. The food wss delicious, very well presented and the... More

Without a doubt the best place in Nürnberg to enjoy japanese food. The place offers authentic Teppanyaki cooking, staff is very friendly, service is efficient and the food is very fresh and just outstanding. I went for the third time in 5 years to this restaurant and it has always been very satisfactory to dine here. A lot of Japanese... More

I was since long in at a Japanese in Nuremberg. This time we've been twelve business and international people and enjoyed this evening very much. We had a separate room and all the food was prepared in front of us by two cooks. They made some times also good chokes and enjoyed to entertain us with their show. The waiters... More

A large group of us went here after an expo at the messe one evening. Set menu, most of us opted for the lower cost 55EUR menu, which was really good, the chef came out with what looked like a whole fillet of beef for us. He interacted with us and joined in with some friendly banter. This place is... More

Tepanyaki only, with a "chef" who couldn't be bothered to show that cooking here could be fun. Very expensive, quality of the food was just OK.

I would have considered to give a different overall value, as "very good", if that time would have been my first meal in this place. Restaurant, staff and food are very nice and they offer a quite good variety of Japanese food. What I consider worse than other meals I had in this place is the portion/cost ratio. Being an... More
