great food

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.

Unfortunately it was a very bad experience to visit this terrible restaurant. The stuff has a very bad welcome. The administration accept reservations more than the capability to satisfy the customers. The cookers are less than being able to serve all the tables. I saw one of them leaving the service to drink beer near the cashier. The cooker was... More

I'd never been to a Japanese restaurant, as I don't like sushi and wasn't sure I'd like it. This teppanyaki restaurant changed me! It is so enchanting watching your food being masterfully cooked in front of you! The chefs have a good sense of humour, and the food is really delicious. I had one of the set menus, and loved...

Okay yes this place was a lot different than any other Japanese restaurant we have been. It was nice that the waitresses are wearing a kimono. They speaks English too except the Chefs. We were here for lunch and so we tried the Teppanyaki. You cannot order ala carte, they have a set menu for lunch which we understands. So... More

日本の職人は奇妙なパフォーマンスなどしません。 店名は同じですが以前のオーナーと変わっています。 オーナーは仕事中ずっとお酒を飲んでいます。 Don't be fooled! The Japanese craftsman does not make strange performances. It is different from a former owner.and it is not delicious. The owner has been drinking alcohol during work.

Eating here is not only delicious but also an experience. The staff are so friendly and helpful. You wear an apron as protection. Everybody looks really funny... The food is freshly cooked in front of you. The chefs are very skilled and it is entertaining to watch. All dishes are delicious. The lunch menu is particularly good value for money.... More

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
