We came across this restaurant looking for something different than traditional fair. I have lived in Germany over two years and this is some of the best sushi I have had since I been here. The salmon sashimi rocks.

We wanted to take a break from Bavarian cuisine so we decided to try this restaurant. Service was friendly. The owners are from Japan and they have fallen in love with this historical town so they moved to Rothenburg five years ago. We tried the chicken teriyaki which was better than expected, and we also wanted to try the ramen... More

This restaurant provides a much needed break from the bratwurst, bread, potatoes diet. The sushi is unbelievably fresh, the miso warm and flavorful, the dumplings homey and the sake relatively cheap. Ate here twice and my favorite was the salmon teriyaki.

We chanced upon this little delightful Japanese restaurant and were very impressed with the level of service and quality of food. It’s a restaurant owned by a lovely Japanese lady and her Italian husband. Their daughter is gorgeous and speaks perfect American accented English. They fill up fast so be sure to make dinner reservations if you would like to... More

Managed to talk my family (husband and 14 years old) into coming here, as stated its a small restaurant but has a lovely warm feel to it. The staff were lovely and very efficient. My daughter had the tempura, was slightly greasy compared to others, but that's being picky! The Sushi was lovely and the complementary miso soup before our... More

We decided to go to the best Japanese restaurant in Rothenburg to order take-out food. We were greeted by a friendly (japanese speaking) lady. We told her that we would like to order some take-out food. We were a little dissapointed that (after taking our order) we had to wait for an hour to get it. Usually when you order... More

The food here was absolutely delicious and fresh and the service was beyond reproach. We did not try the sushi as is was cold and rainy and we were in the mood for some hot food, but everything we had was amazing!! I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who loves Japanese or other Asian cuisine.

Fantastic. Restaurants get so monotonous on the German tourist circuit. Even in Rothenburg, where much of the food is good, it's still much the same thing you ate last night in Heidelberg, or the night before in Füssen. Japan Restaurant Louvre is obviously a departure, but a very welcome one. It's a very small place. Seven tables. I'd be surprised... More

We visited this restaurant based on Trip Advisor recommendation. We used to live in Japan and the food served here is authentic - ramen, futomaki, gyoza, katsudon, miso soup, chicken teriyaki. There was one waitress and she did a great job. Turns out this is a popular restaurant in the evening. There are not many tables (7), so definitely make... More
