Great Japanese with a new speciality to me!

This is a certain style of japanese kitchen where everything is gently deep fried on skewers. You get one serving at the time with sauce to match. There is beef, mushroom, tofu etc. Start of with 10 and some edamames and add a couple at the end if you have room. Very well priced and lots of... read more

And that includes in Japan. A word first on kushiage - it's small bites of ingredients on a skewer, breaded and then fried. Done well, it's neither heavy nor greasy - the chef should spin the skewer to remove any excess oil. Grab the right seat here and you'll see that in action. And speciality Japanese restaurants mainly doesn't mean... More

My husband found this ranked as the best Japanese restaurant in Berlin on a Japanese web site. Since we are fond of kushikatsu -- deep fried meat on skewers, we looked forward to this meal. We opted to eat a la carte because we didn't want to eat just fried foods and so chose the kind of skewers we wanted.... More

Every ingredient was fresh and we enjoyed the variety of tastes & texture. The service was very good, reminding us of being in Japan. The area it's located actually looks like Yuurakucho too. London should have one like this.

Yes, unbelievable as that might sound, before my friend left London, we booked a day return to Berlin just to have dinner here again. While we were staying in Berlin, we were regulars at Kushinoya. The service is superb. I would recommend leaving yourself in the hands of the chef (flagging any dietary restrictions). Don't worry too much about the... More

It's a great experience and you can't find such a place everywhere. So take the chance if you are in Berlin. Otherwise you'll have to fly to Japan.

I have eaten Kushi-Yaki (a variety of deep fried foods (veg and non-veg) on small skewers) in many countries including across Japan. This restaurant matches the best for freshness and authenticity. The staff were all Japanese which is always the mark of excellence as they have great training and are highly attentive to the diners needs. I highly recommend sitting... More

This is one of my favourite kushiage restaurants. I have visited several in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. Kushinoya ranks with the best. Authentic Japanese cuisine prepared by Japanese chefs, served by Japanese waitresses. Treat yourself to some fun by ordering a fixed number of skewers - more can be added at a modest price. The chef will surprise you with... More

The food was really good, very authentic Japanese - a surprise as most Asian restaurants here serve German Asian food. I love specialized restaurants, so this was all about kushiage. A great surprise every time the cook or the waiters would come to bring us the skewers, always something new and always up to whatever the cook had prepared. My... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
