When we entered to the restaurant I was very surprised by the atmosphere, people was sitting beside each other, having a chat alongside a glass of sake and the most important thing... The chef and crew were japanese! We had two platters with different kinds of sushi and all of them were awesome. The ingredients were fresh and the fish... More

The restaurante is situated close to the city center, but it's so small that you can pass over without seeing it. Inside is very small, 20 - 25 sitting place, is not fashion furnished, like on usual immagination of a japanese restaurant. The staff is very kind and ready to assist you. The food, both raw and cooked, have a... More

situated in the centre of Frankfurt, this excellent restaurant offers an authentic japanese cuisine. Only drawback in this place is that due to the small size, you might end up waiting to have a place to sit. Reservation is recommended and you should rather consider goung in small groups.

Authentic jap restaurant, very small,just a few tables - pre booking is essential. Sashimi is very good quality. Go for the food, not the atmosphere. Not for big groups.

Small but typical Japanese restaurant (not pretty but authentic) offers several prix fixe lunch menus. Sitting at the counter I was able to convince the chef to order sushi outside the menus. Rice was very good in taste, texture and temperature. Fish selection limited but more than most places in Germany. Fish was very good quality - even the toro... More

It's well worth standing in the queue and waiting to eat here. Delicious food, beautifully presented with quick and friendly service.

I only managed to have a taste of the food on my third visit to the restaurant. Located at a tiny obscure corner around Vibeler Strasse, it was full-house when I first visited, and closed the second time I visit. Be sure to reach early like 11.30am for lunch, just like what I did on my 3rd visit. Service was... More

Went here to have a dinner. it was full when I came, but they found one place for me (better to book in advance!) It is a very small and narrow restaurant with an amazing authentic Japanese atmosphere. Food was great (miso soup, seaweeds salad, sushi, California roll), fish was fresh indeed. Highly Recommend to visit.
