Good food and ambience - only reservations

Went to Iwase with a German-Japanese couple but could only reserve a place for the next day. So don't forget to reserve. The staff were amenable, the ambience was cosy, and the choice of food was great. The quality is quite good, and my Japanese friend rated it as 'normal' compared to Japanese... read more

I visited Iwase with my colleague a few times during our stay in Frankfurt and everytime was delightful. We came across it by chance on a lunch break and we had a menu with some sashimi, sake, fruits.. It was so good that we came back on the weekend for dinner to try more dishes and they were all delicious.... More

This is a small restaurant, so if you plan to visit it in evening hours I would recommend a reservation. We did not have a reservation and almost did not get a table for two. The sushi is very good, but it is a bit pricey.

After arriving in Frankfurt late, I knew dinner opportunities would be limited, especially Japanese restaurants in Germany. The food was well priced and tasted excellent. Well done!

The best Japanese restaurant that I've been so far in Frankfurt. I was at lunch time and took one of the combo menu, so I think it was good value for money. It's very small. If you are going in a group I would recommend to make a reservation.

Incredible food! Do not let the modest interior get in the way of enjoying wonderful food! We go there every year, our order is getting bigger and bigger because it is just so good!

A really expensive Japanese restaurant. The food is ok but the price is very high for what you get. There are better valued Asian restaurants if you shop around.
