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.

Classic small Japanese restaurant, very close to the centre of town. No english menu, but then we are in Germany! Two chaps behind the counter spoke perfect English, so I just ordered what I fancied. Crisp and fresh tempura, Cold edamame beans??? Fresh, if a little unadventurous sashimi. Not too expensive, but very cosy. Will visit again next time I'm... More

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

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.
