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

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

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.
