great service

there isn't much competition in Köln when it comes to Teppanyaki.. food was good.. service was excellent...if it was cheaper, I would go more often... but the price tag means this is a special occasion only restaurant. There is a few menus to choose from the quality of beef on the most expensive... read more

We didn't try the course menu since it seems too much food for us. So we ordered 7 pieces of Nigiri-Sushi to share. and Charolaiss-Original tenderloin for him (was quite delicious) and Mixed fish for me(prawns, scallop, salmon and white fish) . Quite enough portion to make us full. I am Japanese and I am satisfied with the delicious foods... More

Real Japanese food, cocked live at your table. The raw material are fresh and presented before cooking, the preparation of the dishes is literally a show, the final result is excellent. Location is nice and clean. Service is perfect, all the people are very nice and professional. My only recommendation is no to go too late: they do not accept... More

Our business partner had made a reservation and it was a total of 6 Finnish businessmen enjoying the many different courses prepared in front of you by the designated chef of your table. Really loved the food, the atmosphere, everything about it. Will definitely go again if ever visiting Köln.

we have visited this restaurant for the second time. First time we left very satisfied now we had a mixed feeling. Food is still very well but the overall experience is too expensive for what you get.

Ate here tonight and it was a good experience. We had to wait 20 mins for a table but sat in the bar and enjoyed a couple of cocktails. Geisha and Daitokai were both good although on the small side but for €6 each they were good. We were seated at a communal table which I like as you share... More

We went with a combination of friends and family (total of 11 people) for hibachi. We were really looking forward to dinner because it had great reviews online. However, the service was extremely disorganized and confused. Normally, hibachi restaurants have a large number of people at one table with several different bills, so we thought they would handle our large... More

Good food, good atmosphere but very expensive!!! Ate Japanese food in home town Bruges for half the price that tasted just a little bit better. Been to several restaurants in Cologne now and never had to take a first course because the plates in Cologne are big. Now ate first course, main course and dessert and had some place left... More

Wow! What a great dinning experience. The service was excellent as well. The wait staff was flawless with their quick and friendly service. The meal was very delicious. We had the a la carte menu of avocado rolls, house salad and Charolais beef from Burgundy tenderloin. This was so amazingly tender and delicious, the beef just melted in your mouth.... More
