Loved it!

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

Great food, prepared at a table with 8 people from you personal cook. Although expensive it is worth every Euro. You might be surprised that you are seated in groups of 8, so it is not really suited for first ronatic dates. Expect for a full course meal with drinks something around 70 Euro, around 2 h and a experience... More

The restaurant is located a short walk from the Dom, but out of the old city center. The place is huge with about 15 teppan tables at which 7 people can sit. I went here on 07/12/13 at noon and the place was crowded, however you don't get this feeling. Service was very friendly. The food itself was very good.... More

Excellent food, my wife is complicated when it comes to food, the waitress was very helpful, the menu was adapted all her prerequisites were taking into account. Important to know you sit with other customers around a grill table, so privacy is limited. The quality of the food compensated for this.
