The Momotaro restaurants has not only freshly made and original taste sushi but also a wide range of REAL japanese food! To say it short: it's hard to get a table without reservation - no matter which day of the week. Highly recommended from someone who lives in Cologne since a long time and has travelled to Japan many many... More

Momotaro serves great and definitely authentic Japanese food! I couldnt be happier when I saw Una Chirashi on the menu, that is my all time favorite. Their sushi is just as good if not better, sashimi was so soft and fresh, or as my boyfriend put it, it felt like tongue kiss when you have a piece of sashimi in... More

I went here with a Japanese friend who recommended it - always a good sign. We went at lunchtime and had one of the specials which included soup, sushi and various items like tempura and prawns. it is a very small place, so it's best to reserve. We all found the food delicious, fresh and authentic. To be recommended for... More

We've been regular guests at Momotaro since 2004 and can testify to the superb reliable quality of the sushis and makis, which are the best we've had in Cologne - and as huge sushi fans, we've tried all the serious Japanese restaurants here. Along with his family and friendly staff, Ryoji, the owner whom we've gotten to know through our... More

Small place, very fresh fish and great sushi. My favouriite Sushi place in Cologne. Better reserve a table since the place cannot host more than 20 people. Momotaro is real Japanses without any fancy crap. The location is very central close to the most important shopping street Ehrenstrasse in Cologne, thus also good to visit after a Saturday shoping tour.... More

A very traditional Japanese restaurant not far from the main shopping streets of Cologne. This is a small place that can seat about 25 people. The sushi master does his magic behind a small counter with a few extra seats.
