Birthday lunch with my spouse. Nice location in the center of Düsseldorf. Friendly reception. Succulent, light, tastefull, inventive and creative cuisine. We had the 6 course lunch menu which was worth every cent we payed for it. Wine list looked promising but we had champagne by the glass. Recommendable restaurant.

We have been there for a business dinner a few weeks ago. The Nagaya is considered to be one - if not "the" - best Japanese restaurants in Germany. We have never been in Japan, hence can't judge how close or far this is from the original idea. However the food was absolutely impressing and it is the best Japanese... More

Being an addict to japanese food I had to check out this restaurant when visiting the city recently, the service was great, the wines great and the food was everything I expected after reading so much praise about it, the only downside to it and here I agree with plenty of other reviews is the price, as far as I...

We had some sushi/maki that was very good and an exciting creative dessert. Service was impeccable and it was a very good experience.

The presentation was nice but in essence you pay for the quality of the ingredients. The preparation you could do easily yourself. So what sticks is the impression that you overpaid for a good quality meal. Wine was nice and although we originally were pushed for expensive wines, the sommelier provided me with a very good and friendly priced glass... More

I rate three = average but it doesn't mean that Nagaya is an average restaurant, certainly not. Its a top Japanese restaurant with a Michelin star. However when I compare and not only with my other Michelin experiences, the final result is not quite satisfying. Food served a bit in a show off mode while taste stays behind the look,... More

We dropped in for lunch at Nagaya. After being welcomed by the very friendly staff, we were seated at one of the very comfortable tables - they have a bench/chair setup with the table inbetween, which we really liked. The entire place has a very calm and soothing atmosphere: a nice break between frantically rushing around Düsseldorf. Our waiter, whom... More

I've been here for dinner with some customers. 7 person total. We stayed in the semi-private room at the bottom of the restaurant hall. The place is very elegant and formal. The service was good and the food superlative. We had sushi, sashimi, rolls and tempura to the bursting point. We drank beer and water and we paid 720 euro... More

Overall the Nagaya is a cool space for a formal dinner, but I've been to posher places with a more interiguing service. We've been 5 friends - all into fine dining, with tons of culinary experience. The Nagaya only offers the 12-course dinner per table, and before ordering we asked if it'd be possible to adjust the menu, and make... More
