Creative yet original Japanese food!

It's only the 2nd time since visiting Japan that I can say that I have been in a Japanese restaurant and felt it was true to the experience of Japanese cuisine in Japan. We ordered one of the set menus and were extremely happy with the procession of little edible art pieces. The blend of flavour... read more

If you like Japanese cuisine visit this restaurant and ask for the full degustation menu at the bar.Extraordinary taste, quality and service. Price is on the high end but cheap for this quality of food. Don't miss it.

We discovered Koy Shunka thanks to tripadvisor! As we are big Japanese food lovers and tried many restaurants all over the world, including Japan, we headed to Koy Shunka very skeptical because there are no many authentic Japanese restaurants outside Japan... However , we had a wonderful surprise , everything is Japanese from the waiters setting to the quality of... More

Go for the Yakisoba. Silki,smoky...excelent. maybe the best i have never tried. The nigiris are perfect. dont miss the unaji nigiri. The big makis are too big in my modest opinion. I dont care if they are suposed to be this big...I support evolution! The lights are very soft so it is a perfect place for couples or intimate bussines.... More

This place is incredible, we had the big menú sitting on the bar where you can watch the chefs prepare your food! The food was very good and original, and the service very friendly and professional. The quality of fish and seafood where excellent, its an expensive restaurant but worth it fore sure.

I looooooove Japanese food and sushi and whenever I can, wherever I go I try to go have a little tasting! Of course it is not the same as when you go to Japan but some restaurants are worth going. This is surely one of them! Very high quality, fresh, tasty, very nicely presented... Can't ask much more than that!... More
