I keep on reading and hearing about what an amazing restaurant this one is. I have been here several times, and I must say I have mixed feelings about this place. One the one hand the service is terrible (not Japs, only Chinese), the place is humid, noisy and not appealing at all, decor is lame and the person who... More

Its the second time we have dinner here and it just gets better. Espardenyes, vieiras, entrecotte and of course the best toro sashimi I have ever had are must-have dishes. The food has a fantastic price-quality ratio (between 40€ and 50€ pp) and the wine has a very reasonable price from (bottles from 10€ to 25€ aprox). Difficult to book... More

This is one of the most popular Japanese restaurant in BCN but to my opinion it isn't one of the best. I use to visit several times per year this restaurant and, to my opinion, in general the quality of the food is good. The best thing about it is that you can taste some Japanese dishes or condiments that... More

This is a great place to have sushi, and would be rated high any place (and not only in Barcelona which has only a few Japanese places) The sashimi we had was outstanding! Reservation are a MUST.

Me and my girlfriend eat at Shunka every time we are in Barcelona. This small little Japanese restaurant really is a special place. Its open kitchen offers seats at the bar where you can watch the chefs create fantastic sushi that just melts in the mouth, or you can sit at a table and be attended by the courtious polite... More

I found this restaurant thanks to the reviews on the internet. I've been to many japanese Restaurants so i wanted to give it a try. The atmosphere is nice, quite typical for a japanese restaurant. The Price is in line with most of the other and the Quality is very good. The Service is also fast and friendly.

The restaurant was packed with Japanese business men on my visit so I thought the food would be really good. The sushi was good and fresh but Tokyo prices and we had to order more half way through because the portions were really small. The service was ok, the atmosphere was ok, the food was good but the bill was... More

The sushi was quite nice. The price/quality ratio was not ok. The interior of the restaurant does not match price. Quite a disapointment. Furthermore there was a smell of cloak. We cant recommend the place
