We had dinner at this restaurant, which is located in the hotel we are staying. The Hotel Principe, Venice, Italy. The servers are excellent, the atmosphere, excellent, the food, excellent and the prices were excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in Venice looking for great Japanese cuisine .

Fish is always fresh in Venice. Mirai, which moved from their previous kind of weird entrance location have good sushi but way overprice if you know what they pay for fish at the close by market. Nevertheless a good option if you run tire of eating italian in a city with just a handful options for other type of food.

That is good value, not something to complain about, and as far as price is concerned , the priced in the most difficult city... More

From San Marco area had to catch water bus 5.2 for Ferrovia (where train station is). Walking could be tricky. We were looking for an alternative to Italian, and read about Mirai. Our spicy tuna salad and white fish antipasti dishes were way too overwhelming with the amount of fish relative to salad/sides. We could only eat half of each... More

One of the best Japanese restaurants we have ever been to - we went twice in four nights! The first time we had the 10 course degustation menu. It was sublime. First course was a combo of dishes that were instrincally Japan but with an Italian twist. White fish sashimied with a sesame dressing and a "salad" of salmon and... More

We have sushi-loving kids who were dying for sashimi and rolls, so we made the 1.8 Km trek to Mirai to check it out. Nice, modern interior, with hushed lighting. Decent menu repertoire. Fish was fresh and good, albeit with some unwanted connective tissue (my maguro). Tempura only average, but a side green salad was surprise hit with chunks of... More

We heard that the Venetians we supposedly very excited about this place but only tourists were there and everyone seemed bored. The sushi was fresh but nothing special. Adequate, nothing more.

a great japanese restaurant in a city otherwise mostly catering to italian-food-craving tourists. their mixed sushi platters are excellent and creative - we loved the bits that were combined with cream cheese. service is very friendly and attentive - our friend who doesn't eat fish was very obligingly advised on alternative food options (they have veggie sushi platters, tempura and...

One of the two Japanese restaurants in Venice. They serve good sushi and tempura, and has a Japanese sushi chef for the sushi bar. Their sushi is not the typical selections as they add a fusion flavour by incorporating cheese and other local ingredients. It is quite pricey but then it is expected from a Japanese restaurant in Venice.
