I visited this restaurant with my friend and first thing we noticed was how warmly welcomed us one of the staff crew. They were very helpful in explaining all the dishes. There is a big variety of them and I would say that it isn't a cheap restaurant but it is worth its high quality. I would definitely go there... More

Really good food and it really feels like an authentic Japanese restaurant. Especially since it appears that the ones running it are from Japan and it has the interior to match. It is a bit pricey compared to the quality of the food though. Paying 400 DKK for a sashimi and one beer is definitely a bit to much.

The first thing you should know about this place is that it is genuine! It is run by a (lovely) japanese family and they serve real japanese food that tastes like japanese food! This means you can try some things here that you will not find elsewhere in europe easily. - On the other hand, you should bring some openess... More

Ambience : Located in the badement of the Zleep hotel abt 150m away from the Central station, walking distance from Tivoli. Quaint old world Jap charm. Service : The restaurant was quite empty except for a few Jap regulars. The owners, waiters and xhefs were all Jap, a good sign. Food : We ordered the 3 bento sets of teriyaki... More

Food was excellent. A great diversity of typical japanese food culture and taste. It is always a promising sign when most of the restaurant is already full of japanese people...
