Never ever had I tasted so fresh sushi and authentic Japanese food ind Denmark before. The service was top notch. The hole family where helping with the service in the restaurant. A really nice and fun place for enjoying a nice dinner with family and friends. I'm differently coming back!

This is an unassuming restaurant, and the decor is understated, the food speaks for itself. We went there due to recommendations on here and I was not disappointed. I had the sashimi boat - woooow! and my husband had Chicken terriyaki bento with two beers it came to £77. The service was faultless - we felt so welcome on arrival,... More

Popped in here as it was directly over the road from the Andersen Hotel where I was staying. This is a small, family run restaurant with a limited menu (which to my mind is a good thing). I had chicken teriyaki bento and it was very tasty. The skin could have been a bit crisper, but it was otherwise good.... More

We had two menus from the list, one with salmon and the other one with chicken. Both were good. The restaurant was not crowded early Friday night.

This was my first experience of a sashimi boat - it was truly fantastic. I had the Moriawase - complete with all the trimmings and my first experiece of Miso soup made from scratch - next level compared to the usual offerings out of a jar. Not cheap at 300kr but top top quality.

Food was fantastic quality, service was amazing and presentation spectacular. It was a little expensive, but most Asian in Europe seems to be. Well worth the visit, would recommend :)

For years, this restaurant is one of Copenhagen’s best-kept secrets and one of my all time favourites! But I guess the word is out. It produces some of the most authentic sushi I’ve ever tried outside Japan at a price well under the chain restaurants of far poorer quality. Everyone I have ever taken there has made it one of...

Bento offers great food, excellent service and is quite affordable. This small restaurant is perhaps not the most excidingly decorated or even particularly romantic. But all that is forgiven as the food and service is absolutely wonderful. This family owned restaurant offer some of the best Japanese food I have eaten outside of Japan/Asia. I suppose this is in part... More

Great quality food and fresh sushi. But you'll pay dearly for Japanese food in Copenhagen. True to Danish design, the ambiance is minimalistic with thoughtful pieces and clean lines. I love the large solid wood tables. We scanned the menu and everything looks authentic. 298 DKK for a pork katsudon bento and 398 DKK for a grilled eel bento. That... More

I love this small and beautiful Japanese Restaurant managed by a Japanese family. The food is great, I prefer the Bento boxes but also I like the Sushi which is great too. Excellent culinary experience and great service, especially of the old lady bringing the tea! Additionally, the decoration and wooden tables are exquisite.
