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.

We ate at this restaurant three times. Overall the food is very tasty, large portions. We ordered 1 salad and shared between two, and the main courses we couldn't even finish. The seafood pasta was very good (ordered twice). It is a bit pricey, service is a bit on slow, waiters push you for Tips. We had a light lunch... More

Tonight we had the chicken teriyaki bento box plus some deep fried prawns and rolls. Everything was well presented and tasted delicious. The staff were very considerate and helpful, we can fully recommend this restaurant.

These sushis are so delicate and tasteful. Made by real Japanese with pure tradition. The restaurant is managed and served by a japanese family so kind and the service is perfect. Just a lovely place! No foreign credit cards and price is a bit high but it's worth the quality.

While in Copenhagen, eat the best sushi you will ever have! The food was over-the-top delicious and the presentation was magnificent! I was in awe with everything they served us - and the service itself was by very humble and appreciative native Japanese staff.

Me and my boyfriend went here after looking at recommendations here on yelp. They were known for their bento box as well as their sushi, and we're both a fan of sushi so we're excited! We had a reserved a table and we felt very welcomed by the old japanese guy and the younger waiters. We decided to go for... More

I guess everything is overpriced in Copenhagen. We ordered two Bento boxes, and they were awesome, but the bill came to $120!! And we had tap water to drink!!
