Pretty good japanese food

We were impressed by the quality & authenticity of the food. We ordered gyoza, sushi and agedashi tofu & house pickles. Everything was delicious. It was very expensive for Japanese food compared to what you'd pay in Australia. But Gamla Stan was generally lacking in quick cheap eats.

So much better than it looks from the outside. This is not a tourist trap but a genuin place with quality food. Go there and have some traditional asian dishes.

Unfortunately only went on my own so I wasn't able to sample very much of the menu. But the sashimi and gyoza were both excellent. There were only two options for sake on the menu which seemed a bit of a shame to me for a Japanese restaurant! Also a bit on the pricey side - dinner for one, with... More

Coming from Shanghai I am pretty picky about chinese dishes. But the dim sum in this place is the best you can find in town! Don't miss out on the fried pan cakes with spring onion, absolutley delicious.

Very busy restaurant with both tourists and locals. The stir-fried rice noodles (Cantonese kuey teow) with beef was delicious and the best I have ever tried in Europe. The rolled rice noodles (cheong fun) was superb but not warm when served. The other dim sum dishes was delicious except the xiao-long-bao (too dry) was disappointed. I felt the food standard...

A fairly genuine Japanese restaurant but menu strays a bit into other areas. We stuck with traditional Japanese with edamame, gyoza, yakitori, tempura (and Asahi). Very satisfying meal selection that worked well to share. Was a busy Sunday night and wait staff were a bit stretched but overall worked out OK.

We have been to Shogun for dim sum on several occasions over the last two years (i.e. since they changed location to the one on Stora Nygatan), and we have never been disapponted. It is very hard to get good dim sum in Stockholm. Yes, there are a lot of dumpling places in Stockholm (most of them serving goutie (potstickers)... More

The best way to recognize a top notch Asian Restaurant is by its customers. The more elder folks there the better the is place! This is the best place to go to enjoy an amazing Dim Sum experience. Top of the line service and a tasty menu. Has all the necessary dishes and even offer parts of the Japanese cuisine.

I have had dim sum (yam cha) all over the world and this place really can hold it's own compared with Chinatown SF, Chinatown London and Sydney. Only in New York have I had better (the Golden Unicorn). This is one of my favourite restaurants in my home town and I am a regular. The dim sum menu is extensive... More

Had dinner at Shogun the other night and the food was really good and the service excellent. The hot towels before the dinner was a nice touch. We had around ten courses and all of them was good, especially the cow tripe which was a little peppery.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
