Japanese food away from the maddening crowds

If you want to go to a Japanese restaurant where 90% of the clientele is Japanese, this is the place for you. It's located in the basement level of the Diplomat Hotel. You can get there by cab or by the metro. If going by the latter, it's just one or two blocks away from the Dejvicka stop on the... read more

The atmosphere is really as in restaurant in Japan, even Karaoke machine is there :) During our meal all the staff spoke Japanese, which is helpful. The choice of food is wide, you even find sukiyaki or konomiyaki on the menu. We had a wide choice of meals, from udon through sushi to Japanese curry. All good apart from rice... More

My first experience in a Japanese restaurant, and a good one. The menu is a little confusing if you have never been there before, but luckily one of my friends regularly eats Japanese and was able to help me with it. Nonetheless, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and I'm sure they would have explained if I had asked.... More

I are here while staying at the hotel situated above it. The restaurant is in the basement and was quite intimidating at first. The waiting staff were very helpful in helping us choose our meals. I chose a noodle dish which was very fresh and flavoursome. It wasn't something I'd usually choose but glad I did. The beer was reasonably... More

Taste of Japan in Prague ? go to Katsura. I was amazed at the food, variety and taste, excellent service and courtesy. Have been to many Japanese all over Europe, Katsura steals the show. Highly recommendable and would definitely visit on my next trip.

Katsura (located on underground foor in Hotel Diplomat) is one of the few places in Prague I frequent when I feel like having some good Japanese meal. Mind you - not sushi. If you want sushi, there are better places to go. Not that Katsura sushi wouldn't be good, but they have better things to offer: apart from good tempura... More

Long standing japanese restaurant that is popular with Japanese community. Menu runs usual gamut of both sushi world to tempuras etc. all prepared well enough although by now they have czech chef. Service pleasant and attentive. Problem is that unless you are staying in the actual hotel, you really wouldn't be bothered going there. Down in a basement, no light... More

Good food, good service but seriously let down by the general atmosphere and the fact they still allowed people to smoke. It's a restaurant people and not everyone enjoys breathing secondhand smoke, take a leap into the 21th century or shut the place down.
