I have lived in Japan for 4 years, and I was surprised to see that sushi is so popular in Ukraine! It is not my favourite sushi restaurant - I prefer Sushiya as sushi are fresher and tastier... however Murakami remains a good option, especially with such a wide choice on the menu. I like their "unagidon" (eel on rice),... More

I consider this place as a fast food place, sushi is not fresh and japanese food is always regular. The prices are reasonable for this kind of quality.

great sushi but service could be better!!!! The variety of sushi is very good, and also the price of this, but the waiters don't care too much about guests.

A regular destination for me during my 4 year stay in Kyiv. Never disappointed. Great food prepared to a high standard, and the staff spoke English for my non-Ukrainian speaking friends and visitors. I love the variation and choice in the menu the most. Good prices and tasty food - and situated next to the Golden Gate monument. Located next... More

The sushi is excellent, so is the soup, and everything appear very fresh and tasty. The service might be faster, but considering sushi does take some time to prepare if you want freshnesh, I find this restaurant worth revisiting.

I've been last time in Murakami Golden gate few days ago. The food it's good ( price wise it's good combination ) but it takes too long time to have the sushi! I've to say that the staff is really friendly and makes you confortable . Curry chicken soup is a must!

Came here for lunch. Food in this restaurant is awful. Curry beef soup looked and tasted like instant powder soup from sachet deluded in hot water with some pieces of beef and vermicelli thrown in in the last moment. Prawn noodles were overcooked, sticky, tasteless and cold. I had to leave it untouched on the plate. California rolls didn't taste... More

The food was very good and the ambience is quite nice. The only problem was with the language and unfortunately there was no menu available in English. However, there are pictures on each item, so if you are familiar with Japanese food you should not have big troubles. Also the staff clarified a couple of doubts that I had so... More
