“Very good japanese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2015

I visited Iwase with my colleague a few times during our stay in Frankfurt and everytime was delightful. We came across it by chance on a lunch break and we had a menu with some sashimi, sake, fruits.. It was so good that we came back on the weekend for dinner to try more dishes and they were all delicious.
Staff is very nice and price is not so expensive for japanes standards. Totally recommended.

“Real Japanese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2015

I went to Iwase because a friend of mine (Japanese) told me I was a good restaurant.
The restaurant is simple, small but the sushi IS GOOOOOODD, fresh, the sake is delicious... I have only compliments to talk about this restaurant.
I saw people saying was expensive, I have been for lunch paid 17 euros( soup, salada, sake, sushi and fruits) For me the price was good. I ll comeback for sure

“Great food, a bit pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2015

This is a small restaurant, so if you plan to visit it in evening hours I would recommend a reservation. We did not have a reservation and almost did not get a table for two. The sushi is very good, but it is a bit pricey.

“A pleasant surprise ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2014

After arriving in Frankfurt late, I knew dinner opportunities would be limited, especially Japanese restaurants in Germany. The food was well priced and tasted excellent. Well done!
