“the best japanese canteen in Barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is the kind of restaurant for people who don't like Japanese food. Let me explain: if you think that all the Japanese restaurants serve only raw fish and you really hate it, then, this is your restaurant! Kenji loves cooking the kind of food that you could eat in a canteen (not a posh restaurant); udon noddles, vegetables, stuffed meat and lots of "cooked" meals that you will adore. We've invited many friends to this restaurant and all of them enjoyed the food. Then, next time you visit Barcelona, treat yourself and visit this canteen. I almost forgot, it is cheap!

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

We had an incredible good dinner here. Six courses including macarel in miso sauce, monk fish, sushi and sahsimi, duck and tuna. Perfect atmosphere between locals in this small restaurant. Super friendly personel.
The bill was an incredible 70 euros fore six courses, water, coffee and a bottle of lovely verdejo.

“Amazing fusion food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

I would suggest the same we did: order lots of different bites, all to share. We had some really fresh fish sushi and sashimi and then many cooked specialities, like secretos de porco (pork meat) with foie gras and humid rice with fish. Everything was wonderfull and staff is really kind.
