Great Japanese kitchen, with very original dishes, all of them extremely good. You can enjoy any kind of dishes. The wines offered are good, the way of ordering is very original (using a magnet table, see picture), the service is really good. I want to recognize the great service we received from Dartina Gómez, she is the one that helped... More

I attended the restaurant following a recommendation. Carlos was very helpful and suggested a couple of dishes which we enjoyed a lot. The sushi was fresh and nicely presented, definitely one of the best in town. Everything was yummy, but to highlight something, the roasted Alaska crab and the Toro tataki with salmon eggs

Carlos was an amazing host who recommended the "Maguro Tataki" which I found delicious! Found the place really cosy and relaxed!

KUO, from the Nomo Group, is an awesome Japanese restaurant with a great 'Mediterranean' influence on some of their dishes. Every time I go to this place I have trouble from choosing from their menu, as I want a taste of everything. Very good price for value also!

Not fancy, not big or luxury, not perfect service but very cosy and the sushi is creative and high quality! It´s quite busy always since it´s small and you can´t reserve so be early 8,30-9 at least if you want a table during the weekend. I keep coming back to this place for the good such and warm atmosphere.

This is a great option to eat japanese food in barcelona! Its in a residential neighborhood close to Sarria, so quite far from downtown night vibe. The decoration is simple but very pretty, the fish seemed to be of very good quality and the menu has a combination of traditional and creative dishes. Overall a very good discovery!

I can honestly say I recently had one of the best meals here I've ever had! Every plate that arrived was simply perfect. My mother is a regular visitor here and now I know why! Wonderful and I can't wait to return!!

I have never been treated so badly in my entire life. The manager on duty insulted my wife and myself. To the point that I was called son of a B.... as I exited the premises. I could not believe it!!! I feel sorry for the owners who probably don't know who is running their business. The name of the... More
