I visit this place every time I am in Barcelona. Sashimi is fabulous but the meat dishes are just a good. Been here many times and really enjoy a seat at the bar such that I can witness the wizardry of the chefs. Highly recommended

Really disappointed. Underground and lacking in atmosphere and air! Really disappointed in the quality of the food. Hot options did not taste fresh and sushi options were basic and uninterested.

The reviews and articles about this place may have made a bag marketing move in my case, i have had expected more. Good enough. But will no go back there again.

This is a delightful experience from start to finish. No need to spoil the movie you will be watching here. Great care, ingredients, technique. Never been to Japan but I guess this is as close as possible.

The second time that I come and I enjoyed a lot again. Highly recommended for a lovely dinner. You can eat Japanese food with Catalan influence, in some dishes.

I didn’t take pictures of the food because I was too busy eating and savouring the food. I arrived without a reservation and it was full and there were people waiting to be seated for their reservation (good sign); everyone had made reservation. The hostess...More

In much of the West, Asian food is ubiquitous; but in Spain, especially Barcelona where haute Catalan cuisine reigns supreme, it is downright adventurous. Shunka, a regionally-rare Japanese eatery whose name means “intense aroma of the season,” harnesses the best of the East-West dichotomy by fusing local ingredients with Japanese-style cooking methods.
