We went to Da Kou for lunch because we were really wanting some ramen and gyoza, and we found out that while it was pretty good, it wasn't fantastic. It definitely was good for what you can find in Italy, but the eggs in our ramen were hard boiled instead of soft boiled and the gyoza wrappers were broken before... More

Loved the food and service. These guys know what they're doing! Delicate and nicely balanced flavors. Terrific salmon nigiri!

The beaf was tender, délicieux ! The noodle had the perfect texture and the sushis were so soft they disappeared on the tongue. Gorgeous.

Similar to a lot of reviewers, I've had my share of bisteca fiorentina and spaghetti carbonara. At Da Koi, I had the tempura ramen, dragon roll, crispy tempura roll, a few salmon nigiris, prawn nigiri, gyozas, and a round of beers and a glass of very nice house white wine. All for 95 euros which is pretty inexpensive for three... More

Nice Japanese food: We ordered salmon sashimi, pork ramen, California roll, spider roll, and dragon roll. They are all very tasty. Nice environment. Excellent service, offered and helped us to call a taxi.

After days of Italian food it's nice to try something different. We had dinner at this restaurant and it was a really nice experience. We had a mix sushi platters for the starter and a ramen and chahaan for our main meals. The food came extremely fast considering how busy it got and they were very generous with their portions!...

After a week of Pasta and pizza this was a great relief. The food was good and the ambiance of the restaurant was quiet and separated from the craziness outside. The food was reasonably priced. Perhaps more than what we would have paid for just pasta. Just over €50 for sashimi starter (shared), a main each and an alcoholic beverage... More

After 10 days in Italy surviving on panninis, pasta and pizza, we had to go somewhere different and this turned out to be perfect! The location is only a couple minutes away from the big tourist areas, so its quiet convenient. We ended up having chicken teriyaki, udon, gyoza and one or two other things, and couldn't have been more... More
