We came here because I read the great reviews on TripAdvisor, but I feel disappointed ! It is not a real Japanese food. The sushi and ramen is okay, but beef udon is weird, it just taste like Chinese style noodle beef. The worst thing is, we order a small bottle of sake which charge us 25€, but It taste... More

We went to this place after many days of only Italian food. The sushi and gyozas were great but the rice with curry pork very bland. Service was good and they spoke English. Great location. 39euro for two mains, one appetizer and water.

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

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!...
