Good place in the old town if you don´t have a lot of time . Their sushi is good tasting and very fresh and their service is fast. It seemed not a typical turist place , lot´s of locals were having lunch .

Definitely in the most touristic part of town, yet very far from a tourist trap. Japanese people in the restaurant, both as customers and workers/manager, which is always a good sign. My husband loves sushi and tells me it was very good; I don't eat fish and can say my dumplings and beef with soy sauce were quite amazing. 16... More

Towards the quieter end of Lilla Nygatan, this restaurant is mainly Japanese but also does some Chinese dishes. After the edamame we went for the sukiyaki. Coked at the table, as it should, the casserole already came with the liquid sukiyaki sauce - so the start using the suet to grease the casserole was left out. The meat was of... More

This was a cozy little restaurant with nice staff. The sushi was tasty, but not the best I've ever tried. One in our company ordered food that he would cook himself, at the table. So he got some sort of stove plate, so that he cooked and ate along with us. That was quite different and cool. If I go... More

We found it on trip advisor and we did not regret it. We ordered gyoza, california rolls and spicy tuna. Everything was delicious! We loved it! The place was nice and the staff very polite. It is definately must visit restaurant if you like nice authentic japanese food. The prices are reasonable, not very low but not too high.

This was once one of the best Japanese restaurants in Stockholm, its not anymore. Its obvious that the current management isn't Japanese, the details that true Japanese chefs bring to the dishes are all gone... Sadly. For good, authentic Japanese cusine i would go elsewhere.

We were impressed by the quality & authenticity of the food. We ordered gyoza, sushi and agedashi tofu & house pickles. Everything was delicious. It was very expensive for Japanese food compared to what you'd pay in Australia. But Gamla Stan was generally lacking in quick cheap eats.

So much better than it looks from the outside. This is not a tourist trap but a genuin place with quality food. Go there and have some traditional asian dishes.

Unfortunately only went on my own so I wasn't able to sample very much of the menu. But the sashimi and gyoza were both excellent. There were only two options for sake on the menu which seemed a bit of a shame to me for a Japanese restaurant! Also a bit on the pricey side - dinner for one, with... More

Coming from Shanghai I am pretty picky about chinese dishes. But the dim sum in this place is the best you can find in town! Don't miss out on the fried pan cakes with spring onion, absolutley delicious.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
