“Just ok”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

I had been to that place twice before and loved the food, so during my last visit to Berlin thought it would be a good idea to give it a try again. Overall, I found the food ok, though not as delicious as I remember it from previous times - but this may well be just the distance of time. They have a good selection of clearly marked vegetarian dishes in all parts of the menu. The gyoza were very tasty too. Service was lacking in the politeness department but this may not be a sufficient deterrent. I will probably be back there again next time - but probably because I will be staying in the area again.

Came to Germany and only ate Asian cuisine. This was my least favorite of the three places we tried. The gyoza was good, but the Yakisoba was just fair. Nothing special. The ramen was good according to the table, but I don't think anyone was blown away.

“最低・おつりをごまかしてきた//poor・ Did they cheat the change?”
Reviewed April 16, 2013




I went to eat for lunch.
Store is difficult to say with clean, the clerk are not good
There are only thin noodles, and noodles boiled just a bonus.
I suspect "knowingly?" in accounting

" deception on Euro 10"

No have value to pay a service cahrge, and they are not worth getting
"the service charge".
I will never go there, and never recommend to people this "MAKOTO".

“日本のラーメンとはかけ離れている/It's really too far form real Japanese Rame(noodle with soup)!”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

醤油、塩,味噌 味スープでこの麺は無いでしょ!! このストレート細麺は九州豚骨ラーメンにしか合いません。 またディナーセットで注文した餃子(5~6個)は皮が固くとても完食出来ず残しました。
Texture of noodle does not fit to the soup of their soya souce taste, salt taste and soya bean paste taste at all. their noodle will be fit only to "Kyushyu Ramen"which is tipical noodle soup at Kyushyu area(south island of Japan).
Skin of Gyoza(dumpling) was too hard compare with Japanese standard which must be improved.
I really want to tell them that Noodle, soup and Gyoza's skin should be improved to avoid misunderstanding of real Japanese taste.
