“fabulous Japanese in the middle of Frankfurt”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

This is one of our favorite places to go for sushi, though the rest of the menu is also very good. It's not the cheapest sushi in town nor is it the most expensive, but it is the one which we visit the most. They could stand to invest a little in the decor, but the service is good and the fish is exceptionally fresh so really, who cares!

“Authentic Japanese Izakaya that provides also an interesting set menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2011

Got impressed by the fact that everything is so typically Japanese in this place starting from the sencha green tea served and to the kind attitude of the waiters and sushi meister. Sitting at the counter and following the preparation steps confirmed to me that the sushi was prepared Japanese way similarly to the way it is prepared at Wakuden, Kitcho or Kikunoi.
All dishes were extremely tasty and refined and the service agreable.
Lot of Japanese individuals dine here and this is an additional element.

“Simply tasty sushi.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2011

Family of three had lunch on a Friday without a reservation. Warm greeting and immediately served some green tea which was nice on a brisk morning. Small menu with various meal options. Not only sushi but tempura and noddles. We ordered the sashimi, deluxe sushi, and tempura meal and shared. All was very well prepared and tasty. Very friendly service and overall nice experience at a very good price.

“Interesting Japanese restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2011

I like this restaurant for three reasons:

1) All the food tastes great.
2) There is not just sushi, but other types of interesting Japanese dishes.
3) The staff are very helpful and friendly.

I unfortunately cannot comment on the authenticity of the dishes, having
never visited Japan. Nevertheless, they taste great and seriously unlike
whatever you may find in a random 'asian' chain. The atmosphere is excellent
for the type of thing that this appears to be: a family-run restaurant, concentrating
on the food quality.

“Good Japanese food - not only sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2010

Many people think that Japanese food equals sushi. Mikuni serves sushi - actually very good sushi you know where the tuna just melts in your mouth - but it also serves other less familiair Japanese food. Taste and quality is consistent in everything you order. The staff is quick to help and also to refill your tea (which is quite rare outside Asia). The decoration - will typical Japanese - might turn off some visitors but do not be fooled by it all the other things that matter are more sufficient to make up for it. The price can be expensive though.
