Small but typical Japanese restaurant (not pretty but authentic) offers several prix fixe lunch menus. Sitting at the counter I was able to convince the chef to order sushi outside the menus. Rice was very good in taste, texture and temperature. Fish selection limited but more than most places in Germany. Fish was very good quality - even the toro was melt in your mouth. Fish could have been slightly less cold to harmonize better overall. All in all I was very happy and will come back when in Frankfurt.

It's well worth standing in the queue and waiting to eat here. Delicious food, beautifully presented with quick and friendly service.

I only managed to have a taste of the food on my third visit to the restaurant. Located at a tiny obscure corner around Vibeler Strasse, it was full-house when I first visited, and closed the second time I visit. Be sure to reach early like 11.30am for lunch, just like what I did on my 3rd visit. Service was prompt and cordial, staff were friendly and smiley :) Food was really really good. Ordered the sushi set, and my colleague the sashimi set. The sashimi was so fresh and i love the fishy taste. Portion was ok. Both sets were awesome, came with a salad side, miso soup and fruits. Will be visiting again to try the udon+sushi set some time during lunch!
