“I loved the setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is in a Lovely setting in a Japanese pavilion sitting in a pond in a Japanese garden.
We went for the sashimi and tataki and tuna avocado tartare and it was all excellent.
Loved the atmosphere, the good quality food and excellent service.

“The best garden in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

If you are looking for a hideaway in the heart of the city here is where you find it. The wonderful Japanese garden, the glowing lights, the wonderful music and the distance from the crowded streets will let you enjoy a real dzen evening. The menu will not surprise you with anything but it is quite delicious.
Make sure that you have a reservation because it is quite crowded and don't pay attention to the snobby behavior of some of the staff members. The place is worth it!

“Great Service and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

World class sushi in a vibrant and energetic atmosphere. The service is very good and the menu is diverse (other options than sushi and Japanese cuisine available).
I dined there with my family - the service is probably the best we've encountered in Bulgaria. The staff is very friendly and efficient.
The sushi is really good and not too expensive. The ambiance is also very nice and lively. The Kempinski Japanese garden is a great place for relaxation during lunch or dinner. Highly recommended!
