Simply the best Japanese restaurant in Erlangen. They are fast, gentle and the menu is clear and full of options. Good also for vegetarian. The food is good and nice to see. Not to expensive (44€ two person with a glass of wine). Not many choice for the dessert, but it's a Japanese restaurant and so it's part of the... More

This place was incredibly busy when we came, and people who live in the city say it's always the same -- so you would be wise to make reservations! We were a small group of 7 and ordered a range of dishes. The sushi is good, and we can attest to how good the other dishes are as well. Again,... More

The arrangements of the Sushi plates (in little boats) is very nice, also the Sushi creations are very interesting and tasty, there is something for everyone... Best price at around 13:30, when the run for lunch is over (only with reservation really possible). Also for dinner the price is reasonable though...

Best Sushi restaurant in Franconia. Great food, but service and ambient is getting worse unfortunately. Always full - reservation required.

been coming here for few years and they have recently introduced two sittings. either 18,30 or 20,00. the first is too early and you need to leave by 20,00. so, a bit of pressure to keep an eye on the clock. service sadly has deteriorated. the food is always delicious, interesting and varied menu.

Very sophisticated variety of Sushis in the menu and very good service. Good food experience guaranteed. Please reserve a table before you go else you got to wait for a bit of time as this place is a bit crowdy at times.

I arrived on a whim on Saturday night without a booking. Altough the place was busy I was offered a place at the 'bar' and the waiter took my order promptly. I had a sush/sashimi combination and a sake. The food was very very nice and fresh, in particular the tuna and salmon sashimi was very good. They have a... More
