Everything In Gaijin just Works. The staff, the menu and the athmosphere. Everything is about high quality and meeting or exceeding the standards. I made my custom menu and didn’t take the ready-made tasting menu. All dishes were excellent. I’ve had similar quality elsewhere too,...More

Nice decor, friendly and helpful staff coupled with well presented and flavourful food equals success. The ribs and the beef were the two highs for me from the mains but all dishes were good (had a couple of starters to begin). Overall, very good, recommend.

Very nice! Loved the food and the vine. Had a tasting menu and it was more than enough food, compared to other places. Great and friendly staff, good drinks and laid back and cosy atmosphere. Try it out!
