What a disappointment. I was looking for a quick (but good) bite. Restaurant was packed with people (who probably dont have taste). Service was quick by the way. The gin tonic was good. 1) crispy chicken: deep fried sticky doug (60-70%) and a small piece of chicken. 2) shrimp tempure: the same as the chicken. Oil from frying inside way... More

We arrived on a busy Sat. night when the only seating available for the four of us was at the bar. We were a little bummed, but the bartender made the whole meal a fun experience! He was also very patient as we grilled him on all the ingredients in the noodle dishes - we were two vegans, one vegetarian,... More

Visited here on a day trip to Haifa to see the temple. It's at the top of the Carmelit so close by. We chose the very good value sushi lunch meal. 2 plates of sushi to share, along with dumplings and spring rolls. 2 diet cokes for drink. All of it was so good - just as good as some... More

I usually stop here when in town. This time I was very disappointed in the service. There was a 15 minute wait because I refused to sit at the bar. There were plenty of tables at 4:00. The edamame was barely warm.

I took my niece and nephew to have lunch today. The restaurant's manager name is Alex. His attitude for clients is well appreciated he is polite warm and gives the best service so the customers will feel like they are sitting to eat at their own home. Food was amazing !!!! My best recommendations to visit at Japanika Haifa

Japanika just can't seem to nail the basics of sushi making, but if you enjoy deep fried sushi for a reasonable price then you may want to give it a go.

This restaurant is NOT kosher, but another branch of the chain, in "Big" strip mall near "checkpost" is, and we highly recommend it. The place is brand-new, we found the food very tasty (we stuck to allegedly Japanese dishes, not that we have any idea about that, and avoided the sushi), lots of parking, and best of all, when asked...

Me and my family visited a lot of times this place - and this is the best sushi restaurant i ever tried. Very beautiful place inside with great view and right location - very recommended for romantic / friends party. After their sushi you can not eat the others.
