Don't eat Ramen because they make the Ramen soup just with Doha sauce and water!!!!!Everyone knows that the soup must be made with meat soup.If you wanna try just go supermarket and buy a bottle of soja sauce,mix it with hot water then some noodle.Make it!! 非要打中文OK,这里的拉面汤用酱油和开水直接放一起就完事儿了,太唬人了,还卖十二欧一碗,面是泡面,整个一点诚意都没有,是我吃过的最不用心的拉面

After a morning sightseeing in Santiago de Compostella we were debating where to lunch when at a convenient corner near La Salle parking where the car was, we saw an intriguing sign "Izakaya Gallega". Well being fond of the Japanese pub food outlets in the first part of the name we decided to give it a try. Best decision for... More

We were told at 3:00 PM that they were full with no service available for the rest of the day. I've never heard such a thing at a restaurant. Having read some of the reviews, i now understand the comments about poor service. Too bad there aren't many more options for Japanese food in Santiago.

Having walked for over a month on the Camino I was desperate for some Asian-type food and some rice that wasn't paella. This restaurant was recommended and it didn't disappoint. It is small and cosy and the food was delicious. We went there for lunch. I had the Mixed Tempura (prawns and vegetables) and it was fab. Then one of... More

I tried to book a table in advance, but no answer. I called the second they opened, but were told that we couldn't come for another 30 minutes. Some of us ordered a set menu, and some ordered a selection of sushi. The food arrived extremely slowly, and we were never actually eating at the same time. It was way... More

30 days of Camino. 30 days of pilgrims food. What a refreshing delight this restaurant was. Prawn tempura out of this world. Gyoza were magnificent. Sushi platter great, but only one piece of tuna. Husband very happy with unagi. Fabulous!!!

We ate lunch here after visiting the two nearby museums (which are great!). I had the menu del dia which was a great deal at €9.50. It included market tempura (veggies, fish and calamar) which was crispy and perfect. The second dish was a combo sushi plate, super fresh and also delicious. The menu also came with a drink, alcoholic... More

Starting from the premises that I'm a great sushi eater and that I've been leaving in Santiago for a few years, this place is certainly the best you can find there for this kind of cuisine. Sushi is not the traditional one, but fish and seafood are extremely fresh and good (Galicia is a great seafood place in general). So,... More
