After a lot of pizza and pasta a change was in need and we found a gorgeous Thai and Japanese restaurant in Florence. Outside of the centre of Florence this is well worth a visit. We didn't have anything off the Japanese menu but the...More

A friend met us in Florence and we were looking for diversity because he couldn't have sushi and this place was perfect. The Thai food was wonderful as well as their specialty sushi rolls. The rolls were on the more expensive side, that was the...More

We had a very disappointing meal at Niwa. The service was (with one exception) pretty awful - unfriendly, abrupt and devoid of charm. I had the beef Raman and it was awful - tasted like pot noodle, no flavour and bizarrely mixed with store-cuboard curry...More

The cuisine is Asian, Thai, and Indian. The restaurant is well appointed and clean. The lunch menu is fairly limited, but reasonably priced. The service can be slow. Reasonably value at about EUR 10 for lunch.

Like a garden (this is the origin of the name), in a friendly atmosphere of light, colours and scents. A relaxing environment where you can taste the refined flavours of the Japanese cuisine and the less known but equally sublime of the Thai cuisine. A journey to a corner of modern Asia, to be spent in the intimacy in the room with tatami booths or under the magic of colours and stillness in the room with the vertical garden in search of ancient flavors of the Eastern cuisine.
