As a person who barely follows Asian cuisine trends, I should admit that I'm very impressed with the taste of the food. The elegant service and the classy atmosphere prepares a remarkable leisure time activity: eating!

We were happy to get a table on the terrace on a warm Saturday evening without reservation. Kota Radja seemed fully booked that evening. Staff was kind and inviting and service quite rapid. For a fixed price one can eat up to 15 items, divided in 5 rounds, drinks and dessert are not included. Choice has to be filled out... More

We did not place a reservation but we were placed quickly with our small girl although the restaurant was crowded. We felt welcome. Model of ordering was explained good. It is an you can eat policy, I think it´s around 25 EUR for adults. You can order 5 small dishes (sized like tapas) with every course. It´s also explained that... More

Excellent but busy place to have an exceptional dinner. Combine a great number of smaller bites which together form an excelllent dinner. Also the wines the serve are superb.

Food is okay, but not very special. Even a bit pricy for the how much food you get. Restaurants looks okay but again nothing special.

Spicy for Dutch: not spicy at all. Very popular restaurant, always full, reservations needed in advance for no apparent reason. Food is okay but not great. Service rather slow. Concept is rather innovative. Small dishes to be ordered in five rounds. Drinks are expensive.

I like the sushi they prepare and the ambiance is cozy plus the price is reasonable. This one of the most well known restaurants in Zwolle so make sure you have a reservation before you go, specially in the weekends. The service could be better but I would recommend it.

for sure you need to make a reservation even a month in advance if you want to eat there. But for such a small tiny place with average food/sushi I wouldn't recommend you to do so. There for sure many many better options in zwolle for an "all you can eat". Just ask around!

The Kota Ratja know what it's doing. The owners are often on the floor them self's attending the guest if everything is up to their liking and the food quality is just amazing. You get a card where you can fill in 3 dishes per person per round. The dishes can be something like sushi or chicken breast or vegetables... More
