Had a fish boat which is enough for two not so hungry people. We could get more rice when asked. We booked a table on a Friday night, thankfully, since the place was full.

Cosy little spot with friendly service, however the food did miss the mark. In contrast to most restaurants in CPH, prices are very reasonable, but the food was heavily under seasoned and lacked quality.

Had a dinner here on my own. Very cosy authentic place, nice interior and ambiance. The food was excellent and the service was good and not over the top. Would definitely recommend.

Relatively small place with good quality Japanese Kitchen. Cozy place with friendly and kind service. Well worth a visit - food presented very well for the eye as well as the stomach!

We ordered tempura Udon and Unary(eel). Unary was great but Udon was so bad. Soup of udon has no taste and shrimp was fried too much. The service was good but all the matter is always food, right?
