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?

Lovely staff, excellent food and charming athmosphere. Please forget to think about prices in restaurants in Kopenhagen as all of them are pretty expensive. This one is absolutely worth going inside and being served with quality food.
