Description: 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.

We visited his restaurant as we were craving sushi & it was close to our hotel. Very happy we did! We ordered 3 rolls of sushi (rainbow, prawn & avo, chicken) and they were all really fresh & delicious. The sushi rolls ranged from €8 right up to €20 each. We had 3 rolls, a coke & water which came to €50 Inc coperto (€5 for 2 people). If you're after a change from the italian food, definitely try niwa.

I ordered take away food: thai food, sushi and temaki.
1) they put sushi and hot that food in the same bag, result sushi was HOT!
2) the temaki was the worst maguro temaki in the history of temaki... tuna was so bad and smelly I could not finish it.

Too much sugar in the thai curries. One of us had massaman and the other green curry, both made with chicken. While both these curries need a bit of sugar, certainly they didn't need so much.The massaman was mostly just potatoes with off cuts of chicken added. The green curry was breast bits that were very much like compacted sawdust.

When we pointed out the sugary nature of our curries to the matron, she just blew us, telling us of course they are sweet.

For jap food, I think pretty good. However Thais, still far from authentic. Overall rate depends on what you wanna hv. Service is ok

It's nice that Florence now boasts a (partly) Thai restaurant however, being the only game in town, they are able to charge a premium. Small portions, high prices, decent quality, conservative selection. Just about what you'd expect from a European city's first Thai restaurant.
