We spent a delicious evening at Tampopo.

The sushi, sashimi and dim sum were excellent. And what especially liked was that the host was ever so friendly and explained not only the food but as well how it was supposed to be eaten.

So I now know that sushi (maki and nigiri) are indeed finger food and just hold them differently.

She also explained why there was chinese lettuce under the sashimi and it should be eaten together.

Things I ignored until then.

As indicated by others, it's a bit more expensive than the average Japanese restaurant but for this kind of quality, I think it's money well spent.

Fresh and delicious food in a clean and peaceful setting.
But mostly a warm and welcoming hostess and chef!

We often eat their very fresh Japanese lunch for 14 euro or their delicious sushi and sashimi dishes for dinner. The place is simple decorated and has a sunny garden. Very friendly service. The only negative point is that the dishes tend to be a bit small, portions could be half more.

Great dim sum, sushi and sashimi. A bit more expensive than your average Japanese restaurant, bot worthwhile. The interior of the restaurant could be a bit more enchanting.
