If you do not speak/read any German or Japanese ....you may not want to choose this place. The food was ok (would not rave about it ) strongly disagree with the #6 rating, the prices doesn't match the quality of the food..udon with three pieces of tempura was 20 dollars (15 euro), Very tiny (20 people can fit max), must make reservation, overall good waitress service.

After reading several reviews here we decided to for Fujiwara - and it was a great evening. The restaurant is indeed quite small - but cosy in that somewhat funny Japanese way. The staff and chef are all Japanese which only adds to the authenticity.

All of our food was great - not the best sushi ever - but really good - very very fresh. Everything is made fresh to order by the chef who resides in a corner of the restaurant. We did have a few Nigiris not compact enough (fell too easily apart) - but all in all a really good experience. They are not shy on the wasabi on nigiris and in the maki's which I really like - but be aware if you don't!

Only 4 star rating as NO Japanese beer was available - only German. I like German beer - but when having sushi I like Japanese beer (such as Kirin or Sapporo). Can't them 5 stars without Japanese beer :-)

Staff was - as most Japanese are - very humble and very very friendly and smiling.

If you are in Frankfurt for business or pleasure and feel like taking a break from the sausages, potatoes and beer, consider a bite of Japan. This little gem, tucked in a quite corner of the Sachsenhausen neighborhood (across the river from the city center), gets crowded easily but it is worth the wait. Better yet, do it like the Germans and call ahead to reserve. The couple that owns the place is there every night (she hosts, he slices the sushi) backed by a small friendly staff. You know a place is authentic when people from the country the food originates from go there to eat. And that's the case with Fujiwara. On any given night about fifty percent of the patrons are Japanese. The sushi is fresh and expertly prepared, but the menu is full of many more surprises to explore.

Very friendly people, nice food at fair prices. We were 5 people and spent an average of€30 per person including drinks. The place is very small so book in advance.

We went to this restaurant several times. My wife is Japanese and she says this is the best place in Frankfurt to go to. I liked the frozen tempura ice the best as a desert. Prices are not low but quality is very good. During the working week they have lunch set menus at very reasonable prices.
