“Best Asian food in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

We know this restaurant well. Visited again with my wife and son in March and once again we had the pleasure of being served wonderful food with excellent friendly service. Not the cheapest restaurant but well worth a visit

“No bad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

This is a really posh restaurant and expensive, but we are talking about Japanese food. The service was really good and the food not bad.

“Not bad, but not special either”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2013

Went there as Monkey's West has become one of the fine dining options in Duesseldorf and expected a similar level of food quality in the Eastern part of the dining complex.

We started our meals with a selection of appetizers. The Satay were mediocre, the Wan Tan too, and the Salmon & Tuna tartare no revelation either. As main course I had the deep fried sea bream. Although it wasn't bad, it was supposed to be very spicy. Either there was a mistake on the menu, or they forgot some essential ingredients, as it came not spicy it all. As dessert I had the pineapple creme brulee, which I liked.

The service was acceptable, but not great. The ambience is modern and simple, but feels comfortable.

If there was a possibility of giving the restaurant a 3.5 point rating, this would be on the spot. It's above average, but definitely not very good. Their take on Asian cuisine simply is in the middle of nowhere. Neither authentic, nor a creative or inspiring fusion.
