Birthday lunch with my spouse. Nice location in the center of Düsseldorf. Friendly reception. Succulent, light, tastefull, inventive and creative cuisine. We had the 6 course lunch menu which was worth every cent we payed for it.
Wine list looked promising but we had champagne by the glass.

Recommendable restaurant.

We have been there for a business dinner a few weeks ago. The Nagaya is considered to be one - if not "the" - best Japanese restaurants in Germany. We have never been in Japan, hence can't judge how close or far this is from the original idea. However the food was absolutely impressing and it is the best Japanese we have been at. In London or Paris we couldn't find any better (but haven't tried all of them obviously). The combination of flavours, quality of the ingredients and presentation was superb. We let out a number of oohhhs and aahhhs while enjoying the menu and believe the high price was justified. An attentive service and good wine/sake suggestions form the kind sommelier rounded up a beautiful experience.
For a special event I'd definitely recommend this restaurant.
If you are looking "only" for the sushi there are less expensive options along the road.

Being an addict to japanese food I had to check out this restaurant when visiting the city recently,
the service was great, the wines great and the food was everything I expected after reading so much praise about it,
the only downside to it and here I agree with plenty of other reviews is the price, as far as I m concerned it is really over the top in comparison how much ends up on your plate,
but then after all it s Düsseldorf and there the saying goes: if you've got-flaunt it...
So it perfectly fits the cliché, would I return? For a special occasion maybe.

The presentation was nice but in essence you pay for the quality of the ingredients. The preparation you could do easily yourself. So what sticks is the impression that you overpaid for a good quality meal. Wine was nice and although we originally were pushed for expensive wines, the sommelier provided me with a very good and friendly priced glass of wine. So they can adjust.
