Expensive, very small portion, my son having ramen, was not ramen, is thin rice noodles, same as 'pad thai' or 'ho fan' in Chinese, very small portion for 13 euro, have to buy sandwich for my son after that.
Don't try the sushi, is roll with noodles instead of rice,
Deco & concept very good, but not the authentic Japanese food. Free wifi but hard to connect, staff was pleasant, not worth for the price, in Barcelona can get easily 10.50 euro for three course menu, even in ramblas area.

This place is awful. Miso ramen is made with miso soup and plastic noodles. One would have thought they new about real Japanese stock for ramen, but clearly not. If you want good ramen in Barcelona there is only one authentic place on Cl Girona. Nothing to do with me, but great ramen!

Cheap fake solutions, bad taste, too fat for Japanese! Waiter playing with phone during busy hours and brings wrong dish.

Give this a skip. I only went because my system could no longer take the wheat based food and more tasteless paela. Insult to Japanese cuisiene. Took forever for food to arrive. Waitress was nes but pleasant, the older one was not. I'm East Asian. A SPANISH COUPLE IN TNE NEXT TABLE SPOKE RUDELY ABOUT ME.
