Loved my first visit. Not outstanding but amazing for the price and options. 5 🌟 because the price is right, the preparations are fine, although the sushi was a bit wide. Loved the vegetable soup the odrinks and the gyozas.

If you are looking for an authentic Japanese restaurant, this is the place to be. All food is really good. A lot of Japanese and Asian people come to eat here, which means is good and original food.

You can hear from Japanese foodies and locals that the best curry in the city can be found in daikoku at very friendly prices. Their prices have gone up over the years, but this is still a friendly option to have lunch or dinner before going for drinks. Their curry is amazing, their sushi is great and they have saba...

As we arrived the waiters were kind although there's an opportunity there for improvement. We were quickly told to choose any table, and then asked if we wanted something to drink. My girlfriend and I ordered a mixed sashimi dish and the house's fried rice, it was plentiful! We weren't able to finish it all, yet I was astonished by... More

....but service could be better. They don't have cold sodas, unless you serve them on ice, which undoubtedly makes it flat. Sashimi and sushi are well prepared. The overall ambiance resembles Japanese restaurants in Tokyo.

Visited this place on business. The food was good considering other japanese food restaurants in Mexico City. Prices were reasonable. I liked the mushroom soup but was not impressed with the rolls. Also tried the sashimi which had been frozen. I would return to try other ítems in the menu if in the Reforma Avenue area again.

My husband is Japanese and I lived in Tokyo for 4 years before moving here, so we often want some Japanese food to eat. We often go to Daikoku on the weekends because it serves good food that tastes authentic. I'm surprised at all the negative reviews here, we have eaten here at least 10-15 times and while the service... More
