Great Japanese food in Düsseldorf! Small restaurant, but good service and decoration. Nice for those who enjoy ramen! Highly recommended!

I've eaten already twice here and the food is simply delicious (for my taste). Gyoza is fantastic, also the ramen soup (tokusei miso). Usually there's a waiting line outside, but I arrived towards 21:00 and it was ok. Service was correct and quite fast.

Kinda a fusion restaurant instead. Super crowded during dinner time. Food wise, portion was huge. Ramen and gyoza was nice. Worth a try if around the area.

We had a two hour layover between trains, and went to Naniwa to get a late dinner. Our main concern was timing, we didn't want to miss our next train. The walk from Düsseldorf's main station is about ten minutes at a brisk pace, not bad at all. There was a line out the door for seating that didn't seem... More

This place is the best Japanese place in the Dusseldorf and surrounding. I am always going there when I am in the city. Highly recommending. Every thing is amazing there. Real Japanese cooks and food, like in Japan.

I might have been unlucky but...really average. Just came out of there. They didn't have a couple of dishes I asked for (wonton soup and beef teriyaki), chose the gyoza, I read they were very good, not really. And the chicken fried rice? Really bland, and the chicken still had bits of white/yellow fat stuck to it. Not acceptable. I... More

I found gyoza, chicken teriyaki and even ramen very tasty, but I prefer Takumi for all three, especially for gyoza. Our clothes smelled after a 40min stay, so it was, unfortunately, not very well air conditioned. It was nice that they took our orders while we were still in the queue, so it saved time.

We loved it, but not only for the ramen but also for the starters (teriyaki, spinach with sesame, bypass). During the winter you can save waiting time by opting to have lunch outside. We will be back.
