After a short introduction on how things work by a waiter the eating fun begins. The principle is very simple. You chose three dishes from the menu and place your order. In no time at all your order is served and you can dig in. The menu specifies if the dish is spicy, mild or sweet. If you like it... More

As a person who barely follows Asian cuisine trends, I should admit that I'm very impressed with the taste of the food. The elegant service and the classy atmosphere prepares a remarkable leisure time activity: eating!

We were happy to get a table on the terrace on a warm Saturday evening without reservation. Kota Radja seemed fully booked that evening. Staff was kind and inviting and service quite rapid. For a fixed price one can eat up to 15 items, divided in 5 rounds, drinks and dessert are not included. Choice has to be filled out... More

Excellent but busy place to have an exceptional dinner. Combine a great number of smaller bites which together form an excelllent dinner. Also the wines the serve are superb.

Food is okay, but not very special. Even a bit pricy for the how much food you get. Restaurants looks okay but again nothing special.

Spicy for Dutch: not spicy at all. Very popular restaurant, always full, reservations needed in advance for no apparent reason. Food is okay but not great. Service rather slow. Concept is rather innovative. Small dishes to be ordered in five rounds. Drinks are expensive.

I like the sushi they prepare and the ambiance is cozy plus the price is reasonable. This one of the most well known restaurants in Zwolle so make sure you have a reservation before you go, specially in the weekends. The service could be better but I would recommend it.

for sure you need to make a reservation even a month in advance if you want to eat there. But for such a small tiny place with average food/sushi I wouldn't recommend you to do so. There for sure many many better options in zwolle for an "all you can eat". Just ask around!
