Still near the city center, where you can go out at Hauptwache Station and then walk a bit. The place is very small. It reminds you about the typical small Japanese restaurants in Tokyo or Osaka. Great value for the lunch set menu. Free drink...More

Iwase places the emphasis on presentation and environment in a very Japanese fashion, but it's too Baroque for me (I'm more of an izakaya person) and the food didn't stand up to the billing and price. But if you have a special Japanese woman in...More
