Very small place. I callled to book a table and they said that I should just come. At arrival I saw that the table was not ready. After minutes of waiting outside in the cold weather I finnaly got in. Average sushi, arrogant staff.

Since I am Japanese I feel very qualified to say that Iwase serves excellent Japanese food. The sashimi was out of this world fresh! Small hole in wall but great food and service.

Very good sushi, not only by Germany standards but it satisfied my Asian tastes too! Its a small restaurant, and the tables and sushi bar are always full so you'll definitely need reservations.
