The sushi we had was all delicious and you could taste that the fish was superb quality. The udon noodles were also really nice. We started off with the miso aubergine which were also great. Overall we loved every single dish and will return!

Just from the moment you arrive you know it is the real thing. All the Japanese cooks preparing ingredients and getting ready. Afterwards they just keep working like Swiss watches. Preparing things to perfection. Miso soup wow, tempura of gambas and vegetables (better than Nobu),...More

Though the place is consistently packed, the food was far from being very good. The chicken yakitori was meagre and the chicken pieces were second-rate, the chicken was grilled but barely tasted of yakitori sauce. The Toro nigiri, both the seared and raw were poorly...More

In much of the West, Asian food is ubiquitous; but in Spain, especially Barcelona where haute Catalan cuisine reigns supreme, it is downright adventurous. Shunka, a regionally-rare Japanese eatery whose name means “intense aroma of the season,” harnesses the best of the East-West dichotomy by fusing local ingredients with Japanese-style cooking methods.
