Hosokawa offers both sushi and group cooking table Japanese food in a very nicely appointed setting. We went with sushi, but ordered the five course prefix at 60Euro per person. The meal began with an apppetizer (doesn't count as a course)--salmon, three meat pate, and...More

I love sushi and have travelled extensively from Japan. The quality of the fish is really good, but there is little innovation, no extra flavor, just slices of fish, rice and wasabi for the nigiri. The place is really nice. I got there before closing...More
