At 10Best, we're always on the lookout for Berlin's best restaurants, and while we appreciate places that have a broad culinary range, we can't help but adore restaurants that specialize in a given cuisine. When we're in the mood for Asian food in Berlin, we head to Ostwind - a reader favorite - or we count on Ho Lin Wah's solid track record and consistently great dishes. You'll find these places - and any of the restaurants on our list - to be fantastic options for Asian cuisine, and if you're looking to concentrate your efforts, start with the vibrant Charlottenburg – Wilmersdorf area.

Delicious japanese cuisine and great service, centrally located in Rosenthaler platz offering daily happy hour until 11pm with 50% off a selection of menu options.

Tim Raue Berlin is the brainchild of Germany's top celebrity chef of the eponymous name. TR Berlin bears the distinction of being the only Berlin restaurant receiving two Michelin stars – this award is made all the more distinguishing because Berlin as a city has only a handful of Michelin rated restaurants. Raue is especially known for his innovative Asian fusion cuisine and the Chinese stamp is unmistakably stamped all over the refined menu: there is the six course, so-called "Unique Menu," the four course "Winter Menu," in addition to a la carte options and an extensive and impressive wine list. It must be conceded that relative to other restaurants on this list, Tim Raue Berlin is decidedly upscale and very much a fine-dining experience. For this reason, one should also expect to pay - and dress - accordingly.

Mr. Hai operates two restaurants - Kabuki and Shabuki, respectively, that are situated in one house at Olivaer Platz. Both restaurants are excellent. The sushi at Kabuki is particular is some of the best and most innovative in Berlin. The sake cocktails are very tasty as well. Kampai!

Miyaki is new Japanese kid on the block in friedrichshain, and it is a cut above the rest. The soysauce is homemade, the rice is not refrigerated, and the seafood is fresh. You aren't going to get any out of the ordinary seafood here, but for the standards, this place has taken the top spot for sushi in Friedrichshain, especially for those of the vegetarian persuasion.

Sasaya serves up fresh and very authentic Japanese food in a simple and sleek environment in Prenzlauer Berg. Sasaya is always worth a visit. The sushi is excellent; there is a very good selection and an extensive selection of sake. The price to quality ratio is amazing quite good here.

This list of cocktails and the sushi menu are quite long and the cocktails go along with the sushi very well. The sushi is very delicious and fresh and the dim sum can also be recommended.

Cube is decorated in a nice modern style without a hint of asian kitsch. The restaurant is very small (groups of more than six are impossible), as half of the room is taken by the kitchen where you can see the chefs prepare the super fresh food. They not only serve the standard maki fillings (salmon, tuna, and avocado), but also offer other fish, seafood, and a variety of vegetables. Special ordering is encouraged.

Ishin Japanese Deli

Ishin is an unadorned, simple Japanese restaurant in busy Mitte. The sushi is always fresh and the prices are also affordable. The cooks at the bar and the waitresses are very nice and busy at the same time. There is always a crowd and hard to find more than 2 empty seats within 15 minutes.


Mikoto is a small, lively and bright and green coloured sushi restaurant. It is not a posh place for elaborate dining, but a nice-looking casual sushi place where you can spend a nice Friday evening with the girls or the boys, anticipating a night out or a bar hopping evening. The staff at Mikoto are all very friendly and helpful and will always try to find you a spot, even if you happen to stumble into this restaurant on a busy Saturday evening after shopping in Kreuzberg. The best thing about Mikoto is that they offer a nicely extensive sushi menu – offering everything ranging from classical maki, exciting inside-out rolls all the way to special rolls and fried tempura sushi.
