Sushi and Asian in Düsseldorf

Asian restaurant frontage

Sushi Bars are scattered across many streets in Düsseldorf, some of them having a tradition that goes back well over thirty years. The Japanese connection reaches even longer, has led to the city becoming one of the largest communities of residents from Nippon worldwide.

The focus of many activities originating in Japan is centred in the vicinity of Immermannstrasse, where some favourite eateries are located. Indeed the main reason for the quality of sushi, sashimi and other dishes is the high demand of Japanese residents. Unfortunately iconic KiKaKu has fallen to the pandemic. 😢

Try Yoshi by Nagaya, homemade noodle dishes at SobaAnKushi-Tei of Tokyo popular with the young, Naniwa attracts a queue, Qomo is up high, long time favourite Yabase and Takumi for rahmen. Some enjoy all-you-can-eat sushi meals and Oh! Sushi seems the most popular option.

Enthuse over more variations of Asian food also available in Düsseldorf. Some restaurants offer relatively authentic tastes from China such as Böser Chinese, Jinling, Rote Laterne, and the unique Three Kingdoms or from Vietnam, including SuzieQ or King Fusion.

Try Korean for instance at Bibimcup, Seoul, Korea Haus Han Kook KwanGing Seng and Kim’s Core, Thai dishes in Samui, Massaman, or Lay Thai and Indian at Jaipur, Rajdarbaar and Mayur. Middle Eastern cuisine is also found in Düsseldorf. Libanon or Byblos are great examples of traditional and popular Lebanese and Lezzet is just one of so many Turkish options.

To the surprise of newly arrived expats, some sections of the Rhine in Düsseldorf offer numerous beaches on both banks. The fine sand and shingle are ideal for walking, playing, relaxing and picnicking. Especially on warm and sunny summer days, people flock to enjoy the river.

Art venues and museums in Düsseldorf regularly present selections of their fine pieces in well arranged exhibitions. Regular exhibits also include fascinating or rare works from across the globe with loaned art and artefacts.

Public Transport

The public transport system in Düsseldorf is safe and normally efficient. A dense network of trams, Strassenbahn, above and below ground as well as buses serve the city and its suburbs. Links via the S-Bahn train system reach further outlying areas and some neighbouring communities.
