5 exceptional Asian restaurants in Munich

1) Tengri Tagh Uyghur Restaurant

Munich has the largest Uyghur community outside of China. Their traditional cuisine has Chinese, oriental and Turkish influences. Lagman is the name of the thick hand-drawn noodles in the various dishes on the menu. The ambience is more snack bar than restaurant.

2) J-Bar

The J-Bar is set up like an izakaya, a type of Japanese pub. Here they serve traditional specialities (so please do not ask for sushi), such as Kirin beer with iced foam. The place has a really special atmosphere and is equally popular with the Japanese and with locals. Attention: cash only.

3) Sansaro Sushi

At Sansaro Sushi, they adhere to high standards and strongly believe in a good eating experience. Real Japanese chefs working with high-quality ingredients (organic where possible) serve sushi and sashimi, but you can also order a selection of warm dishes. A special place, a special treat.

The simple menu – they serve Chinese gyoza with different fillings or wantan in soup, the friendly service and an international crowd make for a pleasurable experience. Ideally suited for a quick bite to eat before your evening continues elsewhere. They are open every day.
