Modelled after a typical Tokyo dining experience, Zenkichi challenges the assumption that Japanese cuisine equals little more than freshly-made sushi.

The bamboo-rich, deep wooden design is evocative of traditional Tokyo restaurants, taking guests on a sensory tour of Japan with its ambience, authentic dishes and unique selection of sakes, all curated by Watanabe. The modern Japanese brasserie immerses diners in Japanese culture, from cuisine to atmosphere, offering a unique and warm setting in the heart of Berlin
