    Hey Toshi,
    I'm not a native here, but I've been living here for a while, and I think Hungarians do like sushi. There are a few popular Japanese restaurants in Budapest. But in general, I think the quality of Japanese food here is not very good.
    Cheers!

    Hi Toshi,
    I will be very happy if you open one :) There are many expensive sushi places, with not the best quality. And there's one which I like, called "Okuyama No Sushi" (at Kolosy tér), with perfect food and poor interior.
    To go to a sushi place is still a snobish or classy thing for Hungarians. And it would be good to have more places, and we could eat there not only on feast-days :)
    Cheers

    Hi!!

    I personally love Japanese cuisine! I've been to Japan last summer, so there we could try it with my friends, and I like most of the food.
    It's getting really popular here, but Japanese restaurants are among the more expensive ones, so most of the people cannot afford it.
    Here are the popular ones:
    - Wasabi (http://www.wasabi.hu/index.php?page=homerun&lang=en)
    - Nobu has just opened recently
    - Fuji
    but to tell the truth, I haven't been to a Japanese restaurant at Budapest yet.

    Hey Toshi!

    Great idea! If you open a restaurant I will be your first client!

    I think european love japanese food, but the japanese food in Europe is very often not as good as real one we can find in Japan. So, if there is real Japanese chef in Europe he should have a lot succes!

    What about trying to open an Izakaya? If you do this I promise I will come to diner every evening! :)

    Hi, I wouldnt mind talking abou this, have a few ideas of my own.
    Private_message
    Its a good idea :) there are lot of places to eat sushi, but very few to have REAL ones :) i recommend to open a small shop somewhere in the center, it may cost You more, but it will surely run! Also think about making ramen, its almost impossible to find good ones. And i want to eat nikuman!!! :D
    Private_message
    Yes, it is a great idea! I will be your third customer! Make sure you also open a small japanese conbini next to it, where we can buy onigiri, natou, johny tofu, manju, kirin biru, edamame, bentou, cc-lemon, ... etc... it will start the perimeter of japn town in Budapest :-)

    Thank you for many reply.
    Japanese food (mostly sushi) is expensive in Budapest.
    but they want to eat if fair price...
    Sounds like Japanese restaurant in budapest is not bad idea.

    So people go to japanese restaurant , because of healthy ?
    or fashion? or taste? so...what kind occasion?

    and Do you like other japanese food, Udon, tempura, Ramen, yakitori...?(Japanese noodle or tapas)
    Private_message
    I think the reason depends really on the person. Personally I like it because it's more organized I guess than what I'm used to and I really like the combination of the different flavours.
    I know it's cliché but e.g. I love wasabi, and it would be nice to be able to buy it at a fair price here at Budapest as well.

    I really like ramen, I had a really nice one in Kyoto. :)

    Hi Toshi!
    Wonderful idea! You have your 4th guest.
    Even though I think there are in Bp many different sushi places, here a recent article http://welovebudapest.com/en/restaurants-bistros/articles/2012/11/13/get-some-sushi-in-budapest

    But authentic and reasonable Japanese restaurants or noodle or ramen places much less...

    Good luck!

    oh noooo please don't look at the we love budapest article :D those places are not good at all! One of the best places for sushi in Budapest is Okuyama no sushi, run by Okuyama san ^^ but its not in the center and its also a bit expensive.

    I have a lot of friends, who were already in Japan, are japanese, or just love the japanese kitchen, and we all struggle with the choices of restaurants in Budapest. Either its very expensive (and you can't really afford them), or too far away from the city center. Btw, Takebayashi is also very good, but its also a bit expensive.

    Toshi, maybe you should check out the website for Takebayashi :P but there is none for Okuyama san's restaurant. http://www.takebayashi.hu/

    Konnichi wa Toshiya San, o genki desu ka?

    I would appreciate a lot to have a new Japanese restaurant. There are a few in Budapest but the good ones (Fuji restaurant, sushi sei ) are very very expensive , especially for locals. There are of course wealthy Hungarians and foreigners too so you should decide what type of clients you are in mind.

    As I lived in Japan I know that Japanese cuisine is much more then sashimi or sushi , and you have to think that as a landlocked country there won't be fresh sea fishes available.
    Hungarians would also like ramen, or meat dishes like. For example teppan yaki, ramen as mentioned before . Yaki soba , udon well probably not so much. But good luck in case of real interest I would enquire more .

    Hi! There are some, but only a few of good quality. I think Hungarians have the need for good and escpecial food. What you also have to take into consideration that economically the country is not too strong.
    If you like we can speak personally as well; I like sushi and one of my best friend is a passionate of Japanese food and culture :)
