Mangetsu Japanese Restaurant


There was a time when every other week someone was arranging a trip to Mangetsu but it seems that it’s not really the flavour of the month anymore, and I’d like to bring it back.

Mangetsu is situated up near the messe fair hall and is a short tram ride away from the main station. It’s one of the few places in Frankfurt where you step inside the door and feel like you’ve been transported right to Japan – there’s even Japanese tv showing and a whole bookcase of manga I’m itching to dive into.

The staff can range from quite polite to “wow, she’s pretty rude!” but the food is excellent, and makes up for it. You can find your typical “izakaya” food but I went with some girlfriends for sushi the other week and that was some of the best sushi I’ve had in Frankfurt yet. Above is the “mika getsu” set which was around 15 euros if I remember rightly.

Mangetsu is always my first recommendation when people are asking for real Japanese food in Frankfurt.

You can find Mangetsu at

Varrentrappstr. 57

  1. Had some delicious sushi tonight myself ๐Ÿ™‚ What a great food it is…#nom

  2. Hi there! Mangetsu is a wonderful place indeed. But have you ever been to `Iwaseยด? Definitely my favourite when it comes to traditional (and absolutely yummy) Japanese food. The only downside is that you have to bring your own manga. ๐Ÿ˜‰
