subjective, based on my personal experience. Please feel

Explanation of the structure of the entries on this page:
Name of the restaurant
Local phone number (prefix with +49-89 if calling long-distance)
(optional: E-Mail address)
MVV: Public transport accessibility (nearest stop)
Die gute vietnamesische Mama
MVV: U3, U6, 54, 154 (Giselastraße)
Good and surprisingly inexpensive Italian restaurant.
As I was told, the Algarve unfortunately is closed right now.
Rumour has it that the owner intends to open a new restaurant under
a new name, not far from the old one. Please send me an
email if you know more on this.
MVV: U2, U8 (Theresienstraße), 20, 21 (Sandstraße)
Despite its European name - in German and English, it denotes a
in Greek, it has the meaning of little bell -, this is a genuine Japanese restaurant, but with a twist:
The owners, Mr. and Mrs. Kaneshiro, offer what is best describe as "tasty home
cooking", and the tiny dining room emphasizes the impression that you
are guest in a private house instead of being in a restaurant. Consequently,
many dishes show clear influence of Western cooking, although adapted
to Japanese style - such as han-bu, the Japanese version of
MVV: 15, 19, 25 (Wörthstraße)
Extensive menu, good quality. I have never been disappointed.
Pariser Straße 46
MVV: S1-8, DB, U5, 19, 54, 55, 100, 145, 152, 155, 159, 9410, N19, N45 (Ostbahnhof);
15, 25 (Wörthstraße)
Nice and not very expensive place with good cocktails and a large selection of dishes.
MVV: S1-8, 17, 18, 131, N17 (Isartor)
My favorite Italian in town. You really feel as if being in a family. Despite
its size, the
is cozy, dishes and wine
are excellent. Try the surprise menu - you won't be disappointed!
Note: Quality has its price. This restaurant is
priced a bit (not much!) above average.
MVV: U3, U6, 131, 132, N33 (Poccistraße)
You wouldn't expect such a place of such a low price and such a high quality in
this hidden spot of München! Enjoy the dishes, a
chat with the owner of the
place about his selection of wines.
MVV: 58 (Beethovenplatz); U3, U6, N40 (Goetheplatz)
Price level a bit above average, quality of food well above average. My favorite dessert:
Banana cooked in coconut milk.
Sankt Bonifatius Straße 6
MVV: 15, 25, 27, N27 (Ostfriedhof)
Remember when you were a kid, and you came home and
you mum was already waiting in the kitchen with
freshly made Goi Cuon as a starter
and Karamelisiertes Wammerl to
fill up your tummy? You can
get this feeling again by dining at Mama. The interior
is so spartanic that one hesitates calling it a
restaurant, but the quality of the food is hard
Ask the lovely owner of the place, wheather
she has, by chance, got any
and if she does, ask
her to prepare Golden Schwein
for you (yes, the spelling is correct); and when you
order for dessert the fruit salad (only fresh, exotic
fruits), you will file like heaven...
MVV: U2, U8, 12, 27, 53, N27 (Hohenzollernplatz)
"Delicious" is an understatement. Though not exactly inexpensive,
you definitely should try out this cozy place,
which is located just round the corner of Nigiste-Saba.
As for the wines, you can safely trust the recommendations of the friendly
MVV: 19, N19, N33 (Lenbachplatz); S1-8, U4, U5, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, N17, N20, N27, N40 (Stachus)
Slightly high-priced and a bit fashionable, but good cooking. I recommend in particular
the Sunday brunch.
MVV: 54, 55, 145, 152, 155, N45 (Orleansstraße), S1-8, 15, 25 (Rosenheimer Platz)
Small and cozy restaurant with tasty dishes and friendly service.
MVV: U2, U8, 12, 27, 53, N27, N41 (Hohenzollernplatz)
You have to eat with your fingers, because you don't get any cutlery. This
is the ideal place to go with your kids (and to lure them away from McD & Co).
WARNING: If you are into spicy dishes, you really have to insist that you
would like the meal hot and spicy, otherwise you won't get it!
MVV: 58 (Kapuzinerplatz-Arbeitsamt)
My favorite place for introducing Bavarian food
to foreigners. The restaurants operates its own
brewery and the beer is delicious. It features
also a nice beer garden and a library (i.e. a
room where you can dine with books).
MVV: 100 (Von der Tann Straße), 27 (Pinakotheken)
A very pleasant way to increase body weight.
MVV: 15, 19, 25 (Wörthstraße)
Even Indians confirm that the food here is tasty (though
unfortunately not hot&spicy, even if you ask for it)
MVV: U3, U6, 58, N40 (Goetheplatz)
One of my alltime favorites - I go there about every second week. Well, maybe I'm a bit
biased because I happen to live just opposite the
street; but at least you have to try the delicious
MVV: 52, 152 (Gärtnerplatz)
Fish, fish, fish! Creative compositions of everything which lives in our seas.
High in quality and price, with added entertainment value due to the waiters.
Only negative point: The typical 7fish client seems to smoke 7cigarettes per
evening. Why don't people realize that the smoke of a cigarette kills the
delicious taste of the meals? When I want to have smoked fish, I will order one!
Note: Reserving a table is advisable.
MVV: S1-8, U4, U5, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, N17, N19, N20, N27, N40 (Stachus);
U3, U6, 27, 52, 152 (Sendlinger Tor)
Owner Takaaki Sano offers sushi for a fairly acceptable price. It sure is no
that many Japanese frequent
this place. Fair warning: It is very difficult, if not impossible, to find in
München any high quality sushi at all, which would really satisfy the Sushi
connaisseur, but at least I was told by Japanese friends, that this place were
better than the typical Sushidromes in our town.
MVV: U1, U2, U7, 27, N27 (Fraunhoferstraße)
Excellent: The Bento box and the cocktails. As not unusual for Japanese
dishes of good quality, you will spend more for the food than in typical German restaurants,
but then go during Happy Hour, which applies not only to cocktails, but also to the
Bento menu. The main disadvantage of this otherwise very good place is that - not the least
because of the background music, which should be better called foreground music, the
average noise level is pretty high.
MVV: U4, 54, 100, 159 (Prinzregentenplatz)
Very good and friendly place, right opposite the
