Asian restaurant in Berlin | Ryōtei 893 in Charlottenburg

Who is getting around Berlin’s gastronomy a little bit, doesn’t get around The Duc Ngo. He opens one cool restaurant concept after the other: His latest baby is Toki The White Rabbit. But that‘s for another post. I‘ve already been to most of Duc‘s restaurants now. Only Funky Fish and Cocolo Ramen are missing.

I’ve finally bade it to his stylish Japanese restaurant Ryōtei 893 in Charlottenburg. To get a table spontaneously is nearly impossible. In fact, I had booked our table already three weeks ago (for during the week!). The next available table on the weekend would‘ve been at the end of March.

The restaurant positiones itself unpretentiously to the busy Kantstr. Whilst searching for the entrance I walked by until I realized that I‘ve already passed it. Only a small sign with 893 indicates the entrance. When entering you‘ll be welcomed at the wardrobe and will be accompagnied to your table. The staff is a fresh mix of young and cool people. I absolutely loved it‘s laidback flair. Charlottenburg is known to be classic and posh but Duc‘s concept are definitely beaking out of it.

The interieur of Ryōtei 893 is quite dark. Along the window there are small tables for two whilst the long bar of heavy stone invites to have a drink there. Moreover, you‘ll be able to watch the cooks do their magic but also run the risk of getting a little bit fried.

We got a calmer table along the window. Whilst sneaking into the menu I was sipping my glass of Chardonnay while my comany drank an Asahi beer.

FOOD & DRINKS

The dishes are perfect to share. The menu is quite fish based but there are enough plates for the meat lovers. Don‘t be frightened of the prices as high quality fish costs a lot of money in Berlin. The waiter recommended the Black Cod (32€). We added another main course, one 6 piece sushi plate (20€) and two side dishes – Japanese mushrooms and Udon noodles.

The dish with the octopus was the perfect start. Perfectly balanced with some avocado, blanched tomatoes, cilantro and red onions.

Right after, the sushi platter followed. A variation of six different kinds of fresh fish. The sushi was great but way too expensive in my opinion. Lastly, the black cod along with the udon noodles and Japanese mushrooms were served. To be honest, I wasn‘t such a fan of the black cod as it was a little bit too overseasoned/marinated. And very prices! On the other hand I loved the udon noodles and mushrooms.

RÉSUMÉ

I loved the ambience and the service was quite good at Ryōtei 893. The price of the dishes is quite high like in all Dug Ngo restaurants. However, quality has its price and his guests appreciate that. I‘d definitely come back for a special occasion.
