Simply the best Japanese restaurant in Barcelona. Superb Japanese cooking served by Japanese waiters in a truly Japanese style environment. Very authentic food with excellent taste and quality. An excellent place to go as long as you reserve with enough time in advance.

Great food! The tartare had to have been the best i've had in my life. The chef's selections of Nigeri was also amazing. Everything that I had was fantastic. Great Dining experience.

Japanese restaurants serving sushi attract an expectation of high standards. I'm no different. The food was absolutely top standard, but personally I'm not fond of sake. This little detail is enough this time to knock a point off the total evaluation score. You'll enjoy the...More

In much of the West, Asian food is ubiquitous; but in Spain, especially Barcelona where haute Catalan cuisine reigns supreme, it is downright adventurous. Shunka, a regionally-rare Japanese eatery whose name means “intense aroma of the season,” harnesses the best of the East-West dichotomy by fusing local ingredients with Japanese-style cooking methods.
