Isshin Japanese Restaurant

Japanese in Summer Palace & Haidian

A long-time local favourite, Isshin is well worth tracking down if you’re in the area. With its thoughtful design, laid-back atmosphere and reasonable prices, it’s a place where business types, expat Japanese and students can all feel at home. The sushi bar is made for solo travellers, while the sushi bowls (¥48), including salad, are a great deal.

The extensive menu includes hotpots, udon noodles and teriyaki dishes. You'll find the restaurant set back from the road, about 50m north of the traffic lights at the intersection of Chengfu Lu and Wudaokou station.
