Pan-Asian
Welcome to KOWA, the first Pan Asian restaurant in Milan.
At our restaurant we offer a fusion cuisine, born from the cross of different asian recipes and products through the inspiration and creativity of our Chefs.
KOWA has two internal wide dining spaces where in winter times our clients can taste dishes from our menu and cocktails made by our experienced Barman, and a spacious garden where they can relax during warm summer nights or have a cocktail at the fresh air.

We had to wait a long time for the first course and the lobster I ordered was cold.
Anyway, They were nice and gave us good discount.

ambiente molto piacevole - servizio medio, il cameriere non ha avvisato dei piatti fuori menu e dei piatti non presenti nel menu.

The food quality is not as good as before, and it is very overpriced for it is now. The quality has extremely dropped since last year. The service was ok. I hope it will improve again.

Eravamo a cena in due, io e la mia ragazza. Ordino i piatti che desideriamo assaggiare e alcuni comprendono una carne giapponese dal nome di difficile pronuncia, quando lo ordino il maitre di sala con atteggiamento stizzito e da superiore mi corregge la pronuncia mettendomi a disagio. Quando gli chiedo la differenza tra due tipi di carne (una giapponese e una australiana) lui sbuffa e fornisce una risposta assolutamente non esaustiva ed adeguata.

Stupenda serata. Una esperienza da ripetere assolutamente per i sapori assaggiati e l’ambiente rilassante. Personale veramente preparato ma senza invadere troppo la quiete della serata. Torneremo sicuramente

All perfect, food and ambient excellent. Service needs to be a touch more focus. Often you need to re ask for something...

nice relaxed location, but the staff seems to be very hectic and is not at all prepared. We were not asked for drinks before we could order the food, the first course was served before the drinks were served. We often had to ask 2 times etc. for the same thing. At the end we were asked if it was "ok". If the standard is only "ok" in this restaurant, I'm really sorry.

Asian flavours with Italian twists, on the solid traditional and modern foundation. Thoroughly enjoyed and pleasantly surprised.
Forget Nobu or Morimoto. Kowa is the place!

Era la seconda volta per me e mia moglie e abbiamo cenato in giardino con un clima perfetto. Cibo e vino ad altissimo livello come alla prima esperienza. Il conto non è leggero, ma in linea con il cibo e le bevande consumati. Torneremo certamente.

It was my first time at the restaurant, but we appreciated the location and the fantastic food. The wine list, while not extensive presents good choices with reasonable prices. We will most likely return.

From the moment you enter to the time you leave you will experience a 5* operation in action. Wine experts on hand, English speaking waiters assigned to our table to help guide you through the exquisite menu - wine was beautiful. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

KOWA was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. The staff's customer service was consistently outstanding. As a vegetarian, it can often be difficult to find a nice meal, this provided the BEST vegetarian meal I have ever had! The finest quality food, lots of different flavours which complimented each other! KOWA hosts a very beautiful garden area outside with heaters which was a fantastic touch! I would definitely recommend coming here, If I had longer in Milan, I would have definitely visited again!

Amazing spot for an Asian dinner, international ambience and really kind staff! We share the black cod as main course, it was so delicious I would have had another one!
Also the wine list is impressive, you can find the best wines if you are a wine lover!

The restaurant was incredibly busy. Waited 10 min by the bar and had a fantastic cocktail ( Zen Mex). The quality of the food and service is great. You are in Milan but you can compare the experience to Nobu , Zuma , Hakassan etc .
I have personally found the bill very honest. €152 for two with a bottle of wine. Similar restaurants in Milan charge more and they are not that good!

Decisamente sopra ogni più rosea aspettativa! Forse la scena della ristorazione qui a Milano non ha mai visto una simile commistione di alto livello di servizio, qualità delle materie prime e sapienza ed inventiva nella trasformazione! Complimenti perché era da tempo che non rimanevo così stupita da un ristorante!
