About Us

Dear Guests,

welcome to our restaurant “Tor189”.

Here on Torstraße, in Berlin-Mitte, we take you on a world tour – culinary, human and atmospheric. We are looking forward to your visit.

“Eating is a need, enjoying is an art.” (Rochefoucauld)

Culinary – As colorful and different as Berlin, we dedicate ourselves to the diversity of world cuisine. From the European kitchen, to the Latin American, up to the
explosions of Asian tastes, we create dishes that all represent a small, special journey around the world.

“It must come from the heart what shall work on the heart.” (Goethe)

Team – Our passion for the world, travel and the love of food define our cuisine. It all started with the owner, Soleiman Mansouri,
who after 10 years in North/Central America, Europe and Asia decided to bring the pleasures of the world and the feeling of the “One Planet” to Berlin-Mitte. His passion is shared by chef Robin Bandura, who was born and raised in Berlin and has developed a special love for Latin American and Asian cuisine during his career at the Golden Phoenix and Cantina in BarTausend, among others.

“Anyone who retains the ability to recognize beauty will never grow old.” (Kafka)

Ambiente – Our logo is inspired by the New Synagogue Berlin, which can be admired from our green oasis (terrace) – let yourself be inspired by a glass of wine! Our bar is embodied by the history of music. Our dining rooms are completely defined by our owner’s travels, but also by the beauty of diversity.

Our concept is based on three guiding principles:
● Eating and drinking with passion – enjoyment is at the forefront and so is the selection of fresh, high-quality products
● Hospitality – we welcome our guests in our living/dining room, the Tor189
● We are one world – we love people, the world and accordingly support diversity and sustainability
