I went there for dinner, and it was really good. Kinugawa has a very nice vibe (we were on the 1st floor). The food is excellent and i would recommend the Hamachi (starters). However, the service was a little slow but i guess it happens. It was an overall very good experience and would definitely go back when in Paris.

Everything was splendid. The raw fish was so fresh that it seemed to be still alive (fortunately it was not the case). The staff was outstandingly efficient. Everything turned this experience into something unforgettable.

Went here for lunch and sat at the Sushi Bar. The quality of the sushi itself is OK. They did-not offer some of the fish we asked for, so that was a dissapointment. But everything we ate, we were satisfied with. Not amazed, just satisfied. The tempura however was very good. Service was great and our waiter was extremely helpful,... More

First things first, the food was really tasty and high quality as you would expect from a high end restaurant in Paris. However, I was slightly annoyed at quite how pretentious it was eg no serving spoons with main dishes, even though one we had came in a sauce, and food had to be eaten off tiny flat plate rather...

By far the best sushi we've ever had (and we eat a lot of sushi!). Romantic setting and service was good.

....but rather, a branché French restaurant serving mediocre Japanese food, complemented by mediocre service and steep prices. This is a concept restaurant - low lighting, multi-leveled, lounge music. The food is part of the journey and clearly not the destination. The menu is your basic Japanese fare - seaweed salads, maki, tempura, sushi, sashimi, various hot dishes. I started with... More

I love their food, the prawn tempura salad was good and the prawn tempura roll was really delicious. When you book ask for a table at the first floor, the service is much better up. I didn't have time for the dresser but I saw it on the next table and it looks wow...

Adrian at the Mandarin recommended Kinugawa for dinner and we made an early reservation. The interior is large, on several levels and quite well designe. We both ordered the Kinugawa menu and were efficiently served a wonderful assortment of Japanese food. The quality and presentation was top-notch, Service was excellent but the restaurant was not yet crowded. In a city... More

you may say it is pricey, and yes, I'd say it is for special occasion or a treat, but so far it was the best Japanese in Paris we tried. once youa re in - the service is impeccable, but the front desk is a typical Parisian 'it is your problem' kind of a service (I even got a look... More
