Food was surprisingly good. Beef was juicy. Very tasting rice. Nice combinations of taste. It was worth the waiting time which was rather very long. Staff proffesional, do not miss the smile. But they have extremely uncomfy chairs and interior now looks like something between kitchen and construction site.

The restaurant looks a bit quirky and trendy, with its post industrial look meets Japan, its long tables to share with the other guests. The food is great and traditional, from the noodle soups to the katsudon pork. Great flavours, quick service. It's certainly a change from the usual sushi or yakitori, and a very unusual combination of dishes for... More

パリに住んでいると、基本的に自分で和食は作るのですが、たまに外食したくなります。 久しぶりに日本食の外食という事で、ちょっと奮発しようかなと思っていました。 たしか名前が、味噌煮込み大根というものだったと思うのですが(すみません、正確には忘れました) 出てきたものは、ただのみそ汁でした。ただのみそ汁にたしか8ユーロから10ユーロ近く 払ったと思います。量もみそ汁椀一杯分の量、異常に高い。味は普通で、自分で 簡単に作れるなって 思いました。ちらし寿司というものを頼みましたが、取り皿用の小皿に酢飯、 上にちょっとした薬味が乗っかっているだけ、それを見た瞬間、本当にガッカリしました。なのでそれ以上頼むのを辞め出てきました。 日本でだったら、タダの酢飯にみそ汁程度の品に、あれだけの金額確か30ユーロ(4200円強)を払わされて、本当に怒り心頭でした。 as a Japanese living in Paris I usually cook japanese food by myself but sometimes I feel like to eat out.for a long time i'd not eaten out in Japanese restaurant so, I was looking forward. I think I orderd a MISO Radish&pork (I could imagine like a miso tasted stew... More

This is a good choice if you want a break from French food and want something very different. It is, of course, far from the best food in Paris. It is a good choice if you want Udon noodles or rice dishes. Not exactly Japanese food (not sushi). It is a low key, crowded place with Communial tables. The service... More

We had just visited the Epices Roellinger for some spices, and were looking for a soba noodle restaurant that we had seen on a previous visit. We happened by a corner restaurant, with no sign what so ever to indicate what it was. However, we could see that the many patrons were eating udon noodles and tempura, and some had... More

We were staying right down the block and decided to pop in when we happened by and saw a couple of spots open up at one of the communal tables--a rare event since there is often a long queue. Service was prompt and friendly and the udon--I'm no expert--seemed fine, though I was not overwhelmed by the taste or texture... More

The exlierence in this great little restaurant is Udon at its best! The locals who were there raved that it was as good as any they had eaten in Japan. We thought it was the best we had ever had. Service really friendly, prompt. I recommend this small fun restaurant where you share tables as a very fun expierence...

If you expect tasting a real Japanese Udon, you will be disappointed with this restaurant. Udon is close to real Japanese Udon noodle but its cooking way is far from real Japanese style. If you really want to taste Japanese Udon, I do not recommend this place but acceptable for tourists.

This is by far my favorite Japanese restaurant in Paris for udon. Kind service and yummy dishes bringing me back to years spent living in Japan. I recommend it but you must arrive early as there is always a line!

We waited just 10 minutes so we have been lucky because this place is always packed with the line outside. The food is great, one of the best I had in paris..the tempura is fantastic, same for the udon. The staff is really kind, but they speak a really poor english. Overall a great place to go if you wanna... More
