Went there based on a magazine recommendations. Place was filled with locals. The waitress was extremely rude and would get orders from locals first. Was so bad that a couple next to us who arrived at the same time would get the order first, eat their meal, and leave before we got an order. Also waitress gave us terrible recommendations... More

This was, believe it or not, my first time ever eating udon noodles. So I don't really have anything else to compare it to, but I really dug this place. First off, you know it's good when people are willing to wait almost half and hour outside in the cold for table. Once in, the vibe is cool, with basically... More

in this restaurant you get the best of japanese udon noodle soup available in paris. since they have relocated in villedo street it is always a pleasure to enjoy a lunch there. the noodles are melting in your mouth and the broth is outstanding. i would recommend this place to anyone wishing to experience a real japanese treat.

My (Parisian) cousin took us out here. He works in the restaurant industry in Paris and I trust his opinion in general - this was no exception. Service was friendly; waiter suggestions were good; our dishes were fantastic. Not over fancy presentation, but elegant and nice nonetheless. And very tasty. It was a hot day and a cold udon noodle... More

There are many Japanese restaurants in Paris, but only a few authentic ones. Kunitoraya is an excellent place to get some Japanese tappas and home made Udon noodles along with an ice cold Kirin beer.

Nice little noodle Japanese restaurant run by real Japanese, exactly the kind of restaurant you can find in Tokyo with a very long line at the entrance (at least for Paris standard). Much better than all these average sushi places in Paris.

Ok I got excited by this place. It looked fabulous and getting there 7.30 on Saturday night meant we missed the long lines that all these lovely little places amass. The food was fresh and authentic, the language was French or Japanese( neither of which is my forté ) but we managed. Most of the places ( as you might... More

We came one Thursday evening on account of a recommendation and waited over 1 hour before being seated. My feet hurt so much after spending the day sightseeing and there were lots of empty spots at the bar which were not used for customers. Once at a table, the food and drinks arrived quickly and were all satisfactory, though the... More

The restaurant was close to our apartment and recommended by our Asian chauffeur. They serve casual and authentic Japanese Udon and Rice dishes in a informal cafe setting. Menu list was short but had good variety of food. Quality was very good, service quite efficient and prices very reasonable for Paris. Tables are small and close together and there were... More

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.
