Tasty authentic food and fast service

Great lunch on a rainy day. A cup of hot soup with tofu, small salad a donburi with beef. And all this for 11 euros. Tea and water are free. Highly recommended.

Never have had such terrible Tenpura Don before. The fried shrimps are small and wet, also tasted like rubber. It got good reputation on the internet but disappointed us in every aspect. This was the first time we visit this restaurant, so maybe we just got unlucky though.

A quant little Japanese restaurant which seems to be run by only 2 men; one chef and one waiter. The food was simple and fabulous. I went for rice with raw salmon. We also had Japanese curry Udon, Udon with pork belly and another two dishes which I couldn't remember now. It was DELICIOUS without breaking the bank. One of... More

As a Japanese in living abroad I sometimes crave for Japanese food. We've been to a Japanese restaurant in Düsseldorf a few weeks ago, what a difference with this place... in a negative way. From the outside everything looked ok : a simple Japanese diner interior with only one free table and a menu similar to other Izakaya like restaurants.... More

We have discovered the Rue Saint-Anne this trip for the first time and already tried a few other restaurants in this street. However, the informal, cozy experience of this place combined with the freshness of the ingredients and the high quality of the dishes, really makes this restaurant something special. Admitted, it is somewhat cramped inside and the air conditioning... More

As an accustomed client of this restaurant I was never disappointed by the meals in the menu at noon, here you're far from the dull sushi eatery which is not even run by Japanese. Indeed, this restaurant serves only traditional meals such as Donburis (about fifteen varieties, the tempura is tasty, the one with beef and the other with raw... More

Naniwa-Ya is one of the rarities in Paris: a Japanese-run, Japanese restaurant. The food here very good and less expensive than the lesser-quality "Japanese" restaurants around it. They make take the time hand-make their dishes, including their gyoza(!), and have many small dishes that you will be hard-pressed to find elsewhere in Paris (e.g., natto). The service was very good,... More
