Fast good noodles in central Paris

Been many times with work and always been presently surprised. Always feel a bit rushed, but the service is tres rapid. Food is recognisable to the English and true to Jspanese cuisine (for Paris)

The place was full, however the service was fast and the food was great, ramen (around 9 euros) with great taste and size. Unagui Don and miso soup also tasty. The price was the best considering the prices in Paris.

This is a wonderful little find. It is cheap enough (for Paris) for a great traditional Japanese dish like this. The service is fast and efficient.

Tried Kintaro after reading the positive reviews here. I was very happy with the experience, the service was really friendly, fast and the food was delicious. Loved the informality of the place too. Like a ramen shop in Japan. I cannot tell about the negative reviews talking about the quality of the broth as I am not an expert but... More

We went to Kintaro during our stay in Paris in the beginning of January and wanted to eat ramen which was not yet available in Geneva. After being a bit disappointed by Kotteri Ramen Naritake (the broth was way too salty) and frustrated because the excellent restaurant Takara was closed for the holidays, we decided to come here based on...

Quick and good spot for lunch in the CBD around Opéra. This place can get really packed but the service is fast. Don't expect to stay over there long, it is more like a cantine kind of place with overall good food.

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
