We were very surprised how tasty the food was. Great flavour and reasonable prices. Where they lose that last point is in their atmosphere, or lack thereof. If this isn't as important to you and you just want a good quality Japanese meal, then definitely give Kintaro Lamen a go. It can be quite busy, so you can expect shared,... More

There must be a shortage of decent ramen in Paris for this to get such a high rating. I wish I had done more research than the TA reviews on this place. We had the ramen with the pork belly. It hardly had any depth of flavor. All I could taste was watery soy broth and ramen noodle that was... More

If we had walked down this street and seen this restaurant, we would have walked straight on - and missed something of a treat. However, we had decided to eat here based on fellow critics of Tripadvisor. As is is, we were delighted to be sitting at a long table (perhaps twenty people) and choosing such fresh dishes. For anyone... More

We went there with my wife and our two kids. We took ramen, yokisoba and gyoza. The little one (5) is very picky with the food but he ate of everything. Really good food and nice croudy atmosphere.

We've all been there, the rich food is great but you just need something else for a change of pace. Great food, comforting, and just de-lish.

Last time was in Paris, my friends kept insisting going to Japanese area and we found this restaurant by chance. The queue was so long and we almost gave up. However, we all knew that the longer you have to wait, the better and the more authentic the food is. We were not disappointed. I had spicy beef curry over... More
