Fast Japanese food

For a fast tasty Japanese meal this place hits the mark. Super affordable and offers a variety of typical Japanese ramen and curries.

What a disappointment! They had extensive menu, but the quality just wasn't there. Tonkatsu was thin and fatty, the salad dressing was bland (just vinegary), the rice was of cheap quality, the pickles was tired, and the soup needed more miso. Katsudon was inedible - the sauce was too sugary. Ramen didn't look good, either. I can't see how it... More

We'e craving ramen and saw the reviews and the line waiting outside. The food was really good - not too salty, noodles terrific texture, and great flavor. Definitely driving people through as fast as they can and live on volume with people jammed together...but inexpensive and great food, so definitely worth it.

Lovely! We had the chaa siuu (tender roasted pork slices) ramen and the tonkatsu (deep fried chicken coated in egg) noodle soup. The chaa siuu was full of flavor and deliciously tender. The tonkatsu dish was overall a bit sweet but still good. There are plenty other tasty rice and fried noodle dishes on the menu, so don't worry if... More

Although people kept complaining about salty soup on TripAdvisor, we gave it a go and were positively surprised. The soup was very good and not salty at all. We had the dumplings, salmon, and some sushi. All of it tasted very very nice and the staff was also very friendly and knew enough English. The prize was very reasonable and... More

If you want to have hot soups and noodles, it's an ok place. If you are searching a Japanese flavor of lamen, it's not the taste you think. Especially for someone who has ever tasted the real lamen they won't like this .

After a long day visiting the sites of Paris. A traditional Japanese 🏯 restaurant 🍴 hit the spot... Out teenagers (14 & 17) loved the food and atmosphere... Great dinner and the service was excellent... They even had English menus and the staff spoke English well

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.
