Great little Japanese restaurant. Had the salmon sushi consisting of maki, nigiri and some "grilled" salmon. It was so good! Great service, beautiful restaurant, clean and fresh. If you're looking for a cozy dinner with great food, this is the place!

It's well worth it's trips-advisor rating. At main course we took the salmon sushi variation and the beef. We where both amazed at how the meat melted in our mouths and the composition of the dishes. Super neat service and the restaurant was cosy and clean.

If you're looking for a balance of quality and value, this is it. Delicious Japanese cuisine is complemented by fantastic service, creating an authentic experience all-round. I could not recommend this restaurant enough, and I promise you will not be disappointed. My only regret is that my girlfriend and I did not discover this treasure earlier on in our trip!

First restaurant in the French Riviera that I've found that serves Japanese whiskey. Food was good. And the toilet is the cleanest in Nice. Typical Japanese 😊

Interesting.... We found their food a little heavier and oily to "regular" Japanese . That said, we enjoyed our meal. By the time you consider a starter and a main course, you may as well order the 30 (per person) set 3 course meal. Japanese salad was lovely, as was the fish carpaccio. The duck was good, but my fried... More
