We went to eat here tonight following the advice of a Japanese colleague. I have to say that it was an amazing experience. The menu might not be super wide, but we tried several things and each and any of them was delicious and well presented. The service is nice as well, very accurate and quick, always smiling.

we went here last night (we had reserved a table) otherwise you can't get in. The food is very very good. The service was slow at first then got to almost too fast as the table was almost overflowing, I told the young man to come back in a while we were not in a hurry. We both took the... More

Nice tiny Japanese place. Very traditional, every tastes very well. Closes early, and limited tables. But 5 stars

That's one of the best restaurant I ever went to. Because there was a lot of wait, the chef gave us a fish ball. We took chicken brochettes to start, which were just incredible tasteful. The Japanese fondue was delicious and generous. We were three and can't finish it all, even if two of us were big eaters. The desserts... More

I first wanted to say that this place is terrible so that it doesn't become more popular than it already is. But then I thought it would be slightly unfair. Because this place is just amazing. The service is better than what I've known in super high end (read very pricey) places. It's actually kind and generous. The food is... More

The food is good. No problem on that front. The service is good. No problem on that front. However, it is way way overpriced. There are no words to explain the interior design. It looks like a take-away place. I don't think that it is worth eating decent Japanese food at this price levels. There are much better options in... More

This is definitely the best sushi/sashimi restaurant in Geneva and among the best in Europe. Mr. Kakinuma is always behind the counter to prepare your sushis and sashimis. Mrs. Kakinuma and their son are serving you the food. The restaurant is small and very badly decorated. But, who cares, when you are having such a wonderful food.

This place is for people who can really appreciate good Japanese food. By Geneva standards (everything is expensive here), the prices are very reasonable - especially for lunch. The chirashi was great. By far one of the best Japanese restaurants in Geneva. Service was impeccable.
