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.

Sushi et. al is delicious. It's a family place, tiny and always full so you'd better book. By far the best Japanese restaurant in Geneva.

Our first night in Geneva and boy did we hit the jackpot with this fantastic restaurant. Absolutely bursting with customers, I had pre-booked the restaurant via my hotel 2 weeks in advance to be sure to get a table. The manageress was charming and helped us through the menu recommending the 'Fish Ball' special which we both opted to start... More

I have been only once in this restaurant and have only positive feedback. The service is amazing and food is fresh (dont think you can actually get fresher fish anywhere in Geneva). I def recommend going to this restaruant. Next time I am in Geneva - this is must place to go for dinner.

Our Japanese friend's parents were visiting Geneva and insisted on inviting us to a Japanese restaurant. Not being familiar with Japanese food, we left it to our Japanese friends to make a choice. We were most pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality and tastiness of the food. We had a most charming room all to ourselves, which only increased the... More

The sushi here is outstandingly good. It's difficult to recommend particular dishes as I have never had anything I didn't like. Th lunchtime menus are reasonable value for the quality provided and the servings are of decent size. Service is friendly and swift. Reservations recommended as the restaurant is small. Prices are high but this is Geneva and you're getting... More

it's terrific! Wonderful japanese kitchen. I had to refrain myself of not ordering half of the menu. I only went once so I could only have a taste of the tempuras yasai and oisters. And yes very good. The agedashi dofu is symply one of the best I've ever had. I had to wait for the waitresses to look elsewhere... More

The quality of food is fine, but you pay much too high for that, even at Switzerland standard! My husband and I were disappointed. Does not worth!
