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!

I have been searching far and wide and this is certainly one of the best Japanese restaurants in Geneva. Authentic, with a lot of Japanese serving staff. Sashimi delicious, wasabi and tofu tasted homemade. I couldn't find this information anywhere, so here are lunch prices: plat du jour is 28chf, sashimi on/and rice with miso soup 31; there are a...

I took a Japanese colleague there last month and he told me he had never tasted this good a sushi out of Japan ( i think that says enough!). The deco could... More

I went to this restaurant with three Japanese colleagues and one Chinese colleague based on Trip Advisor reviews! It is located not far from the flower-clock and jet d'eau. My Japanese colleagues said that not only was this food authentic and delicious but it was amongst the best meals that they'd had, even back in Japan. We shared a couple... More
