“authentic japanese restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is one of very few (or maybe the only?) authentic asian restaurants in Annecy which is not just offering sushi or fast food. The waitress is lovely and very obliging. She told us that the menu is changing every 3 months. There are two menus (27 and 33 €) containing an entrée, a main dish and a dessert, but I just chose an entrée and a main dish without dessert as I do often. Both were very good. The two friends who accompanied me and the couple at the table next to us with whom we came into conversation were very positively surprised either. We will all come back!

“Detailed, fine, delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

First to arrive, we noticed that most of the other tables were booked..could only be a good sign. And it was. Excellent service, the waitress knows the story between each meal or ingredient and is there without being all over you. The food was very delicate and delicious. I recommend the Japanese prune liquor to start a very good evening out!

“Best Japanese restaurant of the region!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

My friends and I all love Japanese food but having travelled a little bit, we can't understand why most Japanese restaurants around where we live in France only offer sushis... That was before we discovered Minami! As you enter the restaurant, you can appreciate the calm and serenity of a small room but the tables are all well spaced. The waitress is very pleasant and knowledgeable when it comes to explaining the menu. 3 of us had the bento box and the other had fish. All our dishes were fantastic!! Quantities were more than enough and we could definitely taste Japan in our plates.
We had a great time and we can't wait to go back and make other friends discover this great little place!
