“Nice location, poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

The location is great, the place is spacious. The pleasant upstairs floor is however rarely open, and I wondered why when people are crammed downstairs fighting for a table in the sun. The table service is terrible. You are welcomed by grumpy faces that make you feel like you are a nuissance. Not sure why, as they imediately forget you are even there. The food is ok, slightly pricy for the decreasing size of the portions. Very expensive tea. Skip it (it will cost you at least another hour's wait...) and go to the nearby coffee/tea places, where you are greeted with a smile and not just when you pay.

“Best Japanese I have taken so far in France.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

Having stayed in Japan for 1 year and coming from a country where quality Japanese food are easily available, my expectation of Japanese food has always been high.
Unfortunately, I have yet to taste Japanese food up to my quality in France.
However, Ayako has been a pleasant surprise!
The taste is very close to what I have been usually eating, be it in Japan or in my country.
Well, the heading says it all :)
