“Almost Japan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Great service (Japanese staff) and cuisine (Japanese cook). A bit pricey but the 15 euros plat-du-jour is good for the value. Be sure to come at the opening of the doors since the plat-du-jour is limited in numbers (this to improve the quality).
The kitchen is open, there's a counter and tables, yet it's rather small. Better book in advance.
The miso pork is wonderful.

“Awesome food but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

I was here recently and back in 2009. Both times were great culinary experiences.

Former chef from Tagawa (which is now closed) started this place and cooks here regularly.

Really innovative menu, which really delves you the Japanese culinary tradition. Highly recommended, but come bearing a heavy wallet...

“Poor Asian experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Good quality food but very basic
Presentation not up to a good Asian restaurant
Dining room too small and poor aspiration of cooking, we left the restaurant and for two days our clothes smell of cooked.
Booked two weeks in advance for a lunch and when we arrived the dish of the day was finished at 1pm.
Too expensive compared to the service and the food, half a liter of natural water 5 €

“Excellent raw fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

If you're looking for something different in the world of raw fish, this is the place to visit. All dishes we tasted were very good and prepared in an onteresting way. Cooked salmon was also very tasty. Was it excellent? Almost, certainly very good and we'll come back. On top of that quality/price ratio is more than correct compared to otjer restaurants. Small minus - Nespresso instead of more decent coffee. In a 1* restaurant it's unacceptable.
