I was invited as a guest during a business dinner. The setting is comfortable though with limited space. The food presentation were just artfully executed. Ingredients are fresh and beautiful. I would definitely return.

Cool place. Really nice personal. Excellent food, worthy of a Michelin star with a cosy atmosphere. The best egg and tempura mushrooms dish i have ever tried. Congratulations to the chef. I recommend it.

It is nice to have some space in a Paris restaurant. We had the tasting menu on a Saturday at midday. We opted for the fish dishes, whenever they were available. It was excellent; the service was, too.

One of the best Japanese restaurants, calling it fusion is an insult to the creativity they should be credited with. Large number of plates served, lost count, small portions of course but high on taste, quality and creativity. Excellent service, if you are familiar with Japanese or Asian culture, empathetic and appreciative of the huge effort it takes to produce... More

For the price you pay, the service you get at this restaurant is horrific... the staff especially the manager is soo rude, so abrupt and poor, it was just one of the worse experiences ever. I was there with my girlfriend and it couldn't have been so poor. I almost walked out before finishing...

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and we almost cancelled because of the reference to Japanese influence. If you can afford this then don't miss it. The staff was beautiful with excellent communication skills and the food was one on the top list. Not your typical French fare but a welcomed experience after two weeks in France. There is... More

To start with, I loved the food. Every dish was great, with the wonderful Japanese tastes! Foodwise it was a great birthday lunch for a good value. The service does decrease the rating though. It was not bad, but it took away some of the experience. To start with we had 4-5 different waiters that were not aligned (every new... More

The cuisine is refined and imaginative. Special mention for the asparagus, cooked in various ways and all so delicious. The menu is set by the Chef and changes daily, which is nice and adds to charm of the evening: don't worry about anything and just enjoy the moment. You need to make sure you get a table in the Japonese... More

I wanted a Micheline quality restaurant that was not calorie laden and leaned towards fish. Sola with a no choice presentation greatly exceeded my expectations. The amuse bouche: small fois gra terrine sandwich artfully presented with a shot glass filled with wonderful fresh pea mixture . 3 small courses of fish: perfect rare bonito, pieces of razor clam; quickly fried,...
