Trendy and unique in its kind in the interior design. The dishes are very tasty as they use high quality ingredients (well I think so). The main downsize is the portion which is very small compared to what you can find in the neighborhood / same kind of restaurants. Also, the price is a bit more expensive than the nearby... More

Had heard a lot about this small/casual place - Kunitoraya. Walked all the way from louvre to this place for lunch and was worth it. The hot udon shrimp tempura noodles were awesome little steep in the pocket though but good enough to last for couple of hours. We also tried the chicken and egg rice which was decent better...

The Japanese are great with French cuisine and now the French have some great Japanese Udon. This small shop serves a great selection of hot and cold Udon, along with other classic small side Japanese items like Meintaiko and Umeboshi. Highly recommend. You are likely to wait, however. The shop opens at 7. It fills up immediately which means you... More

Don't bother if you're dining alone - they don't want you. I was told no when I said I was alone even though there were tables available, then they reluctantly seated me, then I was asked to move twice until I ended up in a dark, dirty corner. I never got served. Finally got up and left.

I was searching for a restaurant near the Louvre and found several recommendations for this Udon noodle restaurant. I also read that you need to arrive before they open and hope you are among the first score of people in line because that is all they’ll seat to start. The line outside was never less than a dozen people the... More

We came here a few days ago for dinner. The place is really really tiny, but what it lacks in actual space it makes up for in yummy food! I had the udon with fried tofu and my boyfriend had the shrimp tempura udon. We both became completely engrossed in our meals, focusing on eating the hot hot delicious noodles.... More

We really enjoyed our lunch. We had to stand in line but the line moved quickly. Great service and excellent food. It was fashion week when we ate here so it was a very interesting crowd. Can't wait to go back!

We had lunch. They have rammen soup, rice bolls with different toppinps, several entrance and desserts. The team is friendly and you normally will have to wait outside before getting a table. The place is really small but worse waiting. They don't have lunch menu just menu a la carte. We enjoyed our food. Don't miss it

If you like Japanese Udon noodle, this is the place to go in Paris. It is a nice break from French and other Western food. It is located not too far from The Louve.

A great Japanese restaurant in Paris - this means the food is great but it doesn't come cheap and the portions aren't so big. But if you're in the mood for enjoying a quality meal at upper mid-range prices (just a normal bowl of noodles alone starts around 15 EUR and the prices go up from there), this place is... More
