Went to the same French cafe (Lumiere region) for past three meals after arriving Lyon for business, the different cuisine and restaurant became a must. This is my first visit to Lyon. Based on hotel recommendation, my colleagues and I hopped on Uber and 10 minutes later, we arrive at TOMO, a Japanese one. A nice surprise that we have... More

Tasty, but one of our dishes (chicken) was not cooked properly. The Tuna Sashimi was lovely though (a nice surprise miles from the ocean !), and the rest of the food was tasty and well prepared. Very popular amongst locals, so worth a try.

Tomo had been recommended to us by the hotel concierge given that we wanted to eat Japanese. Looking for some sushi we arrived at Tomo, unfortunately for us there wasn't any sushi, only traditional Japanese food. The meal was good, we had a few appetizers consisting of Sashimi, Tuna cakes, Miso soup which was excellent, nice sesame beans and some... More

I went with something safe. But my dining partners had the menu de marche. What I had was delicious and they commented the same. The food was presented in an imaginative way. This restaurant has a very calm and quite atmosphere.

Been here during business dinner, thanks to a suggestion of japanese colleagues. Customers are often japanese people working and living in Lyon, and this is for sure a good signal. PLUS: + Food quality + Atmosphere: 100% Japanese, relaxing and quiet + Cost 40€ x person Suggestions: go for sure with Sashimi and Tempura, but dont forget to have Udon... More

It is a very simple, elegantly clean restaurant, real Japanese style decor and the food so authentic, and delicious, and presented with great taste, good quality fish and sake selection. The service is extremely friendly and quick, and the prices are really optimal for what you eat.

We had dinner at Tomo and based on Tripadvisor we were expecting fantastic dinners, based on our American sushi experience. The fare was Japanese but not rolls or sake, but it was good. We each had a rice vinegar bowl, mine with salmon and my husband with tuna (we asked to substitute noodles that were on the menu but they... More

We were happily surprised with the market menu: a nice tastes progression through the courses.. Starting with the simple but perfectly cooked beans with sesame seeds, gently seasoned...to the best tofu we ever had...to a simply delicious barbecued porc with subtle japanese flavour...and after 5 or 6 courses, finishing with a green tea ice-cream! nice atmosphere and attentive service: discrete...

I went here with my husband and two friends at their recommendation and enjoyed the meal. It's more traditional Japanese than fusion, which I appreciated: the ingredients are on the French side but the preparation is more Japanese. They have a standard menu as well as two formules that change semi-regularly. My husband and I both took the market menu... More
