Don't be confused between the original and the new one they have opened not far away. New one not bad , but no where near the quality... and as per CH norm , same price... So go to the original would suggest a decent business lunch and definately reserve as full most of the time looking for better Sushi but... More

First, you definitely need to book a table in advance. In my opinion they serve the best Japanese food in Geneva. "Thon gras" sushi is highly recommended: it literally melts in your mouth. Temakis are also unbelievably good: unmatched seaweed cone and sashimi freshness. Note that it is expensive (paid 140CHF/person -only drank a beer). Also the place could be... More

Great japanese food in a tiny restaurant once called Yamakawa and founded by a japanese woman who pioneered japanese cuisine in Geneva in the 1980s. The owners of Kakinuma took it to another level - it's always full - so they recently opened a second restaurant a few blocks away.

I love this restaurant and it was always very complicated to book a table there but they just opened a new restaurant in Villereuse ! The quality of food is exceptional and the service is good. Would 100% recommend it.

It was my first time at Kakinuma. I can safely say it's the best Japanese restaurant I have been to in Switzerland. My friend and I chose the Sukiyaki menu. It's a four course menu, starting with two [warm] starters, followed by a sushi platter or tempura. I chose tempura and my friend chose sushi. Both were delicious and freshly... More

So far the best Japanese restaurant in town! The owner/sushi-chef was one of the first sushi-chef in Geneva at Ushino (Japanese restaurant in Versoix), therefore has a particular know-how with sushis (of course) and customers in Geneva. Some would say it is too expensive, but compare with other Japanese restaurants in town, it is way worth it!Try the Toro and... More
