“Traditional Japanese restaurant with French fusion influence ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

Good service, friendly and family.
Japanese traditional food cooked very well (miso soup, sushi, sashimi also with cooked fish). Fantastic the foie gras in soy sauce (French fusion). Otherwise, wine cart to be reviewed: quality and quantity of the wines can be improved.

“Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

The decor is not what one would expect as it feels like a French bistrot turned Japanese restaurant. And a popular one actually, with local customers, Parisians and quite a few Japanese in-pats. The menus are in Japanese but they have a few copies in French too. The food is varied and has flavour. The service is attentive and smiling. Overall nice. If anything somehow still, a little cold.

“Authentic japanese ambiance and food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

Even though this small restaurant is far away from the other Japanese restaurants area in Saint-Honore, it is a perfect spot to taste fresh fish or delicate tofu dishes. All the employees here are Japanese, including the cooks in the spotless open kitchen. Go crazy with anything in the consistent menu or the menu of the day. The waiter and also the owner will be more than happy to give you all the details you need in French or even in English. Highly recommended!

Simple and tasty Japanese cuisine revolving mainly - but not exclusively - around fish (raw & cooked).
Excellent service, passionate chef and all in all a very good experience.
