“Ok food, rude staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

A friend and I met here during lunch time. The place was packed and we didn't have a reservation, so we found a spot outside. Since it was so hot and sunny, we asked if the awning could be pulled down. After 2 waiters said "non", we finally found someone from the kitchen who was willing to do it.
We both ordered the daily menu (formule) of a salad, ramen, and dessert. Everything tasted just okay, but I have definitely had better ramen elsewhere in Lyon. The dessert was a piece of cake with a green tea cream. Although the concept was nice, the cake tasted like it was made 3 days prior. After this first experience, I don't see myself coming back.
