A medium large place, non pretentious decor, authentic food, fresh ingredients, good atmosphere. Good choice of sake, great Japanese deserts. I would recommend for either lunch or either dinner meal.

Probably one of the best "real" Japanese restaurant in Paris. Whether you like or dislike what you think Japanese food is, don't miss this place. Count around 30euros per person.

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.

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...More

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...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
