We had the €20 set menu. An appetizer followed by a starter and main. For the price paid this was fantastic value..the starter alone would have cost at least half the fee in any other place...a very generous amount of raw fish. Would happily recommend

I highly recommend this restaurant! It's run by Japanese folks, which is always a major plus. The food was absolutely delicious: I had perfectly seasoned beef tataki and my partner had vegetable tempura. Very flavorful and perfectly cooked! The dessert was a green tea puff with red bean paste, coconut sherbet and a macaroon. Delicious!!! The restaurant was well lit... More

Looks neat from the moment you arrive. In our case with 3 kids. Easy to select the food, great offer for lunch, good combinations. Both kids and adults enjoyed the food, as it was really well executed. Sushi/sashimi with great texture. The location is extremely convenient, and they are fast which means there is good rotation - low waiting times.... More

Found this spot from trip advisor. It wasn't very far from our hotel which was in the Louvre area. We sat outdoors which is always lovely, it was nice to have food that we kind of knew would be great. We were fed up with trying the little Parisian spots because those are either a hit or miss - &... More

This is the best sushi place in Paris. Clean, fresh food. Presented beautifully. Courteous staff. Reasonable prices. Everyone one could want. The 20 euro tasting menu for lunch is worth every penny.

Was in the mood for some nice Sushi, so found this place on TripAdvisor and went there. Very well prepared Sushi, and very fresh fish. Service is also polite, quick and efficient. Had the "Royal Sushi sampler" which set me back €38. This was 12 pieces of sushi and Misu soup. They have both tables and a sushi bar you... More
