Large selection of hand-crafted sakés by the glass, Japanese beers, whiskies, and other typical drinks. Bento of the day. Shaded courtyard in summer.

ジュネーブで一番好きな和食レストランです。
お値段もスイスの割にお手頃で、お寿司は本当に美味しいです。
I am Japanese and this is truely an amazing Japanese restaurant. I even find sushi better than the ones I used to eat back in Japan.
Atmosphere is also nice, and very spacious so you will not have to wait.
For a price in Geneve, I find it reasonable.

One of the best Japanese restaurants in GVA. It is not a cheap place (but there is no such a Japanese restaurant in GVA), but the food is of very good quality. Especially the sushi. But the Japanese grill also. For lunchtime, possible sushi menu which is not expensive at all.
And do not forget to taste the sake and the delicious sencha green tea.
The owners seem to be a Swiss-Japanese couple.

Excellent food, very fresh, some sushi are quite special (tender crab). Ordered a dish that was off the menu and very kindly accepted to cook it for me. Fairly traditional decoration. Will definitely go back to taste more.

Fantastic teriyaki beef, the meat was very tender, fresh and excellent quality: thinly sliced and perfectly cooked. The meal was actually filling which is unusual for Japanese. Geneva + Japanese food are always pricey, but this was cheaper than the sushi and much better quality than many other options in Geneva. Sitting at the bar is also beter than you would think as you get to watch the sushi chefs preparing the sushi platters fresh in front of you. Overall a good experience, I'd go back again.

Always mad keen to eat sushi when I'm in big towns. The choice in Geneva seemed difficult reading the reviews. We ended up in Sansui, which is in a small side street, 10min off the main train station. Definitely not living off people who just pass by.
The inside is as usual a la japonais: quite naked, not very cosy with small tables beside each other. The staff of the restaurant was very friendly and the food was really exceptional. You could taste that the Miso soup was home made and not out of a tin, and the two (asian looking) cooks prepared the sushi right in front of you. My husband had tempura which was good too, but he would probably have gone home hungry if I had not shared my (huge) plate of sushi with him.
Quite a pricy experience (we paid CHF150 for 2) but as we all now: Sushi is quite expensive in Switzerland ...
All in all, if you're prepared to pay this amount of money: go ahead, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
