I came across this cute little (12seater) restaurant in the back streets of Nice. After sitting and going through the extensive menu with the very friendly and smiley waitress I decided on the €16 Menu du Jour. I was treated to a tasty amuse bouche, and a flavoursome Shitake Miso. A fresh and crispy salad was followed by my main... More

The owner is very friendly. Food is good (lot of different and unusual flavors). The atmosphere is relaxed and it is a pleasure to eat there. But 32 euros for 2 starters and 1 main course without drink or desert, that seems way to much, considering the small portions. I had to eat a pizza in another restaurant to satisfy... More

Stopped unexpectedly but left so pleased. I was very impressed with the food and the service. We had a tasting menu. Each course was balanced in terms of flavored. Ingredients I had not liked prior were enjoyable. The service was personal, attentive and kind. I highly recommend this place if you have manners and appreciate finer things.

This restaurant is one of the few "true" Japanese restaurants in Nice and actually one of the pionneers of true Japanese food in Nice. Owner and chef is Japanese and waiting staff is too. The menu is fairly limited and at nights there is usually only one menu to choose from at a price of 32 euros without desert. Quality... More

We were wandering around the lovely back streets of Nice, not far from the old town, when we came across this little gem. It's not easy to find as there's no name outside, and not sure if I could find it again! But what a find - a genuine authentic japanese restaurant. Reminds me of those fascinating little eating places... More

My wife and I stumbled upon this place by accident. We really enjoyed the food and found the flavors and presentation to be excellent. The host had very limited English and we were only given the set menu. So we did not have much choice about what we were offered. Nevertheless it was an excellent meal.

We finally got a chance to check out this restaurant in Nice and I'm glad we did. The degustation menu is very well thought out and all of the dishes were excellent. I felt that the execution of each dish was perfect and above all the chef seasoned everything perfectly. I have travelled to Japan extensively so always judge Japanese... More

When you walk past this place, it doesn't look like a restaurant. In fact, it looks closed. But if you can read the little sign and open the door, you are in for a treat! As soon as my friend and I walked in we felt welcomed and since we didn't speak much french, the waitress made an effort to... More
