Well, it is for sure not the culinary restaurant of Lyon. Really nothing special to mention. The food is average, the service is average and the price is normal. If you want good and authentic sushi, definitively not the place to go. Consider it as a fast food to fill yourself.

Traditional Japanese restaurant with the small plates passing by on a rail system. Lots of choice. Some plates are somewhat bland, others are OK. I would drop in if close by but would not travel to it as a destination. One redeeming thing is that the prices are very reasonable for this type of food.

Good food but nothing special. Limited selection and you have to wait a bit. You need at least 20 euro for lunch. The place looks clean and the staff is nice. They also have takeaways.

We booked for 6 people and had to wait for sometime until there was a free raw of seats. Basically their self-service is on a conveyor steel belt on which there are several sushi and sashimi pre-pared dishes you can choose and directly pick-up. Quality is acceptable but not the freshes ingredients in my opinion. Price is on the high... More

Just awful. Worst sushi i ever had (that should be their moto). Wasabi was not dissolving properly in the soy sauce. That should have been the first warning. Nigiri looked expired, i still tried some and i think im sick now. Why the [] dont they remove old plates after a while? You can catch disease like that folks. Right... More

Not the largest selection. And everything on the menu was not on the belt. But everything on the belt was delicious. Very reasonable prices. My kids loved picking up what they wanted and tried new things as a result

Good food in a nice environment. Original japanese sushi chefs. Lot of variation of the sushi belt. Worth going there, but keep in mind prices per piece are quite high.

Excellent value - good choice - fresh food - reasonable pricing. Lyon offers many Japanese - this is a safe bet in an area that is not too exiting. Saturday night may need a reservation. Service is a bit slow and not overly attentive. The obvious mistake - too many beers noted - was quickly corrected but makes one wondering.... More
