Well located, near to Pathé Cinema Flon, interior beautifully designed, quite pricey for sushis but a very good place to have Thaï dishes. Had some problems with the bill, but nothing so important. Staff is gentle but not exceptional.

Do not take the crispy beef (boeuf croustillant) or the duck! Disgusting pieces of beef and the duck had a very strong taste of frozen... It's a pity because the place is nice and central and the service very helpful. We won't go back

The sushis are quite good, but the "hot" food is quite expensive - the price is without rice, and a simply white rice is like 8.- !

It is one of our three favorite lunch restaurants. We go at least once a week. There's always something interesting on the menu. The meal is served on large wooded trays with a variety of accompanying dishes, salad and desert. Service is friendly, efficient and...More

I visited this restaurant several times on the past and one of the reasons was due to the fact they were accepting Ticket Restaurants. Yesterday, although they still have the stick on the door with the logo they don't accept those tickets anymore. When we...More
