We wanted a brief change from French cuisine and wine, but this was a mistake. The restaurant was mostly empty at 730 on a Friday and stayed at least half empty. The menu is limited (no option for a la carte sushi/sashimi). We had a small sashimi plate, along with eggplant and clam/shitaki plates. All were mediocre and overpriced: the sashimi was a bit tough and not very flavorful; the clams were small and uninteresting covered by some standard shitaki; the eggplant had a nice sauce, but was not special. We were going to order more, but decided to go to a wine bar, which had better food (plus wine!!)

Excellent restaurant: cozy interior and very friendly and efficient service; the food was very authentic and tasty; presentation was great as well; we had some sashimi (very fresh, great cuts, great fish), unagi and chicken teriyaki (rich in flavor, perfect texture); portions are not huge, but by selecting a couple of dishes to share, you should be fine; great sake selection as well; prices were ok for Paris; I will certainly be back!

We stopped here for dinner and have to say the food was amazing. Tapa sizes and with the 2 of us 5 dishes was plenty. We had the tonkatsu, tako salad, croquettes, tempura and eel. The sesame flan was fantastic. Will definitely return.

Unexpected fantastic experience of great japanees and fusion food. The place is small, tables are minimalistic but comfortable. The food in one word is amazing!!! Fresh well tasted well prepared. Aubergine from heaven, cod prepared as of sitting at the beach from a fresh roast in fire. Some 2 michelin star chefs should taste this and understand how to change the taste experience.. Price quality in this place is absolutely in balance. Ps and the dry sake hot and cold are from a very high quality, please try it!
