Let it be said, Japanese restaurants in Paris are rarely among the most affordable addresses in the capital, and it is known only to discover the real japanese flavors, you have to pay the price. Nonetheless, there are a few Japanese tables in Paris who still and always resist the invader, and who offer dishes of very good qualitymade from ultra-fresh fishwhile emphasizing affordable menus for most budgets.

It is, in fact, a cult address in the 9th arrondissement, prized for many years by bargain hunters and local regulars.

the sourcing and the freshness products are felt from the tasting: salmon, sea bream, crab and other shrimp seem to have just come out of the water to land in front of us, ready to be nabbed by our pair of chopsticks. The same is true for the gingerof a beautiful naturally blonde color, miso souprelieved of its usual extra grams of salt, and the fermented cabbage saladcrunchy as it should be.
It now remains to choose, among all the proposals of the card plus original one than the other, which rolls will obtain your favors. We opt, for our part, for the grilled eel rolls (the restaurant does not skimp on a dish as rare and sought after as eel; pleasure!); for the shrimp tempura rolls, crispy to perfection; for the most classic cream cheese rolls, our little sweet treat, fresh and tasty; or for the crab rolls, topped with capelin roe.
