This restaurant is probably one of the most underrated places I've ever seen. The chef serves delicious sushi and sashimi. All of them are unique and I've never had such good sushi anywhere else.

A special place that requires passion and patience. She has quite a character but if you work her out she will prepare you and exquisite meal. I go there every once in a while and initially it was very nearly too affordable. Prices have recently much increased but stil worth it once in a while...

We knew the owner when she was working first in the 1st district and then close to the "Bourse" at rue de richelieu. The quality has even improved, a lot of imagination for the sushis and a friendly welcome A place that contrasts with most japanese places that you will find nearby

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
