The best Japanese restaurant in town. The skewers and the sauces are delicious. The fish is also very fresh and yummy! I would definitely recommend this one and go again!

Although this restaurant is helmed by an Indochine couple, it serves very authentic Japanese cuisine. Good portions, quality ingredients. You will definitely have an excellent Japanese meal. A must visit.

Nice little Japanese restaurant in the center of Lyon, yet in a very quiet side street. Welcome is very friendly and with a fruity aperitif, the waiter is helpful and always there when needed. The food is fresh and tasty, yet the choice for vegetarians...More
