“Amazing Japanese food. Just don't tell anyone!”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

This is a little gem: a truly Japanese restaurant (and there aren't many) in the 7th, just off the Boulevard Saint Germain. Friendly welcome, intimate settings and wonderful food. It's not massively cheap, but at 30€ or so for the Bento, not hugely expensive either - and frankly you don't want Japanese food to be cheap as it's so ingredient-dependent.

But it's only a little place, so don't tell anyone about it or I won't be able to get a table.

“authentic, high quality Japanese food”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

Don't let the simple interior fool you. This place is the real thing. High quality products, beautifully prepared. Service is discrete and professional. I love sitting at the counter to watch the sushi chef at work. I have only ever had lunch here and there are always Japanese clients, a good sign. Wide variety and price range of menus from about 16-30 euros ( at lunch time). It is not cheap but very fair given the quality of the food and location.

“Authentic small Japanese restaurant not far from Musee d'Orsay”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

We discovered this restaurant purely by chance while walking from Musee Rodin to Musee d'Orsay. It was a wonderful surprise. There is a sushi bar as well as several regular tables. The menu had classic items as well as original creations. The foie gras sushi was delicious! We found the fish to be excellent quality. Other than sushi and sashimi, the restaurant also serves other Japanese dishes like udon noodles. Highly recommended.

“wonderful neighborhood restaurant . Perfect japanese food”
Reviewed 18 June 2012

From the outside it looks unassuming but the tiny Yuzu is the perfect japanese restaurant in the Saint Germain neighborhood.
I have now eaten there a few times and have become a fan.
It is not cheap but the chef makes an effort to create a very varied and original menu. The bento boxes are huge, the assorted hors d'oeuvres plate is a delicious and filling sampler....all their produce is very fresh and Yuzu is fast becoming a popular address for the left bank foodies.
