“Best Japanese cuisine we have ever had”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

Located in the St Germaine precinct this was a lucky find for us. After a heavy French lunch we were after a lighter Japanese dinner and we certainly hit the jackpot with this restaurant. Between the three of us we had the sashimi, foi gras sushi roll and the dragon sushi roll. We received a complimentary miso with clams before the main meal arrived. The food and presentation were superb and reflected the depth of experience of their senior Japanese chef. The service was also superb - very efficient and friendly and the staff are fluent in English. Prices are very reasonable, particularly for the quality of food. For the 3 of us the meals plus tea and mineral water cost 63 euro - we left 70 as the service certainly justified a modest gratuity.

“Excellent Japanese”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

This is a new restaurant and they're trying hard to please. We enjoyed some of the best tempura we've ever had, along with some equally tasty gyoza and entrecote with the chef's "secret sauce". The staff was welcoming and friendly, and the restaurant was quiet and very clean. We'll definitely return.

“Good Sushi for Paris - Actual Japanese Chef”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

I have been pretty disappointed in the Sushi in Paris. Most seems to be Chinese-run restaurants with the same menus. Shinseki is different. I found the food very good and the selection was quite nice. They do different rolls, as many Americans are accustomed to, such as a Dragon roll and Volcano roll. The server's were very nice and they spoke English as well. They were very welcoming to us, as tourists, as well.
