This is really what a sushi bar looks like in tokyo.
The chef, Kino, is something...
I highly recommend that you skip the menu, and ask him to create whatever he feels (telling what you like and don't, of course). The result will be astonishing and memorable.
It might be hard to find a place, it's tinny.
Quite a lot of japans, can't be bad!!!

I mentioned this restaurant in another review, so I had better fill the gap. For this review I will focus on the food, because I did not appreciate the lesson from one of the staff on how to eat sushi (she objected to my taking a small piece of ginger with it, instead of between bites).

The restaurant is basic to the extreme. It is small, with a traditional bench in front of the chef (Japanese style) holding about 8-9 people, depending on how friendly you are, and a pokey downstairts room - so decor (and service) is not the reason for a visit. However, the sushis are really fesh and truly excellent, and made before your very eyes by the chef. Forget about the minor downsides, if you like sushi, try this restaurant.

Ok, I do not understand why people made a fuzz about this restaurant.
I have to say this is The Worst restaurant I've ever been too!
The chef is sooo rude! The place looks miserable and filthy!
The food is not good either, the fish is fresh but that's about it!

Nothing fantastic in this place, sushi are very basic, rice is well cooked but the tuna was a brownish color. you seat at a counted with the sushi chef cutting the fish and preparing the sushi in front of you, the chef is very blunt and quite aggressive making you feel very uncomfortable and not welcome. I regret coming to this restaurant, overall a bad experience

There's nothing wrong with this small (12 seat) sushi restaurant, and it's popular with a lunch takeout crowd as well. They also do cooked dishes, so you can bring people that don't do raw fish.

It's certainly way ahead of the typical Paris sushi, but so far I haven't been as blown away as a lot of its fans seem to be. But no reason to avoid it either.
