Really wonderful food, nice hot sticks and large portions of sushi. This is a smaller, family run business and you can tell. There is such a wonderful homely feel. The platters of sushi are also great value for money

Looking for good sushi in Lyon, I ended up with a friend in this restaurant, on the base of tripadv votes. The fish is fresh, but the sushi is far from being even similar to the japanese one: too much rice, not with the right taste and the fish is not correctly cut. Also the other dishes were ok, but...

Cute Japanese restaurant owned and run by a Chinese (?) couple. Food is decent but not great, and rather large portions for a Japanese restaurant.

My friend talked me into trying Japanese for the first time. As a vegetarian who doesn't normally eat fried foods, I was wondering what on earth I would find to eat...but it didn't even matter after our warm welcome from the husband-wife owners who were more than generous with their time and suggestions. It was a wonderful first experience! This... More

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 is very limited. The tofu was excellent, the maki as well, the mushrooms on brochette... More

I am Japanese and have used several times when I am in Lyon France. There are many Japanese restaurant. But, here is the best in Lyon. Tonkatsu, Agedashi-Dofu and Miso soup is complete Japanese taste. The song is a little bit old. But, it makes some "nostalgia". The price is not so high agaisnt other japanese restaurant.

Very good value for money. Sushi not of the highest calibre to be found in Lyon (try Wasabi instead, for example), but overall quite reasonable.
