Sumo one of the many restaurants of the Geneva area we've been visiting for years. This is rather different from other Japanese eateries.. It is what you can expect in old Tokyo - real authentic yakitori, not a sushi bar. And a lot more! We...More

Small authentic Japanese Yakitori bar. A bit pricey but you get a return from the quality of dishes. Been there many times while on business trips.
