Have been coming here several times a year and never dissapointed. Not just another sushi and tempura joint but a place for the connaisseur. Fine variety of freshly made beautifully presented japanese dishes. Nice location across the street from the lake.

Sushi maker is Japanese and that adds authenticity to a restaurant. Everything was amazing however, It's quiet expensive though and the portions are quite small although that's is Geneva and you can expect it
