What counts is in your plate... and we were in Japan. Very nice staff for very very very good food. A must! The menus were crafted in a way that you could discover many aspects of japanese cuisine, fresh and inspiring. We'll be back !

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

Here I was really surprised. Instead of having the usual pairs of similar... More

Best fish, best sushi and sashimi. The rice is the most refined one in Geneva and most expertly prepared. Fast service with a smile. Must reserve for lunch during the week if more than 2. Superb mise en bouche !!! Bravo again we will return !!!!
