Dinner at Toyo is a €99 tasting menu of 8 or 9 courses with no choice. However, they check for intolerances and were happy to offer alternatives. The food is served Japanese style to some extent and you can watch the chefs preparing it of you sit at the bar. To my taste, French cuisine influence by Japanese cuisine and served in that way worked very well as a tasting menu. Every dish was excellent and beautifully presented. As in Japan, rice is the high point of the meal. At Toyo they prepared an excellent chicken paella type dish to conclude. I had seconds and was tempted by thirds it was so good. The cost may appear high, but is a bargain for cooking of that standard.
I wondered what to drink, but no problem. The excellent Japanese sommelier recommended a range of wines by the glass to accompany a group of dishes. A full flight of 8 to go with each dish might have been over the top. So he selected 3 for us.
The atmosphere was relaxed and there was no background music. A plus for me. Service was friendly and courteous.
I think that this restaurant is a little gem just waiting to be discovered.

A winning selection of food across the ten courses. Staff were flexible with food allergies and delivered a seamless journey for our tastebuds. Great stuff.

Toyo Nakayama, formerly personal chef to famous fashion designer Kenzo, has opened this eponymous restaurant in the heart of Montparnasse in the 6th district. Toyo is an authentic restaurant with an elegant setting and a handful of tables along with a long counter, behind which the talented chef prepares his original and highly refined French gastronomic cuisine, packed with exquisite, authentic Japanese flavors.

Art. Elegance. Delicious bites of exquisite food. Creativeness. These are not attributes one would expect to associate with a standard Japanese restaurant in Paris (or restaurant with "Asian" - almost a crime advertising in such terms - food as there so many all over the city). Toyo's staff and chef are unpretentious, hardworking, quiet and extremely professional. The aesthetics of simplicity, which reigns in the setting of tableware, clean decoration, at a first glance almost may lead one to believe nothing new can come out of stove and hands of the cooks. What a mistake: try the Toyo's version of paella, or their thoughtful entrées, the thin-sliced mushrooms cooked to perfection. It's fusion cuisine that works.
