The menu changes each season so it is difficult to comment on the diversity since there are only 4 menu items to choose from. Each menu is approximately 30 euros and includes a tea and small dessert. We ordered the soba noodles, but frankly, they did not have much taste and there was significantly too much roquette on top making the dish taste very bitter. My biggest critique is that the tables are too close together not allowing any privacy, and also the lighting and deco are poorly thought out. Not sure I'd go back.

Invited for a business lunch and was a pleasant surprise. It's the most authentic Japanese restaurant I've ever visited. Luckily, my launch companion had lived in Japan for 15 years so he ordered for me and it was amazing. I had a rice bowl with avocado and crab. Would highly recommend!

As with all Japanese culture, there is charm here and design simplicity. However, the food is average and the prices are exorbitant. Perhaps just for tea?

Toraya is a classy tea room where you can find different kinds of japanese teas and authentic patisserie.
You may not find the same sweets throughout the year, but will have the chance to get whatever is typical of the season.
It is absolutely worth more than a visit, but it is very pricey and was not impressed by their service, since I have been waiting a while for the tea and had to remind the staff before getting it.
