Down from Baton Rouge Pigalle feww days ago, we hoped in Momoka... For a unique experience of Japanese cuisine. We're not talking your usual suhis or Sashimis but the complete span of exquisite creation Japan can offer. Absolutly magnificent!

This is a Japanese restaurant with "attitude". There are two locations on the same street because it was very successful and needed to expand. The food is good but we found it to be "pretentious". We love Japanese food. We have travelled to Japan and we were somewhat disappointed. That being said, it is a hit with the Parisians.

The menu with dessert was very good, including about 15 different portions. Well-balanced flavors. Friendly service and stylish decor.

I like the atmosphere and the environment in general. The service was pretty good. The lack of english speakers made it difficult to order food. The set menu's were really savoury and tasty. In general Quality-Service it was really good. shame on the staff's language skills and a bit overpriced. Still would come back again.

Our B&B hosts recommeded this restaurant. It is very small and a bit difficult to find as the signage is on the window only. But what a delightful taste experience. No sushi or deep frying here only the real Japanese dishes that the owner learned from her mother as a child. We wanted to eat lightly and they agreed that... More

Staff was friendly and lots of finger gestures later, figured out what to order. Turns out there was 3 fixed menu options starting at 45 euros; which I picked. All I... More

Wonderful food, extraordinary variety and refinement. There were three of us, we had three set dinners at 68 euros apiece, plus sake. We left full to bursting and very happy. Yes, the room is tiny, charmless, mostly like an annex to the kitchen; the chairs and tables are in a kind of high-concept steel and plastic mode, though decent enough... More

We have already visited some other non-sushi restaurants in Parus (Kiku, Shu) and were really delighted with fine food. In Momoka they proposed a fixed dinner. As a starter we had a plate of different vegetables. Looked more like a home food in the countryside - not really sophisticated, but surprising. Afterwards some raw fish - which was good but...

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
