As I have lived in Japan before, it's very hard for me to find a quality Japanese restaurant in Toulouse. But this one.. trust me, it's authentic, and the products are super fresh and tasty! Though it's very small and better to reserve your seat(s), I always feel like in Japan when I'm there :)

You can tell just by seeing that the food is healthy but on the other hand, the portion was not enough for me. You do not have choice they have fixed menu for each day of the week only for lunch. I was lucky I called 15 minutes before I walked in and there was one sit left. The main... More

It is a small japanese restaurant. I'm not a big fan of japanese food and for that reason I'm not too objective. But the menu is too short and sushi rice wasn't too fresh. You can see preparing food on live.

Run by Japanese chef, and you feel like you are in Japan. Food is casual family meals that you have at home in Japan. It is only open till 19:00. 席は10席くらいで昼だけだけど、日本にいる雰囲気で家庭料理や寿司を食べれます。

Small cosy place with a reduced selection of plates. Normally they have a menu which you will not regret having. The place is tiny, so make sure you make a reservation. Only open for lunch! Enjoy!

This was our first meal out in Toulouse. Quaint and pretty little restaurant down a quiet road. Very friendly waitress and helpful. Small inside and sweet atmosphere. Nice and quiet and relaxing for us. Each day has a different set dish. We had cold miso soup with noodles and vegetables. And as a main it was grilled Scottish salmon on... More

We have some excellent quality Japanese restaurants in the U.S. but nothing prepared me for this tiny, tiny restaurant in Toulouse. There is one chef, he makes everything. He sources all of his ingredients locally from the commercial markets. They are very fresh. You do not choose what you order. They had the best miso soup I've ever had the... More

FINALLY!!!!! a REAL Japanese restaurant in Toulouse, I'm so grateful! :) The menu is simple, not much choice (plat du jour and dessert) depending on the day it varies (tuesday and friday fish arrival, so fresh sushi!) a "must" for anyone that loves Japanese food or just wants to enjoy a delicious snack. Bio products! Very tiny place (12-13 people)
