Vraiment très bon et authentique. Je reccomande, si possible, de prendre le repas dans un bento box. Very good and authentic. I reccomend, if possible, that you have your meal in a bento box.

The service is friendly and speedy. Found though not fabulous is authentic and delicious. The bento set is value for money.
