Had lunch here and dissapointed with the food. Ordered Bento box but got sardines with a bowl of rice, also the beef dish didn't remotely taste Japanese, more like a French beef dish. Tea was good even though the teapot looked like it needed a...More

This little enclave is a crowded warren of restaurants (and flower sellers and fishmongers). Confusion reigns when it’s crowded. Chez Taeko has delicious and good-value bento boxes—pick a protein and get all the accompaniments. The three of us had fried chicken, pork, and mackerel; our...More

Very casual dining around picnic benches.Lines,little elbow room,some communication problems but still great Japanese food at reasonable prices.Bento boxes,chicken,mackerel ...are musts."The" Japanese food area around rue St Anne offers many more choices,of course,but this lunch spot in the market is a jewel.

please don't visit this restaurant - the food is at most, average japanese fare and the staff there are racist (they don't like fellow asians) and very very rude to us but very nice to other French customers.
