A very good restaurant with nice service! You really feel in Japan when you come there , waitresses are very cute and wearing kimono! Try their miso soupe with clams - it's delicious and the selection of sashimi for two - are speechless especially thon gras ! I really recommend this restaurant for romantic or business diner ..

Fish is fresh overall but there were a few problems. First, edamame was served...cold. Second, never had I been served sushis so badly proportioned (generous slab of fish, but way too much rice, almost inedible), and not at at the right temperature. Grilled yellowtail neck was good and not that fatty. Toro sashimi serving was generous (27€) but not that... More

I discovered this place by chance. It offers very authentic Japanese cuisine. The host is very friendly and the selection offered is not you find elsewhere in france

This place seems to offer a more traditional menu than what you usually find with very fresh fish. The staff is very nice and the service is fast. Delicate cuisine. A bit expensive though. Vegan and vegetarian options are limited.

Walking in, you're immediately greeted and shown to your table. The restaurant has a kitschy feel from a different time. The servers are dressed in traditional kimonos, adding to the feeling of being in a genuine-Japanese restaurant. This is the freshest sashimi II have ever had in Paris, and I have tried some of the "best". It's a total experience... More

We stumbled upon this GEM of a restaurant by chance as we were looking for a decent Japanese restaurant in the 16th arrondissement area. We arrived for dinner at 7.00 sharp and we were the only guest. We were in Paris for the past week and its trailing the end of our stay and we wanted something Asian after all... More

My husband and I are staying at the Meridien Etoile, Paris. Tonight we tried the Kifune Japanese restaurant, it is located within a short walking distance away. It is a small, cosy, friendly and real Japanese restaurant, you see the Japanese chefs working in front of the guests. Every guest was welcomed very warmly. The food was sensational fresh, tasty...

Yes, it is not cheap, but this is the real thing : authentic Japanese cuisine in an authentic Japanese ambiance (including the suitable slight quaintness). I prefer cooked dishes, so I had a superb miso soup with mushroom as a starter, followed by white fish cooked in soja sauce as the main dish. My companion had sushi that were excellent... More

Unfortunately I didn't have a good experience at this place, which is a shame really, as I love Japanese food. Staff here seemed very stressed and overworked, and it really made you feel like you were inconveniencing them when you ask for something. We were a table of 4 and got pushed into a small... and very weird... circular.. well...... More
