Reviews of interest

Simon Says (2015) “Très sérieux et pas mauvais du tout.”

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2015) “… with his “wine-selector” Lulie Kaori Tanaka, he has embraced natural wine wholeheartedly, breaking ground not just for his otherwise arch-conservative restaurant style but also for his neighborhood.”

Atabula (2014) “Ce que prépare AT est bon. Un repas chez lui est agréable bien que sans intérêt. Il n’y a aucune histoire, aucun héritage ni aucune vision dans les plats proposés. Le menu est un empilement d’assiettes, sérieuses et appliquées, garanties techno-émotionnelles, prêtes à figurer dans le prochain numéro d’el cuaderno Apicius. On ressort d’AT avec un étrange sentiment d’inutilité.”

John Talbott (2014) “Another blow-out experience… we had chichard (a mackerel-like fish) in a cherry-tomato gaspacho with dribs of avocado; some foccacio (much better than it was last time) with olive oil from Seville; and lieu jaune (pollack) with pdt puree and safran – with another slightly more assertive Alsatian wine.”

Le Fooding (2014) “Atsushi Tanaka, of the Pierre Gaganaire school, 34 years old, gets his kicks from reprogramming French gastronomy… definitely one of the most creative tables of 2014.”

Le Figaro (2014) “…imposant l’hypercréatif en même temps que le menu unique, l’addition cinglante et le décor ascétique… pas facile de suivre sauf à verser dans la pédanterie car il arrive que, sous couleur de cérébral, sous couvert d’esthétique, la cuisine n’échappe pas au maniérisme… un chef nippon de plus.”

    Ate there november 2016. Wasn’t impressed. The dishes are by all means very well plated, but they unfortunately lack taste. The service was severely lacking, even though the personnel seemed like nice people.

    Is to be expected at half the price. At this price point the value simply isn’t good enough.

    An oasis for tranquility and the spirit of Japanese cooking. Don’t be fooled by the rather cold greyish ambience looking in to the restaurant from the outside, its hospitality is warm and certainly relaxing compared to many places in Paris.
    This restaurant was on my list for a long time but only in August I found the time ( and table) to go to. Even though they did not serve the tasting menu is August, the a la carte menu invites you into a culinary journey through various seafood creations and the famous Wagyu Beef. The dishes can be eaten either in standard order ( starter-main-desert) or like tapas in mix and match one after another . Since the names of most creations don’t really reveal that much, it turned out that most guest where just simply ordering what the others got served , which created a real tasting experience, accompanied by natural wines which you where allowed to taste first. All this creates a very relaxing atmosphere and you really feel like a GUEST.

    The prices are very reasonable for a place like this ( EUR 10-30) for all dishes. A must have are the oysters with peas and the Wagyu Beef with hey flavor .
