I'm too poor to go regularly 😂😂😂 but the food was very nice and the staff were lovely. Incredibly friendly. The jasmine/mango/strawberry tea at the end was amazing. Apparently they won't be able to get the tea anymore because of the current war which is an absolute shame :(


Reservation is definitely recommended!! Small french/japanese restaurant, just close by ikebukuro station, manage by young couple, the man manage the tables and the female is the chef.
i’ve usually eat here 3/4 times every year, food never disappoints! always great food combinations. Performance cost/quality is def high! Make a reservation and you will not regret it!


Nice young couple that manages the place. They serve well prepared dishes, respecting the nature of the raw ingredients, with great good mood and big smiles, explaining what they serve you and sharing their experience. We really recommend this place for a good meal and cool time. Do not hesitate to take place at the bar to see the cook working.
Magnifique 💫👌
