I really enjoy the place, the sushis werevery good. I was very happy of the visit. The only problem was the soya sauce that had a very weird taste ! The service was quick, and the waitress very kind. Very cute food presentation.

The sushi was very good and isn't too expensive, but the rest was average. For instance the miso soup tasted exactly like what you get in a supermarket. The main thing to improve is service. It was unbelievably slow and disorganised.

It seems like when it comes to sushi the Chinese don't get it. There are numerous examples in Paris but at least there are cheaper than Oniwa. The menus priced between 55 and 75 Swiss Francs are horribly expensive for the quality. Miso soup is...More
