Theo, local financier turned restaurateur decided to make the jump into the restaurant world to follow his long-time dream to bring Japanese cuisine to Geneva. Theo fell in love with the food and culture while spending time in Japan on an exchange mission. During this time, he lived with a family in a village in Japan. He learned the language (the family did not speak English), culture and food. He loved cooking and this allowed him to learn more about this cuisine.
He decided to return to his love for cooking by opening a restaurant. He wanted to bring authentic Japanese food to Geneva’s because he felt this was something Geneva was lacking. The result is a place for socializing, learning about sake, delicious gyozas and entertaining conversation with friends!
He’s adapted his original approach to fit into the current COVID restrictions, but the main goal is still there. He has created a space for people to come with friends to relax and socialize. The idea is that while you catch up with your friends over some drinks (be it from the wide collection of sake on offer, beers, or wine) you order small bites to share and snack on. Rather than one big meal, you get to sample many small plates, sort of like the Spanish tapas model, but with traditional Japanese nibbles. It’s a big YES from us!
