Last week I went to a traditional Japanese restaurant from 2 steps of rue Saint Anne, the Japanese district of Paris. We were 12 people for diner here is some information.
Hokkaido – traditional Japanese food
Taste of the meal
Unlike other Japanese restaurants offering sushi and kebabs, Hokkaido is a restaurant that serves ramen (noodle soup), fried noodles or rice bowls with various toppings.
I have ordered fried noodles called Yakisoba and I confess I was a little disappointed because the dish lacked a bit of flavor. My menu also included goyzas (raviolies) which were not bad. I also tasted the chicken frie unsurprisingly and the meal with tofu and meat (I can not remember the name) and that by cons it was rather interesting.
Setting The restaurant has 3 rooms including 2 in the basement. If the ground floor is rather typical Japanese restaurant in the area, but the decoration of the rooms in the basement is really basic. In short it is definitely not for the decor that you go to Hokkaido. But sorry, I did not take pictures.
Service We were 12 then taking the order was a little complicated but the waiter did well. For serving meals, it was a bit long for everyone to have his plate (between 10 and 15 minutes between the first and the last dish). Where the service a little fishing too, is to rid once we had finished.
Price The menu with a main course and 5 gyoza costs 11€. It costs around 9€ for a main course but of course it depends on what you order.
Conclusion Can do better even if it is not bad.
NB: You can not make a reservation at this restaurant and you can only be installed if your group is complete. Under these conditions, I will not deny that we have waited a long time for a table (1:30).
