Discover genuine Japanese gastronomy with Sushi Shunei, the new (very) traditional Japanese restaurant in Montmartre. Here, the sushi master prepares nigiri to order, in front of you!

Have you already had the chance to taste authentic sushi, prepared by a true sushi master in a sushiya worthy of the best sushi restaurants in Japan? If you feel like going for it and discover the genuine Japanese gastronomy, head to Paris 18th arrondissement, then!

In upper Montmartre, restaurant Sushi Shunei opened at the instigation of César Mourot and Paul Dupuy. After hundreds of trips to Japan in ten years, the two friends faced reality: they cannot find sushiya in Paris providing them with the same emotions they felt in Tokyo or other cities from the archipelago. As a matter of fact, the Parisian sushi is often based on too sweet rice with a sometime too thick slice of fish.

This is how Sushi Shunei was born. In a minimalistic and clean setting, seated across the sushi master, or at a table with friends – a big difference with the genuine Japanese sushiya – Sushi Shunei is a travel-inducing experience with chef Shunei Kimura living in Paris for 40 years. On the menu, nigiri-sushi made to order by the chef according to fishing and seasons, with brill, seabream, king shrimps, mackerel, and even eel.

To pair with tea, organic wine, or a glass of sake to fully enjoy the experience!
