It's hard to choose just one restaurant from the glut of Japanese places that line the Rue Sainte-Anne – but it should be this one. Minimal, discreet and chic, you could pass by without knowing, and miss out on a real treasure.

At the bar or in the dining room upstairs, Bizan serves precise dishes full of subtle flavours: from a surprising mackerel sashimi grilled with yuzukoshō (chili, yuzu and salt citrus paste) to an impeccable sushi assortment (special mention for the tuna belly). If you're struggling to choose, go for a chirashi: a bed of rice bearing a selection of fresh fish and a scattering of prawns, served in its own elegant box.

There are forty varieties of sake on offer, or green tea with puffed rice. It's not the most glamorous address in Paris, but an unmissable one for Japanese cuisine.
