I am a tourist from the Netherlands/Hong Kong and went there with a local friend. I ordered shio ramen (or lamen in French) with gyoza. The gyoza was decent but the ramen was a piece of crap. It was simply not Japanese at all. The broth was of instant noodle standard and there were only two tiny pieces of sliced pork of really poor taste. The topping was incredibly disappointing: no dried seaweed, kamaboko, or whatsoever but just some pieces of crappy canned-standard bamboo shoots. Highly NOT recommended. With the price you pay there, you can easily find some other more proper Japanese restaurants in Paris.

Higuma's no-nonsense food and service makes it one of the area's most popular destinations. On entering, customers are greeted by plumes of aromatic steam emanating from the open kitchen-cum-bar, where a small team of chefs ladle out giant bowls of noodle soup piled with meat, vegetables or seafood. You can slurp at the counter or sit at a plastic-topped table.
