In context : Make a loop though the famous squares of Paris
(From : Saint-Honoré Market Square). Exit Saint-Honoré market square by the street of the same name, then turn left into Saint-Hyacinthe street and right into de la Sourdière street to get back again to Saint-Honoré street. Take the latter to the left up to des Pyramides street, which you'll also take to the left. After crossing de l'Opéra avenue, take Thérèse street and finally Saint-Anne street to the right. The restaurant is now only a few dozen feet away.
This is a very small restaurant located not far from the Louvre, in the Japanese quarter of Paris. You'll see many Japanese customers at the Naniwa-Ya, which is a good sign.
This is more of a canteen than a restaurant, and you'll have to wait during the busy hours, but you'll eat very good food (try the tempura soba or udon, or the pulp dumplings) at a very affordable price. And the place is also very clean.
Naniwa-Ya stays open all afternoon and provides unlimited free tea. Still not convinced ?

The first japanese restaurant was opened in 1963 in Molière street, and is called Tanaka.
