Satsuki is a Japanese eatery located just outside the pedestrian precinct of Chamonix. Brightly lit and packed at dinner time, it was.

I was expecting a disappointment when I first saw the restaurant.  But it turned out to be an authentic Japanese restaurant.

The menu was fairly simple but the food tasted right.  The patrons were a mix of locals and visitors including tourists from Japan.

We had come across sushi joints in Switzerland run by non-Japanese asians (mostly Chinese) and many were subpar in quality and execution.  We were quite pleased with Satsuki, even its offerings are basic. An inexpensive Japanese restaurant with an authentic taste is hard to find in Switzerland.  There might be some in Geneva but we have not yet discovered them.

We went back a second time for lunch and the food was consistently good.

They have a branch in Megeve too, a ski resort in a neighboring valley.  We will revisit the restaurant when we return to Chamonix.
