Planet Sushi is one of my favorite sushi places in Paris, partly because I love the hip/modern/ridiculous decor; lots of pink lights everywhere, flatscreen tvs in the walls usually playing fashion shows, dance-y music blaring (although one time we heard Guns N' Roses), etc. The clientele swings toward young, hip, and international; it seems like I'm always seated next to someone who's speaking a language I can't quite place but I really really want to. The staff are always very nice and friendly, and the food is good, with a few interesting, fusion-y things on the menu. The price is little bit higher than the typical Japanese restaurants in Paris, but I'm happy to pay a little extra for the fun atmosphere.
