I haven't been to Japan but here I felt as far as the sun rises. Warmly greeted by the friendly and mannered hostesses we got to seat at the counter in front of the sushi master for our delight. This small restaurant serves great sushi, sashimi, tempuras and a big bunch of delicious specialties that would make you like to... More

What a disappointment! We had a special shirashi for 37 euros for 4 pieces of badly cut fish (the dorade had a bone!) half a st jacques and a piece of crab. It was supposed to have ´oursin', but it did't! The portion of tempura for 15 euros was a joke! On the top the service was slow and had... More

We love Japanese food and the kids are very picky:) This place comes out high on many reviews and that's for a good reason! Chef Suetsugu knows very well his art and he'll make you taste the Tokyo flavors for the little time you spend in his restaurant! Food is delicious, it's fresh and same time it's simple! It is...

The sashimi here is no doubt one of the best in Brussels and watching the master preparing food at the bar table is a real joy. This is my first time taking ramen here instead of my usual preferences. The soup is nice and the amount of noodles is quite ok but there are only two pieces of pork and... More

Best sushi we ever had was in Sushi Yasuda in New York City, but this one gave us also joy! Pure heaven to order at the bar, and have the chef make you the best he has. The fatty tuna was really good. And of course, where can you find sushi with fresh sea urchin! Although expensive, we came here... More

The restaurant is not very big. We had dinner on a Saturday night and it was full, so booking is recommended. The tables are set in a simple, yet elegant way and the menu is huge. We tried several dishes, all of them good, inclusive of tempura, mixed grilled vegetables, Wagyu and fried chicken. No sushi, because we don't like... More

If you have never visited Japan and you wonder how genuine Japanese good food is this is the place to go without having to buy a flight ticket. Japanese (really Japanese) chef and good menu as well as excellent ingredient are the secret of this Resto. Few tables, modest decoration, this establishment invest in one thing only: the quality of... More

For a Japanese, the name of the restaurant is rather cheap. The restaurant, in fact, serves a fine dining experience. The food is absolutely delicious, though it costs. It has a much better ambiance than some other Japanese restaurant in Brussels. I was asked if I had a reservation but fortunately they fit us at the counter where you often... More

The chef is a old man , a true suhi master respecting the tradition. You feel in Japan (most of the customers seems to be japanese) and the food is really the best you can have in Brussels (in the past I try even one with a Michelin star but not so good and overpriced). The lunch menu is really... More

Second time I visit this fine Japanese restaurant. I strongly recommend to book in advance since it's quite popular. Just love their lunch menu, specially the shiari shi rice bowl with a variety of raw fish, my favourite. sushis are made on the spot as the freshness can be tasted while enjoying them. budget wise is 18€ for a lunch,...
