Amazing japanese food, affordable and charming. It is in the middle of the city but just ouside of the tourists crowd. A must if you enjoy japanese food.

Authentic great japanese cuisine. High attention to detail and one of the only places to get proper sukiyaki. We have been coming here for 7 years and it has never disappointed.

Very good fish, typical cosy and friendly Japanese atmosphere. We tasted many Japanese places and this is THE Japanese restaurant we come back to in Brussels.

It reminded me of being in Japan. A small, quiet, family run business with great food and very Japanese service. Totally lovely. I had sushi and udon. The sushi was properly amazing and a good mix and all prepared right in front of me. I'd recommend a visit

If you love cosy's atmosphere and Tampopo's japanese movie about food, a nice and warm atmosphere, some peace and tradition in the little town of Brussels, I hope your step will bring you to the red lantern that stays in front of this tiny little restaurant. It might be sometimes full, and you'll have to come back or wait a... More

As simple as that, a taste of original Japan. The hosts, the music, the food, the ambiance, Everything just smells and feels like a small restaurant in hakone or sendai. Try it to be transported far far away

As a sushi lover I'd expect something better in restaurant run by native sushi masters. To be hones, the food was absolutely not bad, so for a quick lunch it is a very good place.

I ordered "Chirashi Sushi" as a lunch menu, but the rice was plane rice. The rice of Sushi should be vinegar taste, of course! I complained to the chef and he changed rice to Sushi rice, but it still was not real Sushi rice. I feel so sorry if the Japanese chef of Mangetsu make imitation Sushi regularly to people... More
