The food here is good, thought the service isn't. I went one friday night without booking, to be turned away as it was full. Fair enough. I then re-booked for a lunchtime special, hoping for a sushi bowl. On arrival I was told that the sushi also has to be booked, and is not available after 12h30. No apology given.... More

This is the real deal. You're gonna have the most authentic japanese experience you can have in Brussels. It comes at a price, but it's clearly worth paying for.

I had to reserve to have this special Chirashi-sushi before hand. It was a bit difficult to find a parking spot near the restaurant, but it was worth it. The portion was so big and the quality was so good. It was the same as what you get in Japan. Some people say the price is high, but it's the... More

Fish is at high standards here. Prices above average, but quality can justify. Also meat dishes are not bad at all. Atmosphere is authentic and there are also a couple of nice private rooms where one can dine on the low tables à la japonais. The most friendly staff is behind the counter (the Japanese chef is a happy hero... More

My wife and I had been looking for a good sushi and sashimi restaurant for a while and after being recommended this establishment by a few acquaintances, We went and gave it a try and since then, we've been back two more times. Granted, the prices are almost as high as the quality in terms of sushi and sashimi but... More

The quality of the fish is excellent, but the prices are in line with the quality, high. It is worth it though. Recommended.

Particularly good sushi/sashimi place at the city end of the Chaussee d'Ixelles, run by Japanese. We enjoyed mixed sushi and sashimi platters - not cheap at €30 each, but worth it. Service for one of us was a bit slow, but still recommended. It's very popular and if the ground floor is full, they also have an upstairs floor.

Quite authentic Japanese food and atmosphere. Be transformed to a small eatery in Tokyo right in the heart of Brussels. The miso, nigiri, goyza, and teriyaki chicken were all spectacular. I visit Tokyo at least once a year and every time make a gastro tour out of my visit. Yamayu Santatsu is competitive with good places in Tokyo. We will... More

The restaurant offers great food at an affordable price. For EUR 13 lunch menu, you have two appetizers, a miso soup, a decent main course and green tea. The only problem is to book a table in advance.

I had dinner with several colleagues and we ordered sashimi assortment and sushi assortment as well. It was simply delicious, with an amazing quality of fish, which was melting in a subtle and sublime way in my mouth. We arrived around 19.30 and it was not that busy, but when we left at 21.00 it was fully packed. Word of... More
