You better do a reservation beforehand for dinner, because it’ll be fully booked and the place is small. It’s my fave Japanese restaurant because they have gyu tamago don, and takoyaki. I never come here for sushi nor ramen. It’s not easy to find takoyaki...More

I was turned away as a solo diner at 7:30pm as they were busy from 8pm apparently. I counted at least 8-10 spaces at the counter and a couple of small tables for 2. I do not expect any serious restaurant with fewer than 2...More

I went there with a friend last week because I saw the restaurant announced on Instagram, and the plates looked amazing on the pictures. When we received the menu, I saw that the dish I wanted to try was no less than 18€ !!! Still,...More

I'm a big fan of bento box (lunch menu) provided during lunch time. The box comprises different dishes and it's very reasonable price! This is a sort of Japanese Pub restaurants, therefore don't expect an excellent service.

Good enough to call it authentic Japanese unlike the millions of sushi joints, but there are other places more deserving of 5 stars for their commitment to perfection. The service however was friendly, the typical closterphobic atmosphere you'd expect from a real Japanese restaurant and...More

Izakaya is a well-known lunch joint, I have friends who recommended that place, but I just had an awful experience there. They open at noon but in 20 minutes their main lunch offer, the bento box, was finished (?). yes, the place did fill up...More

Both my mother and I were craving Japanese food. We shared a sashimi platter and each followed with a dish. Mum: tempura set. I: soba tempura. The usual condiments were served prior to the meal and there was tea on offer. I finished it all...More

I've come to this place because it's supposed to serve the best Japanese food in Brussels (from reviews I read online). The food is indeed very nice, but relatively expensive. But I was very dissapointed by the staff: they are all super unfriendly. We had...More

There are a few undercover politeness rules that you need to bear in mind before judging them, e.g.: 1. Kitchen as exact closing hours, 22h at night which means they literally stop serving and start cleaning 2. Reservations are a must and be ready to...More
