Izumi is by far the best Sushi restaurant you can find in Belgium, maybe even in Europe. This nice place is owned by Ed, a nice Dutch man who spend a big period of his early days in Japan to Learn & master the Japanese cuisine, language & way of life. Serving you a wide variety of super fresh fish... More

A vast place in our city and in our heart for Japanese cuisine. The sushimaster Kato is a magician, a real wizz. Also the prepared dishes from the kitschen deserve being mentioned. Attentional service from owner Ed and his assistent (and ever smiling) Rosiana. Reservation is required to be sure to have a table, although we prefer to eat at... More

We have tried about all the Japanese restaurants in Antwerp and Izumi remains our favourite. Not the cheapest but surely the best!

Having visited this restaurant already several times, we took once more the tasting menu (degustatie menu). This menu is a "quick tour" through part of the Japanese cuisine and brings you a number of different dishes. For starters we received a small bowl with some herring, fresh vegetables and a sauce based on miso and broth. Next was a salad... More

Izumi is really nice. The interior is hip en cozy. The food is fresh and tasty. The service is good but a little distant. The showcooking is entertaining. The price is a little high but you get good value.

This is one of the secet gems of Antwerp. Not far from the Central Bank of Antwerp, down a nice side street Izumi is hidden behind a fairly neutral facade. Unless you know what you are looking for you would pass it. Inside there is nothing which indicates that this is one of the best Japanese sushi restuarants in Europe.... More

small restaurant but great japanese food, almost authentic. Don't go there to find the usual dimsum or sushi, but regal yourself with the authentic dishes! Book in advance.

We've been several times over the years. It's ok. But nothing more. Staff is not really friendly. Smelly entrance hall - not very welcoming. The place looks a bit dirty and shabby, which is not what you want for a Japanese place! The sashimi dishes are not very generous. You can find better in Antwerp.
