There are two ways to overprice one of which is small quantities Quality is brilliant but the place is not for the... masses. Best to avoid if without a thick wallet or eat before and visit for the atmosphere enjoy some special sake and some Japanese tapas.

High prices and very small servings. I was tempted to order two appetizers but decided not to since I thought it might be too much food. When my tiny bowl of squid arrived, I realized there was no reason to worry about too much food in this place. After the main course, we ordered some sushi and sashimi to fill... More

The best Japanese I tried in Brussels. High prices for high quality. The chef is very serious about his fish. Special dishes changes regularly. Urchin, Wagyu, crayfish, all dressed to perfect taste. Book well ahead as it is really small.

It's a miracle being exactly at 12:00 during the weekday I managed to get one place for lunch without reservation. In the next 45 minutes the restaurant was completely full. Lunch menu was very good and inexpensive. The sushi ordered in addition looked fabulous (vide the picture), however the sea urchin tasted really bitter. Shame, for I'm a big fan... More

Best sushi I've had in Europe. Small unassuming simple restaurant, no frills. Not cheap but not extortionate. For the quality you get it's worth the money. Next time I will book a place at the counter so I can watch the food being prepared by what I would consider a master of his art.

Came on a weeknight but still made reservations. Place was relatively full. The sashimi was truly excellent but quantity less than we expected. The fish in the chiraso was also excellent but again, at 31€ we expected more than what we got (regular size bowl of rice topped with fish). All were excellent and while I do expect to pay... More

Absolutely stunned by the amazing Japanese the chef serves here. Before visiting Nombe Daigaku I did not tried sushi before. Since then I have visited many other Japanese restaurants, but none of them were as delicious, fresh and served with love as here.

I have to say that it's a place worth visiting. Raw fish is really good and I liked even sushi scampi which normally isn't the case. I also highly recommend a bowl of rice with raw tuna and soya sauce. A few points to improve: miso soup and wine sold per glass.
