Good quality japanese

Very nice Japanese restaurant, it's not the cheapest (we paid about €65 each for a generous meal with wine) but very good quality, the service is friendly, attentive and professional and the decor is nice, simple but elegant. Recommended.

I usually go to Yamayu Sansatsu which is next door to me and even if it´s expensive the quality and freshness of fish are unbeatable...not eccentric choices but delicious fresh sashimi and sushi and good service. I have lived 10 years in Barcelona, going frequently to Yashima and Shunka...I know my Japanese food...We arrived at Nonbe Daigaku for dinner, the... More

We used to love this restaurant, expensive but compensate by very good food quality. However, quality is clearly going down. We ordered a tuna/salmon sashimi (40 euros - 9 pieces) with old salmon and mixed tuna quality, a beef filet super elastic and too cooked scallops. Raw food is now mixed wih a lot of spices and strong sauce in... More

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.
