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.

Fantastic restaurant for the Sushi Lover. Great choices of sushi but no eccentric of creative options.

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.

It is certainly a strong contender to that title. Chef Suetsugu Yosuke has brought 30 years of experience as a sushi master in Japan all the way to our plates in Brussels. The restaurant is a favorite of the Japanese community, so be sure to book as it is not big and always very busy. Sushi and sashimi are fantastic.... More
