Eating at Kamo will wake all your senses up! The ceramic plates are a joy for the eye, as is every dish's presentation and execution. The perfumes will take you on a journey through Japan, and as you dine, you have a permanent view on the kitchen where you can admire the staffs precision and care for detail. We had... More

The Kamo restaurant is a must for all lovers of Japanese cuisine. I'm a fan of the kitchen and I can say that all the good restaurants of this type, Kamo really apart. It is delicious, original, the place is very simple, the price / quality report is excellent, and the menus are really great ! The staff is very... More

I have been there more than once and never been disappointed by the food, the service or anything else. I always had a 3 or 4 course-menue and each time, I was surprised by the quality of the products, the innovation and originality of the plates. Dining as a couple at the bar just in front of the "Chef" cooking... More

Very good cuisine, very tasty and quality products, but it was not even an aperitif for me...when I left I was starving...not to mention the price...which is half of a normal rent in Brussels... therefore, I would not recommend this place to people who like to eat tasty food at a good price. There is no good price there.

There is a lot of hype around Kamo because of its status of first Japanese restaurant to be awarded a Michelin star. Went there for dinner with friends and was not disappointed. The food was very good and the atmosphere very pleasant. Prices are not cheap and having travelled to Japan quite lengthily I would not call it as exceptional... More

Great service (Japanese staff) and cuisine (Japanese cook). A bit pricey but the 15 euros plat-du-jour is good for the value. Be sure to come at the opening of the doors since the plat-du-jour is limited in numbers (this to improve the quality). The kitchen is open, there's a counter and tables, yet it's rather small. Better book in advance.... More

I was here recently and back in 2009. Both times were great culinary experiences. Former chef from Tagawa (which is now closed) started this place and cooks here regularly. Really innovative menu, which really delves you the Japanese culinary tradition. Highly recommended, but come bearing a heavy wallet...
