An authentic Japanese restaurant

I lived four years in Japan, and once in Brussels I struggled to find a Japanese restaurant that is actually run by Japanese. This is it. A family owned restaurant with a touch of Izakaya. Sober and calm atmosphere, ideal for couple but also business and amateurs alike. The menu is printed though... read more

This small restaurant ticks all the boxes for a good japanese meal in a quiet and cosy setting. It is managed by a very nice couple who take care of the service and of the (open) kitchen. The setting is nice, unpretentious yet comfortable. The menu is complete, with a good choice of starters, sushi, warm dishes, noodles; there's also... More

Small and intimate restaurant offering authentic Japanese cuisine. I asked for Agedashi-tofu which was not on the menu but it was kindly prepared for me anyway. Sushi is delicious as are the other small Japanese dishes we tried. I've visited Japan so I am very particular about Japanese food but this place gets 5 stars from me. Decoration is very... More

Very zen and clean... Especially the owner of this restaurant, a Madame, is very friendly and knows how to serve the cuisine in terms of order of food. You just order what you want to eat, then the Madame will serve you with the best. We had some fried chicken, tofu, baked fish, udong, cutlets, tempura, and sake. All of... More

Fabulous authentic japanese food. We went with the children for a special birthday meal, the staff accommodated our kids and made them feel comfortable. Its expensive, but good japanese food always is.

Gyoza's were good, the batter light. A delicious original was the rice in green tea seasoned with sour plum (umé?), nori and roasted sesame. Quite a discovery. The lotus root fried in batter was just right but the dish of tossed mixed veg was truly exceptional. Got up from the table wanting to return for breakfast. Reasonably priced too. Lots... More

This is a family run restaurant, husband in the kitchen and wife serving the tables. Food is good, and the fact that a lot of Japanese patronize it testifies to its genuine Japanese flavors. The selection of fish is limited however. No fat tuna, no sea urchin. These are difficult to find in the marketplace of course, but my sashimi... More

Very nice and small japanese restaurant, sited in the nice area called Ukkel (Uccle), easy to reach with metro or tram. People working there are extremly nice and caring, food is very good and traditional (many japanese guests ist the proof), the ambience is tasteful. Unfortunately I found the restaurant expensive, there is almost no choice under 25 euros, but... More

I love Japanese food, and I have tried most of the japanese restaurants in Brussels. This is the best by far. I have been several times, and I was never disappointed. Both the meat and the fish are excellent (superfresh), and the rice is cooked in the traditional way so it is really tasty. The location might be more remote... More
