Great sushi

We had sushi here with our family, sitting outside in the lovely Muntstraat. Apart from the fact that the waiter did have some trouble understanding our order, we had a great time. Fresh sushi, diverse and enough and tasty. Took the left-overs home.

Good place to eat sushi! Fresh fish and nice presentation. The sushi chef make everything in front of you. We also ordered hot food, it was well done and tasty. I will recommend this restaurant, if you want to eat fresh sushi!

Simple: this is the best sushi in Leuven. Try the Ebi Tempura Prawns or Spring rolls as an appetizer, and you'll only need a sushi for 1 menu (or 4 handpicked rolls) to eat for 2. Call in your order or reserve your table on time (evenings and weekends are very busy). We won't try the nigiri rolls (with salmon... More

sushi is cheap, but there is too much fish in the makia and not enough rice. Some would say it's being generous with the fish, but I think the rice adds valuable texture and flavor. The nigri has the same problem too, just feels like sashimi, but with another part of the fish.

After we were seated, it took a waiter 20 minutes just to take our order. After one hour more waiting, minutes before we would leave as a dissapointed customer, they brought our sushis. Very tasty indeed, but their policy of giving take-away priority to the people eating in the restaurant is one they should step away from. Next time, we... More

Very nice place to have sushi, and relatively cheap too. Love the assortment to choose from as they also have other Japanese food. The place is just not as cozy as other places.

The sushi is top quality, everything is very clean. I went there several times for business and with family. If you can sit outside, there are about 3-4 tables, that's great. The interior is pretty dull, nothing special.
