Authentic Japanese Cuisine when in Bruges

The Angus beef with mushrooms were divine and the other dishes we had are also worth trying: the starter with tuna fish from the recommendations and the Sushi with Wasabi on the inside for the Wasabi fans.

We went with 4 people on a Friday night. The restaurant was full but there was a very peaceful and quiet atmosphere. We decided not to go for the menu but have a starter and a main course. As starter, I had the tempura, which I liked, but € 26 is too much for a shrimp, a small piece of... More

The moment you step into the door, you are transported to a typical japanese restaurant. The food is very good and so is the service. the only downside is the price. You should expect 100€ per person.

Although we enjoyed a very good lunch, we do not agree with those contributors who feel that this is the best Japanese restaurant in Belgium and even the best restaurant in Bruges. Reservation seems necessary because of the low number of 'couverts'. The service is very professional but at the same time 'from a distance', almost scientific. the food is... More

Beautiful restaurant and an excellent meal! The chef/owner and his wife have it down to a science. They are very meticulous in all things in their restaurant. Our meal was extraordinary. Many reviews state that it is expensive; well you get what you pay for- the entire experience was outstanding.

A customer took me for lunch here. We took the Bento box of the day, and the food was really very fine, real haute cuisine, japanese way. Even the appetizers are very delicious. Taking the bento box (don't forget there are TWO layers) takes you on a culinary discovery tour of the Japanese kitchen. Very nice, but it comes with... More

The setting is great, the meal was nice, but for 196 euro for 2, we just expected more. When I compare this to Taro in London, the food tasted as good and the price tag was so much lower ... Maybe they work with better quality ingredients, but I don't taste the difference, so I wouldn't visit Tanuki again.
