“Great atmosphere and drinks, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I visited this place on a recommendation from a friend. It took me a few minutes to find it, as it's located in the cellar with a very small sign. Once you enter, it's a beautiful and romantic atmosphere. We were encouraged to have a cocktail by the fireplace, which we enjoyed. But the service quickly began to rush us and we didn't realize why...but everything in Belgium closes on the early side, and Belgians like to eat early. We had hoped for the tasting menu, but enjoyed our various options. Other than the rushed service and pressure to finish our dinner, it was a very memorable dining experience. I look forward to trying it again when I'm in Antwerp.

“Great Asian Fusion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Total surprise as you walk through the door. Best Asian fusion to be found in Antwerp, if not in Belgium. Can't recommend it enough. Excellent environment with better food and service. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

“Just perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

I have been to Japan several times and have lived in Asia for 7 years so I know how good Japanese dishes taste. Well,,,,,they also know it at Roji. Everything was very very tasty.
All the dishes that we had were very fresh, had excellent flavours.
The service was good. The waiter was very helpful with advice on the dishes and sake.
And the setting is just wonderful. We went there with friends, but it is also a perfect place for a romantic dinner. I loved it and will certainly go back.
Tip: they are not open for lunch unfortunately. I just heard that they have opened a lunch place as well in the student neighbourhood but it is more like a take-away restaurant. Maybe not the same atmosphere but always worth a try.

“Best ingredients combined into refined and pure dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

A hidden treasure in Antwerp. Going down the stairs sets the stage for curiosity; eager to see more. That same curiosity stays with you during the evening.
Everything is good. The setting in the cellar combined with a stylish rural touch with smell of the fireplace makes you feel valued and welcomed at the same time. Service is polite as well as unnoticeable. But the most important is the food. DELICIOUS.

Now the question is why not 5 stars? First you need quite some patience and money. It is worth it, as food is freshly prepared, with wagyu beef just as it is in your dreams and veggies that are crispy fresh, it just has its price and takes its time.

Sushi is an inappropriate addition to the name in my humble opinion, as it is much more with great finger food, starters and main dishes that trigger Japanese imagination.

“Trendy and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Not easy to find as it is in a (big) cellar but worthwhile the visit. It seems to be a trendy place to eat and the food was very good. The fireplace was on creating a smoky room (not excessive but enough to be annoying), eating at the sushi bar which is in a separate area at the back solves the problem. Make sure you make a reservation as it can be busy.
