“Have loved this place for more than 10 years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

I've enjoyed numerous lunches and dinners in this little restaurant.

Lunch is a bento box with lot's of fresh vegetables and a choice between fish and meat.

Dinner is a menu that changes every week and follows the seasons, you have the option to add courses depending on how hungry you are.
If you don't like certain ingredients the chef will take this into account and even create new courses as he goed along.

All the ingredients are super fresh and from biological origin.

I can also highly recommend the sake degustation menu, really fun way to learn about the saké culture in Japan and taste exciting drinks which are a good match for the dishes you are eating.

“Excellent food and a wonderful evening out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

We had a wonderful evening at Les saveurs the Yamada and we are certain that we'll eat here many times more.

We took the intermediate menu which included a small appetizer, an entree, a noodle soup, a tempura dish, a main dish and a desert. Vegans and vegetarians, you can rest assured here: you will have a wonderful meal. Omnivores: you can also rest assured that your meal will be equally wonderful.
Every single dish was excellent, surprising and made us say how happy we were to have stumbled upon this place. And all of this at an unbeatable price.

Highly recommended!

PS: there is also one real japanese table where you dine while sitting on a pillow on the floor.

“Sublime japanese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This is my go to Japanese restaurant in Antwerp. The lunch box @ 15 euro is great value for money. The husband-wife team run this restaurant perfectly. All the ingredients are first class and the taste is truly authentic. Dinner is exceptional though it might take a while when the restaurant is full of diners.

“Honest Japanese Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Nice atmosphere in good walking distance from Antwerp City Centre. They only offer a degustation menu, which was absolutely okay for us. You only have to choose the number of courses you like. All is freshly cooked and prepared. We liked the excellent tofu (you rarely find this quality in Europe) and the super fresh sashimi best. The fish and meat main dishes were lacking a bit of finesse. The full menu with all courses took more than 3 hours - so bring time with you. Very limited wine list.

“Perfect lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I've experienced Les Saveurs de Yamada only during lunch. Here's a fixed choice between fish and meat. Your lunch is served as a typical Japanese bento-box including miso soup, a dish made from either fish or meat, some salad, rice and a nice dessert. A perfect healthy lunch at a correct price.
