As it was the fair time in Düsseldorf, I reserved well in advance which is advisable, unless you want to wait around 30-60 minutes for a table. It is a busy place where people sit next to each-other, no romantic atmosphere. Sashimi, Chirashi, salads for starters and a fine Sake to accompany it were our choice for that evening. Everything...

If you have money I would recommend it once. Looks nice but you can find other alternatives in the city far more cheaper and, my opinion, more delicious.

With a line out the door and a 40 minute wait on a Thursday night, we knew we were in for something good at Yabase. Sushi and sashimi were very fresh and tasty. Atmosphere is loud, bustling and tables are tight together so if you're looking for quiet, romantic night over sushi, this is not the place but if you're... More

One of the best Japanese restaurant in Dusseldorf. Good point is, I think the fish is very fresh with high quality. This makes naturally better Sushi. Table and room is clean and feel comfortable to be there.

We came at 9.30pm on a Friday evening and the place was full. Do not expect atmosphere, the setting is utilitarian at best, with one table next to the other and no special attention being paid to decor. Yet the fish was just great, very soft, and wonderfully fresh. Service is very quick and good as well. What I did... More

Yabase is simply the best! Authentic fresh japanese food. I love the bento boxes at lunch time and they are really fairly priced. As far as I'm concerned just everything on the menu is delicious. I drive all the way to dusseldorf from holland especially to eat here just because the food is so good! Alot of others have discovered... More

Didn'treally enjoyed the food have defenitely better sushi in the airport. Had to wait 20min for a table, and what we got was a little space in tge middle. The tavles are distributed as a casino of a school, completely unfriendly. I really do not recomend it.

I tried a few other of the Japanese restaurants in the area but Yabese wins out head and shoulders for simplicity and authenticity. Very well prepared Japanese food in an authentic setting with attentive and friendly service.

Took my team to Yabase as it was recommended by a good Japanese friend from Düsseldorf. By background I also lived in Tokyo for a year so I have a basic appreciation for what good Japanese food should look like. This restaurant is among the best Japanese restaurants I've been to in Germany. Basic dishes done well and served fresh.... More

Trust me, as a former Tokyoite, this is the best sushi I have had outside of Japan. Every fish was amazing, and this was the best tempura I have ever had. The soumen noodles were wonderfully refreshing on a hot day to boot. Excellent atmosphere, good lunch sets and the staff speak English.
