Although the owners/chefs are not Japanse, I don't think you can find more authentic Japanese food in Ghent than here. I've been here a few times now and the quality and diversity of the food are amazing. It's not cheap, but it's so worth it!...More

The greatest Miso soup I've ever tasted. Excellent service, the whole meal was fantastic and I felt comfortable dining solo. The chef even encouraged me to try eel for the first time and it was delicious.

It had been a few years since we've last visited Amatsu. The food is still great; very fresh and jummy, the staff friendly,... Amatsu is still the best Japanese restaurant in Gent!

Some of the best Japanese I've had outside of Japan. I especially liked the sushi and tempura shrimp.

My family went to Amatsu, expecting that we could eat a genuine Japanese food in Ghent. We ordered a Sushi nigiri and a salmon teishoku, which totaled to be around 50 Euro, but the quality wasn't that great and the quantity was also rather less.
