“Raw Japanese at its best”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

When you walk in to yabase you may be forgiven for thinking that this may not be a great dining experience however forget the slightly shabby surroundings and take the food and that alone into consideration. This place is purist japanese and the sashimi and sushi are some of the best i have tasted. Everything from Abalone to sea urchin and deep fried tuna heads. Full of Japanese diners makes you realise that this is the real deal. Yummy

“Now this is sushi you experience in Japan.”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Fresh fish, near perfect "shari" (rice used in the sushi) and excellent staff make this place a direct copy of Japan, and I mean the good way. I was born and raised in Japan so I know my sushi, and I have to say it's as original as it gets in Germany. Most of the people there are Japanese, which is a good sign (there's a Japanese community in Dusseldorf). I've been to other "favorable" sushi restaurants in Germany but nothing comes close to Yabase. Not only the sushi, but other menus including deep fried pork fillet's, oysters and kushiyaki (skewer grilled) were top notch and must try. To add in detail, the price of a "Moriawase" (a mash up of 10 sushi's on a plate) is 20euros. One grade higher with better toppings is 30euros, which is about the price you'd pay in Japan really, so there's not much to complain about. One thing maybe is the atmosphere is kind of a mix up with West x East. A more japanese styled interior would make the experience even better but I am fine with that after rolling a few tears down my cheak with their great sushi.

“Real Japanese restaurant!”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

I ate at this restaurant with a colleague who lived in Japan for years and we both enjoyed it. As we entered the restaurant, we saw that most clients were Japanese (there is a big Japanese community in Dusseldorf) and knew we were in the right place.
I had beef (not exactly teriyaki but similar) and was not disappointed. Will def go back.

“Great sushi lunch for reasonable price”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

I went there couple of times to get sushi lunch. They are about 12 euros and decent portion. The quality is very good. As a Japanese, I would definitely recommend this sushi place to my friends!
