“Just under average..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Nice formula to enjoy Japanese food, although I am missing a few very common Japanese dishes..
Food in general is very average. Service is ok. The choice is also quite small compared to other restaurants offering all-you-can-eat.

“Disappointing”

Went here for a teppanyaki, but they don't have a teppanyaki table. The food was avarage and our waiter didn't speak english.
Disappointing.

“Refreshing formula for ..... big eaters”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Interesting idea: 27.5 € for as much you could eat in a cosy atmosphere & friendly welcome in a 17 century building close to St Rombouts cathedral !

Start ordering 3 entrees (sushi, sashimi ( +8€) , carpaccio...
When finished, order 3 main dishes (salmon, sea brass, gamba's)
then order 2-3 desserts....(sesame ice cream was tasty, the green tea ice average)

2 bottles of fine Alsace Pinot gris at a reasonnable 24 € /bottle ..
Total bill : 107 € for 2 hours of pleasure.

Liked it !

“Excellent dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

My colleagues and I were in Mechelen on business and came here for Dinner.

They took assidious care to explain the various dining options - including the "all you can eat". However we went for alacarte and did not regret it.

Service was attentive and efficient

Overall a fine meal - at a reasonable price - in the old town of Mechelen

“Second time there, nice formula: all you can eat made to order”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

We were there for the second time, with a party of 6 on saturday evening. All you can eat formula (cooked to order), good quality of food, wine list a bit overpriced (good beer as alternative though). The restaurant was pretty full, nice atmosphere.
Choice of vegetables is rather limited.
About 40 Eur/pp including drinks.
