“Quirky, quick but quite expensive...”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Clever but expensive eat as much as you like for €55. Liked their meze style conveyor belt service. Drinks seemed expensive too but the variety, speed and good tasting options coming out from the chef seemed to make up for it.

Had good beef, fish and cheese options. Salad and pudding seemed limited but as this was a work meal I had little time for over-analysis of what actually was coming out of the kitchen.

Top tip #1 - make sure you get a seat that isn't too far away from the kitchen otherwise all the good stuff seems to get taken off the conveyor belt by others nearer to the kitchen where it is put on.

Friendly staff and a good buzz late at night made it an excellent option for food though I'd probably not go their if work hadn't being paying on this occasion and it was my choice!

“an expensive tourist trap”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

This place has a very clever concept of serving tapas like sushi on a conveyor belt; its window attracts lots of gawking tourists, some even taking pictures. Unfortunately, we too fell for this interesting design and flashy display. The sushi places with the same concept are different in a way that dishes cost different prices. Here everything cost the same EUR 3,50 each, which is rather expensive for a tiny bite sized plate. The food itself is mediocre to say the least, the kind you find in a very cheap place. Nevertheless, the place was packed, so this trick must have worked. I would doubt if any of this people would come back here though.

“Best gin tonic in Brussels, friendly service”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

We we're staying nearby and walked in to this sushi train style restaurant but with Spanish tapas. We sat in the front which was a bit of a mistake because the good stuff gets eaten by the time it gets to you. Notwithstanding we were also able to order so not too much of an issue. Very friendly staff and manager. Some premium gin tonics to go with the meal, generality a very nice evening and would go back.

“So expensive for so little!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Incredibly expensive just for eating tapas! (but in Brussels it is normal....)
Also, the fact that the dishes are arriving by conveyors is really reducing the variety of what you can eat.
Even if you choose the "all-you-can-eat" possibility (only for groups), still you have to adapt to what the chefs decide to prepare.
