I've been to the Nanaban on two occasions for lunch and I've had excellent food on both occasions. The menu is limited however the food is delivered fast, tasty and piping hot. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait for a seat as the restaurant is very popular, however it's well worth the wait. It's not the place to go for silver service customer service, it's more fast and furious, yet I never feel rushed to eat up and leave. Highly recommended, I will be visiting again. One word of advice, take some cash as they do not accept cards, there is a bank only 70 metres away with an ATM so not a big problem.

Even though going in we knew there would only be ramen, the limited menu surprised us. The ramen was good ( not mind blowing, but still tasty). The service was very ... Absent. Hello here's your menu, here's your food, and that's it. I think it's an ideal place for people who want authentic ramen and that's it. It's also a perfect healthy alternative for fast food, as the kitchen is very fast. THE environment doesn't make you want to stay longer than necessary. You come, you eat, you go. I would go back if I were craving ramen, but I would not go back to have a pleasant evening out.

I'm from Brussels and like Japanese food. This restaurant makes me so happy. When you re hungry and you want to eat quickly it s the perfect deal. You can choose between 3 meal-soups , big bowls, noodles, meat. Delicious and fresh. Just check for opening hours and get some cash ( bank close by) they don t take credit cards.
The best reference must be all the Japanese families that go eat there every day ;)
Very nice terrace too !

If you feel hungry, and you're close to Zaventem, then this is the place to go to. The menu is extremely short, but what's on offer is of the highest quality. The owner explained to me, for example, that the pork slices in the soup (if pork soup you picked) comes from an organic farm in the Ardennes. So no hormone-filled tasteless crap. Only the best.

The atmosphere is also truly Japanese, as the seating arrangement is like a U-shaped bar, where everyone can see the other guests. Nanaban is very often used by Japanese business people, so clearly, the Japanese credentials are genuine!

Smal, very simple environment ... so hard to find place. The sercice is essential and fast...but you can enjoy the real Japanese ramen.
