This is the best true Japanese restaurant, food is excellent, feel like in Japan. If you love sushi, give it a try! I recommend it to all.

We had heard of this authentic Japanese restaurant, whose prices are very reasonable at lunch during the week but jump to the stars for dinner, and we tried it at the end of August. Spectacular. Even though the owners might seem a bit curt and...More

What can I say - good food, quite.. interesting personnel (lol) and a funny authentically japanese atmosphere. The only thing I would suggest is maybe to bring some variety to the menu, as I have been eating there for 4 years now, but overall it's...More

This place is truly great and reminded me of Japanese restos in Japan. The service is quick and somewhat friendly and the atmosphere cosy. Definitely coming back although it's the most expensive udon soup, sushi and sashimi I've ever tried.

When we entered, it was busy. A lot of Asian people were there (I assume Japanese, no?), which of course is a good sign. We decided on the exhaustive menu and eventually, after the waiter found out he had forgotten us, we ordered a few...More

When visiting Yamayu Santatsu, we were directed towards the end of the restaurant, together with another group, with which we shared the table. Service was problematic. Service can be slow, but it happened multiple times that items that were ordered were not served, and that...More
