The restaurant offers great food at an affordable price. For EUR 13 lunch menu, you have two appetizers, a miso soup, a decent main course and green tea. The only problem is to book a table in advance.

I had dinner with several colleagues and we ordered sashimi assortment and sushi assortment as well. It was simply delicious, with an amazing quality of fish, which was melting in a subtle and sublime way in my mouth. We arrived around 19.30 and it was not that busy, but when we left at 21.00 it was fully packed. Word of... More

Worst service ever! The waiter totally ignored us. Served main course before starters and it took awfully long time to get the food at all. Worst restaurant experience this decade.

We were 9 people. We ordered together but we received our food one at the time after 15/20 minutes even 30 minutes one after the other. When we told to the waiter that we still were waitin' for the rice he complained with us that we told him already 3 times. Unbelievable. The receipt was in japanese or in a... More

Wheb in Brussels, give... More

I work nearby and I go at least each month to Yamayu Santatsu for lunch with colleagues. No baroc design, just fast and excellent food, with the cosyness and businesslike efficiency typical of when I was in Japan.

First class food with Japanese chefs, a lively Japanese clientele and produce flown in daily from the Tokyo fish market. Bookings are absolutely essential.

I have been told so much about sushi in that place, and quite frankly I didn't think too much of it. Don't get me wrong, the food was absolutely fantastic, but didn't set new standards for me. What I really appreciated was the extraordinarily authentic atmosphere, which made me feel just like I was in the middle of Tokyo. The... More

Very authentic Japanese food, go if you love that! Business lunch is quite affordable and usually quick in service, especially the chirachi
