This place succeeds in giving a lunch you can NOT finish due to quantity but you want to finnish it because off its quality so you are always leaving with one button less... :D

Our first time in Aalst and our first meal was sushi boats. The restaurant is well located and the spacious is great. Reception was ok, we waited outside a few long minutes, because the restaurant was full, we started with the boats, they didn't explained to us that the price of the boats was per person, so it was around...

I ordered the Salmon Sushi Platter. The quality was very good and the presentation was very nice. The atmosphere is very authentic, although the waiters speak Mandarin and not Japanese :)! Recommended!

The location is very good. Close to public transport and big parking area. Very nice decoration and very clean kitchen. Very nice staffs with multiple languages. And the most important is the food. The modernised Japanese food without leaving the original taste. Delicious for both Asian and European tongues.

Four of us went midweek, the restaurant was quiet, we shared a cold and a warm buffet. The service and food was excellent, there is wide choice of dishes. A good place for people who want to discover Japanese food, two of my colleges had never tried the food before and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I ate here 24th June 2015 and the food was excellent. The restaurant was very quiet, service was brilliant. They didn't have an English menu but the waitress helped us to translate and understand everything. I'm vegetarian and our waitress helped me to pick out some veggie options. The food was delicious and the sake and Japanese wines recommended were... More

We tried the Ichiban rice table & menu and it was perfect. Nice sushi, nice dishes, open cuisine. We even had as dessert the fried icecream... very special. The atmosphere could be better but that's forgiven if you eat the food. Fast, nice and friendly service.
