Visited the restaurant last week after looking on the restaurants website and being impressed with the photos and the online menu. When we arrived, we were bitterly disappointed. We walked through the dirty entrance hall (with an old washing machine plonked in the centre) and...More

In my opinion one of the best all-round restaurants in Ghent. The no-nonsense approach of the chef in both his attitude as his creatures is certainly a plus. Also always a warm welcome by the staff, especially Sang-Yo. No doubt, this is a restaurant worth...More
