Atmosphere and service is very good and food is ok, but no reason for extraordinary high prices. The starters were much better than the main dishes. One positive remark: prices for drinks were reasonable which is not always the case in Brussels. I will definitely...More

I went here after reading about the best Japanese restaurants in town. The service here was never rushed and portions were generous -- yet not enough to "stuff one's face" and make one feel bloated. The restaurant is a bit cramped for some people's tastes....More
