I had read the place was small so on a Saturday night i had booked ahead for 2. We were transported to japan as soon as we passed the door. We had the best seat in the house, the freshest sushi and sashimi, the most delightful service and the most quaint ambiance. For us the most perfect tete-a-tete for a... More

The restaurant is very tiny so try your luck to have a place or better still book it in advance. The sashimi is very, very good and the charming lady could be the perfect ambassador for Japanese politeness and elegance. This is not "cheap eats" but the price is correct in relation to the high quality offered. The experience in... More

Amazing japanese food, affordable and charming. It is in the middle of the city but just ouside of the tourists crowd. A must if you enjoy japanese food.

Authentic great japanese cuisine. High attention to detail and one of the only places to get proper sukiyaki. We have been coming here for 7 years and it has never disappointed.

Very good fish, typical cosy and friendly Japanese atmosphere. We tasted many Japanese places and this is THE Japanese restaurant we come back to in Brussels.

It reminded me of being in Japan. A small, quiet, family run business with great food and very Japanese service. Totally lovely. I had sushi and udon. The sushi was properly amazing and a good mix and all prepared right in front of me. I'd recommend a visit

If you love cosy's atmosphere and Tampopo's japanese movie about food, a nice and warm atmosphere, some peace and tradition in the little town of Brussels, I hope your step will bring you to the red lantern that stays in front of this tiny little restaurant. It might be sometimes full, and you'll have to come back or wait a... More

As simple as that, a taste of original Japan. The hosts, the music, the food, the ambiance, Everything just smells and feels like a small restaurant in hakone or sendai. Try it to be transported far far away

We have been visiting the Mangetsu for years and have always really liked it. There are several good Japanese restaurants in Brussels and I would include the Mangetsu among them . We had sushi and sashimi and it was up to the usual high standard. Green tea ice cream, which I love, and sorbet with plum liqueur - it was... More
