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. I sat upstairs and had to go up a narrow staircase. However, the quality of... More

I like this place a lot, but I only go there for business lunches; the portions are small so it all becomes a bit pricey in the end. Classic Japanese but with also offer options with a twist (passion fruit sauce). Attentive service, which is rare in Brussels. Location is not the best and you will probably ask yourself if... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal here, but it was a bit pricey. The quality of the ingredients is excellent and decor is simple and calm. We were able to customize our menu which is a lovely surprise.

Quality of dishes is good and well presented, and tasty. But pleasure fades away too quickly because of small portions and very high prices. Example, the pork belly in soja is a favorite but there were just two small mouthfull pieces for around 20 euros. Sakes are good but also very expensive. Funny was that people next to us ordered...

Do not go too late. The full menu is exellent but there are so many dishes you end up very late. 100€/person. But all worth it. Great adresse

Samourai is for me the best Japanese restaurant of Brussels. Besides the sushi and the tempure (that are excellent, but I think you should have something else there are the menu is so rich) they have fine japanese cuisine. I am in love with the crabcakes, the baked liver on the eggplant, the medusa,.... Make a reservation as the restaurant... More

Nice place, a bit small but with a good atmosphere. Wheras the other food is also ok, the Sukiyaki is especially delicious. It is not particularly cheap, rather quite expensive. For example they charge 9 euro for a - quite average - glass of white house wine.

Good service, fresh sushi, and - most importantly - at last a nice Japanese restaurant for a third date or so. The price is fair, I like it.

Samourai serves classic Japanese dishes in very good quality but at overly high prices. If this restaurant had been in Japan, I would have given a lower score.
