This place was excellent! Very heavy hipster vibe, but fortunately the prices did not match the aesthetic. The place feels very hip and upscale, but the prices were very reasonable for the quanitity and quality. We had the donburi, ramen, and takoyaki and thought it...More

First of all, the food there is not authentic. I would say that it is a japanese cuisine adapted for the western palates. However, it is fresh and quite good. Also, the cocktail I chose, a yuzu mule, was excellent! It had a nice flavour...More

Asian fusion with a twist. The food is absolutely delicious and the atmosphere relaxed and cozy. Staff is awesome and the pitcher cocktails never disappoint. A must in Brussels

The place is always crowded and it's far from being organised, which ends up in long waits. Although there are a lot of staff, I wonder what they are doing because patrons have to order at the bar and pick up their food when the...More

There's something not quite right with Kumiko. Let's start off with the obvious, and note that the hipster-factor here is off the charts. With furniture cobbled together from eccentric pieces of wood, a long list of available gins and craft beers and a "concept" for...More

Good gyoza and chicken brochette. Mains are ramen and donburi (bowl of rice with kelp, radish and crispy onion) only. Order, prepay and pick up your so-so food at the bar after a loooooong wait. Maybe that is why they have such wide selection of...More
