A very small restaurant which requires booking if you are going in a group. Tight bookings due to limited private rooms upstairs. Lots of privacy if you are with friends which is great. Nothing posh and good if are dining alone too. For a small jap restaurant they have fresh sashimi with very good cut! Not chunky like other Chinese... More

We've visited Japan last year, and since then, the only restaurant we want to eat sushi in Luxembourg is at this place. Very authentic, absolutely fresh fish and prices are ok.

I am deeply impressed by the size and great variety of my assorted sashimi rice from the lunch menu, the restaurant is being very generous! The taste of the marinated rice can certainly be better. The salad dressing for the starter is bit too salty. The staff here are super friendly!

It's bigger on the inside!!! I went there with group of friends, and although the restaurant is present in Luxembourg for over 30 years, for me it was the first time. The food was excellent, high quality, freshly prepared by chef. And the service - friendly and entertaining. The place itself is easy to miss - tiny doors hide a... More

for Luxembourg this is one of the only japanese restaurant that will serve you correct sushi.Don't expect to find cheese, bacon and other stuff, but traditional and small portions, good quality ( it depends of the days :) rolls. But my preference here goes for the hot plates like Udons, guydons, katsudons etc. But again, it depends. In Paris a... More

If you want to have a good Japanese meal, head to Yamayu without hesitation. Sushi is excellent but you can also find a lot of other interesting Japanese dishes. The interior is not sophisticated or renewed recently, but this is something one has to get used to in Luxembourg:) oh, and service is incredibly sweet and friendly!

The best Japanese food - and Sushi in particular - that I've had in LUX. Quality of fish and seafood is first class, preparation is delicious, service is very friendly and professional. The dining room is very small and you are likely to be literally rubbing elbows with your fellow diners, but you will definitely be having a great meal... More

I am a great sushi lover and I have to admit that this place might be one of the best sushi I have ever tried in Europe. Prices are not too high compared to the quality of the fish. A place you must pay a visit to if you are in Luxembourg and you like sushi.

Considered as a one of the most authentic Japanese in Luxembourg, close to the heart business district. This a small and more casual place, some private room on the upper floor. Choice of dishes is pretty large and overly well prepared. Service is friendly and efficient. Will go again there.

The service was excellent... however, let's talk about the sushi; -The rice was soaky... given that it is the most important element to create a good sushi, it is not a good start. The rice ball used for Nigiri is far too big for my taste. Had to cut it in half to be able to eat the sushi in... More
