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

Simply the best place for sushi in Luxembourg: always fresh, always delicious. Also, if your friends are not sushi fans, they can find a big variety of other Japanese dishes there. The staff is very nice and professional. The only minus is the quality of interiors - but it is something that one has to get used to in Luxembourg:... More

There are plenty of places in Luxembourg that claim to offer sushi. This place is a real deal. Fresh fish, good rice and masterful cuts. I have just left and I am already thinking when I will be able to return. Congratulations to the chef and if you want to see how sushi is supposed to taste – call them... More

The sushi is good, also the experience makes you feel you are in Japan. The kitchen is open and you can see the chef, the restaurant decoration is very authentic and the food is great!

Probably the best sushi restaurant in the Grand Duchy. Don't expect the fancy European sushi. Expect traditional Japanese.

I try to visit this place at least once a month, I adore evrything about it - the service (reserving over the phone is itself an example of the most incredible politeness), the furniture (tiny, cosy, authentic) and the whole experience. The food is amazing. I always had the same waiter, who is a top-notch professional. Incredibly fresh fish, excellent... More

Yamayu Santatsu offers the best sushi in Luxembourg. The sushi is freshly prepared by a Japanese sushi chef. The rice is perfect, the fish of excellent quality. The mixed sashimi is very good, so are the nigiri. The futo maki are also excellent; the temaki are also very good; basically any of the sushi is amazing. Don't miss out on... More

Undoubtedly the best sushi in town. Go beyond the location, not the strength of the restaurant: the quality of the fish takes the role of the hero. The service is courteous and the prices are absolutely fair for what you get.

The best sushi in Luxembourg, beautiful fish, authentic atmosphere. We had the assorted sushi and the bento box with Japanese beer. You will enjoy the quality of the food and you'll not be hungry at the end of dinner. The restaurant is not posh, it looks like a sushi shop you'd find in a nondescript Tokyo neighborhood and that's what... More
