Atypical Japanese Food: Yamato Antwerpen Restaurant
Yamato Antwerpen – Recommended by Japanese
Yamato Antwerpen is an atypical Japanese restaurant in Antwerp without the usual sushi and ramen that you would expect. This Japanese restaurant tucked in a little corner of Antwerp South (Antwerpen Zuid) near to the Royal Museum of Fine Art (Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten Antwerpen) was a recommendation from two Japanese friends.
They live near to Yamato Antwerpen. Hence, the whole family of three went to support it regularly. They urged me to try out this inexpensive restaurant which served original Japanese cuisine. Therefore, I have the best assurance of high-quality food. If my friends swear by it, then the food must be noteworthy.
Yamato Antwerpen Japanese Restaurant Interior
The owner of Yamato Antwerpen was very welcoming and friendly. There was a young Asian woman at the bar counter preparing the food. The interior design has a woody green theme. Furthermore, the small backyard has pretty Japanese decor.
Yamato Antwerpen Japanese Food Menu
When I looked at the menu, I knew I would order many dishes from there as the food menu had many small portions of food for sharing. If you want to be full, you have to order a lot of plates from there. Below were the plates of food that we ate for two people and the names of it. They were indeed all very delicious!!!
Excellent Customer Service
The owner of Yamato Antwerpen is a Belgian who speaks fluent Japanese with his staff as he had lived in Japan before. There were two ladies working for him, a Japanese and a Korean. The boss came over and asked whether the food was good. All of them had excellent customer service. Most importantly, they prepared Japanese food that was finger-licking good!
Note: Yamato Antwerpen opens only in the evening from 6 pm and closes in the afternoon.
