#93 Nice vegan dinner at Japanese restaurant Amatsu, Ghent

Restaurant review #93 – Amatsu is a Japanese restaurant in the city of center of Ghent (in between the Korenmarkt and Vrijdagmarkt – close to the city hall).

I had seen restaurant Amatsu mentioned on one of the Belgian vegan facebook groups. Amatsu has a vegetarian menu standardly available, which can easily be veganised.
A vegan friend telephoned and Amatsu said vegan was no problem, and so she made the reservation for the four of us (all vegans).

It was a beautiful Summer evening and we sat on the terrace at the back of the restaurant (very spacious!). It was a Saturday evening and the terrace soon filled (so I definitely recommend making a reservation).
Overview of our menu: (29€):

small appetizer, edame beans

Drinks and edame beans

Edame beans. Japanese soft drinks (too heavy on sugar! and overpriced 4€ each!). Other drinks were sparkling water 4,50e for 1/2L and tonic 2,50€).

The food was very nice. Lovely combinations, and some vegetables that are rather rare!
I don’t have any photos from the interior of the restaurant, but walking through it on our way and out, it transpired a nice relaxing feeling.
Toilet was clean. Nice tile colours too and a beautifull decorated sink (with flower print).

We had a very nice dinner at Amatsu. Definitely good value for money. Great food, very friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. Recommended!
