Rare cancer awareness: don't forget to check: Help beat sarcoma
Recently I was starved for ... sushis, and I needed relief.
Sushi is an art we don't practice at home, we tried but it almost ended up in a messy divorce :-)
As you may know we moved in Luxembourg area in August 2008, we met new friends and tried to go out but we're still not aware of all the hot spots of Luxembourg.
We did some researches before landing in the Grand Duchy area. We owned 2 handful books: Living in Luxembourg, edited by the American Women Society in Luxembourg (Thanks Nury for the gift) and just arrived in Luxembourg. according to the second one Yamayu Santatsu was THE sushi place / Japanese restaurant in Luxembourg. We did tried this address back in 2008 fall when a dear Californian friend of mine visited us (2 generations back her family was already Californian, rare in such an immigration land). Back then we were already dissapointed: service was cold, almost rude and sushi-wise it was decent.
Last week I was in desperate need for sushis and didn't know any others addresses in Luxembourg to calm my addiction.
You may think, well why she's complaining? wasn't she warned? As I'm well aware that Luxembourg is a tiny country far from any seas or oceans and with more cows on its soil that banks (yes it's possible), I wanted to give an other chance to Yamayu Santatsu. And again we were deeply disappointed.
Waiters are unpleasant, haughty and ill-mannered. Don't even dare to ask questions about your order, at your own risk. It's so slow to get food on the table that I was thinking they may send the sushis to Fuji mount to have them blessed or something ...
Plates are chipped! With the prices they are charging they may invest in new ones.
Decoration is minimalist, worthy of the best of Brezhnev era, nothing look like Japanese.
The "best" for the end, let's talk about the food. Sushis quality is very poor, sushis and makis arrived on lukewarm rice !!
We won't be back!
Now we are in the look for a great sushi joint in Luxembourg, any good address to share?
