Places Around Maastricht: Kaishu Japans Restaurant


All-You-Can-Eat Sushi!

Type of Place: sushi restaurant
Location: Jodenstraat 26, 6211 ER Maastricht

Sushi is one of those foods that people either love or hate. Personally, I adore it; especially when I find excellent tuna sashimi. That’s why Dan & I were so pleased when we first discovered Kaishu, a sushi and teppen-yaki restaurant. Every time we’ve been there the sushi and hot dishes have been very good. Excellent tuna. And a widely varied menu means there is a little something for everyone; even those of you who would rather eat your fish cooked.

The restaurant has two floors. The upstairs features a sushi bar as you walk in the front door and a lot of seating in dark wood. This floor is well-appointed in a fairly classic Japanese restaurant style (lots of reds, rice paper panels, and fans). Additional seating is available downstairs and is less attractive, but we’ve never seen the restaurant full so it is unlikely you’ll be seated there. The waitresses wear kimonos, creating a pleasant dining environment.

In addition to their a la carte selection, Kaishu has several special menus. Our favorite is, of course, the All-You-Can-Eat. For 23-25 euros per person you can order anything you want off of a special menu for two solid hours. All they ask is that you eat everything you order. The same menu is available for lunch between 1pm and 4 pm for 16,50 euros.

Other special menus are:

  • Thursday & Friday Sushi Night: 14,95 euros plus free soup
  • Take Away: various prices
  • Teppan-Yaki Set Menus: Between 45,00 and 65,50 euros

Kaishu is open 7 days a week. Lunch is served from 1 to 4 pm and dinner from 4 to 11:30 pm.

    So glad to know there is great sushi in husband has been away for 12 years so when we finally get there we’ll have many explorations in store. I’ve gained so much info from your blog and can’t wait to start a new blog as an expat in the Netherlands!

    Maastricht is a surprisingly great place for sushi. Thai too actually if you’re into that. And the more blogs the merrier. One of the great things about expats is that we all have such different experiences. Cheers!

    I found this restaurant 2 weeks ago, love the all you can eat formula. I like the place because they do not use the Kikoman soy sauce (!) and they make california handroll well. However, I wish they would include sashimi in the all you can eat formula even if it means increasing the price, the rice with the nigiri is filling me up too quickly.

    Also tried a couple of the cooked food, it’s a pity that they use the same oil for frying several different dishes and also they were served with same sauce.
