My Japanese friends like it

I tried twice this restaurant with my husband and we were pleased. My Japanese friends have advised us as having as far as possible traditional Japanese food. The environment is as well nice, with option on tables where you take off your shoes and sit around low tables. My husband likes sushi... read more

Best sushi outside of Tokyo! We eat here regularly, lunch or dinner and always get fab food. Make sure you reserve for dinner as its usually full in the evenings.

We go to this place a lot for lunch with friends or for business. The place looks like a real Japanese traditional place which is nice, but radio background was always blasting loudly. , too bad since the atmosphere of the restaurant doesn't fit with the noise. The service is okay, can be much better if they smile more instead... More

Dined here last night as part of a business night out. Very nice experience. We were a party of 8 and had a very interesting selection of Sushi, beef, chicken, duck and salmon. Delicious fresh food.

I love this restaurant! It has great Japanese food, my favorites are the ebi fried maki and the wafu steak. Green tea ice cream is also wonderful. But you really can't go wrong here. And the price/quality ratio is awesome. It is quite a small place and popular among the locals (which includes a rather large group of Japanese expats):... More

Amstelveen has a large Japanese community but no Japanese dine here, even though it is centrally located. Food, just about bearable considering people origined from a nation nearby preparing, however, please do not mistake in any way that this is how the Japanese serve their guests. You must bare in mind this is a Japanese "themed" restaurant run by people... More

First review ever here, and only because the experience was so bad that I couldn't not say anything. I've long believed that food should be the most important part of dining out, and that most reviewers are oversensitive (or entitled) when it comes to service, but in this case the service was so disappointing that it cast a pall over...
