Basic place, but good Sushi and nice owner

We went out to that place for having dinner. The restaurant itself is quite basic and not really cosy. But the Sushi is very fresh and delicious. The owner - an old lady - is not the fastest at all, but she is really lovely and caring. We ordered a menu, which contains soup, salad and a wide range... read more

The city is filed with mediocre sushi places. But this authentic Japanese restaurant stands out. We had sushi, chirashi and sashimi. All was very good quality and very fresh. Probably the best sushi place in its price range.

Small, simple restaurant with only a few tables and a nice view on the canals. Lovely service and very good sushi quality. Perfect place!

Small, hidden, not easy to spot. Inside there are a few tables, and a view to the canal. A very affable old japanese lady will take your order, while her husband is in charge of the kitchen. Traditional japanese menu, Saporo beer, and a cozy ambient. Must go.

Found this gem wandering the streets. The service and hospitality was fantastic well above Dutch standards (because they are Japanese). Very traditional Japanese food, our son's chicken teriyaki was very good but the sushi as average - at least they didn't put mayonnaise in the rolls. We would go back but just for the atmosphere and to talk with the... More

Had the sashimi meal (with soup and salad), it was extremely fresh and delicious. Definitely the best Japanese I have had in Amsterdam, and some of the best anywhere. Near perfect service from a lovely old Japanese woman who barely spoke English (not a problem, the menu has pictures and she does well enough). Scenic view of the canal, funny... More

Not only is this place small and cozy, it's one of those restaurants you would never even find, let alone dare to go into if someone did not take you there. But once you do, you go back for sure! At least I tend to go there every time in Amsterdam. A true hidden diamond. The place is veeery small,... More

Do no get confused by simple look of the place: it offers one of the best example of japanese cuisine in the city, It is not cheap but it has a great choice of plates, if not sure chose a mix plate to taste a little bit of everything. Excellent.
