I've been here several times over the past years and the service always has been excellent. The sushi is delicious, made freshly in sight. The portion sizes have slightly decreased over the years, but the amount of rounds still fills us up every time. The red and black interior makes it romantic, even though it's almost always hectic and fully... More

I do notice that the quality of shabu shabu differs across different shops. The one in Amsterdam is my favorite. Since it's not too big, it seems that the service is also better. The customers get more individual attention and the food seems to be prepared more carefully.

Asian restaurant (Japanese and Chinese) with "all you can eat" menu. In 2 hours you can order what you want, 5 dishes at a time, for 25 Euro. With dish is considered the single piece of sushi or three pieces of maki or a rice dish. The rice of maki and nigiri was overcooked, the soba was good. We were... More

First impressions aren't always right as we were not allowed to join the rest of the guests we could see waiting for us at our table until we had stood at the "please wait to be seated" sign and they had checked the list for the reservation. The fact that we could see the rest of our party "they are... More

We wanted to eat sushi at around 5, for 2 people. We called to make a reservation and the lady said: we are working with rounds for dinner. From 5-8 or 8-11. So i made a reservation for the 8-11 round. We arrived a few minutes to 8. The not-so-friendly waitress said: there is no table at the moment, because... More

I have been here half a dozen times so far. Good sushi, quick service. The restaurant tends to be very busy and loud (but I suppose that is to be expected as it is in centre of Amsterdam) There isn't a huge selection of sushi - but enough to please me and keep me coming back for more. Its nice... More

The sushi is decent, the service friendly and prompt. We are regulars there, and the kids love it. The on,y problem is that they don't carry Heineken!!

Good value for a restaurant where you pay one rate for all you can eat. The different dishes were fun to try and I loved the pickles. My wife had two seaweed salads. But the sushi and sashimi were adequate, not great... don't expect great at this kind of restaurant. Good experience. The staff are very efficient but look a... More
