Best Fish Quality In Europe

From my experience visiting many famous sushi restaurants around the world, the quality of the fish here could be one of the best in Europe and even better than some sushi bars In Japan. The reason why I didn't gave this restaurant a 5 star rating is because there is too much rice in the sushi... read more

This was truly one of the best Japanese meals I have ever had. The service was attentive, yet not overbearing. The suggestions were excellent and the food was at times, mind-blowing. Have the following: Toro sashimi, seaweed salad, soft shell crab maki, lobster tempura, Kobe Sukiyaki, black cod - you will not be disappointed!

An amazing experience. Had the vegetarian menu with additional daikon maki and avocado handroll. The food was amazing and if you are looking for an exceptional Japanese experience it is a must visit place. Every ingredient is well thought of and balanced. There is nothing to be added.

Was skeptical a bit, why would a person eat Japanese meals while in Amsterdam? But, due to lack of variety in dutch cuisine (sorry dutch), I opted to lunch at this place, and it was not disappointing at all. For around 42 euro, you will dine in at a one star michelin restaurant, and get some of the best Japanese... More

Great service, the best food ever, super thoughtful personel. The fish is simply amazing, the soups have an amazing texture and flavour, everything is thought to detail. All the personel was super nice, it was my birthday and they all gather around to wish me a happy anniversary and blow the candle. It was the second time and I can't... More

This is definitely the best sushi place in Amsterdam, or even in the Netherlands. High quality fresh fish, lots of choice. Recommend sitting at the bar, which means you can watch the chef at work - which is an art by itself. You do have to reserve, because it's always busy! And bring a credit-card, cause it ain't cheap!

I arranged this meal online in anticipation for our stay in Amsterdam. I had mentioned on the form it was for my partners 30th but not asked for anything other than a nice table. After what was a beautiful meal with brilliant service the manager & waitress brought my partner a pudding with candle and "happy birthday" biscuit and sang... More

Enjoyed authentic Japanese experience with some of the best service I ever got at a restaurant. I am not a Sushi liking person but still managed to like it. My wife and friends all bragged about how good the Sushi was for several days.

Second visit, will definitely return. Had the shakado box first time and was tempted by the seasonal lunch this time, which proved an excellent choice. The fish is so fresh, has taken my appreciation of Japanese food to new levels. Took photos of lunch, which is not usual for me! Gardens are also beautiful.

Staying in De Pijp

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
