Food good, but lacks creativity and the WOW thing!

Went there for dinner early February in a group of six for dinner- ordered the kaiseki - whilst the food is fresh and service (run by Japanese) cannot be faulted - the overall combination of ambience and gastronomy explains why it is just sitting at One Michelin star and that's about it. Lacking... read more

I enjoyed the lunch set here. It's only 500 bahts( about 14$). The Quality of food was superb. The service is also good. You can enjoy the good view of Bangkok with the expressway because it's on 24th floor!!

This is my third visit to Yamazato, and I've heaped praise on it in the past, so it's with reluctance that I report that, this time, though good, did not approach the previous standard. I'm judging most critically, but whereas the previous meals had no ingredient or garnish that was not superb in itself, this meal did. In every case,... More

I may not be the best person to review this restaurant as clearly the food cooked here was not for me. Let me start by saying I love Sushi and I have been known to enjoy Hibachi as well. I was excited to try this restaurant with my son and coworker. The atmosphere is simple and pleasant but in no... More

Perfection in service, cooking and presentation. Best Japanese restaurant in town without a doubt. The audience is also of a higher class compared tot the other grill-restaurant next to it.

Probably had to high expectations - was not disappointed at all! The set lunch menu is at 50 euros and was great. Keeps a nice balance between the humble Japanese cousine and the standards of the Michelin guide.

On the ground floor of the Okura Hotel, you are welcomed in via the zen-styled entrance to the restaurant . Which has been recently renovated . There are raised solid wood partitions throughout which ensure a degree of visual privacy. The food is excellent , and the servings akin to works of art, accompanied by brief descriptions of each dish.... More

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.
