The food is definitely top quality, the decor appealing, and the creme of Amsterdam is certainly there. If you are going for a business dinner, this certainly is a nice place to go. However, the food lacked a bit of creativity and exotic flavors that I expect for the price tag and the Michelin star....not half the quality or creativity... More

Best Japanese food experience I've had outside of Japan. Sushi was melt in mouth good...makes a mockery of most American sushi joints. Sushi chefs were friendly. Order omakase to have complete experience.

Superb service, wonderful Sommelier, fantastic food. Had this the following evening dining at Ciel Bleu, so it was up against very strong competition and did not disappoint in any way.

I really love sushi and I was very excited about trying my first Michelin Star Japanese restaurant, unfortunately this did not at all live up to my expectations. We arrived a little late and so there was only about 40 minutes of the kitchen still being open (you need to know that it does close pretty early). This would normally... More

We chose the tasting menu with accompanying sake's. The service we first class with very pleasant and well informed waitresses. If you are in Amsterdam this is worth the 15 minute taxi ride.

Simply the best Japanese food i've had in Amsterdam. Great place to go located right in the hotel itself. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and attentive. The food is simply fantastic. Well priced. I went here on a business lunch. will definitely be going back.

The food here is truly excellent - each morsel is so beautifully presented it looks like a work of art, and it tastes as good as it looks. The other thing I love about this place is the service - the waiters are not only extremely knowledgeable regarding both the food and the (extensive) sake list, they are extremely friendly... More

As part of a group of 4 we booked a table Friday evening. No-one had previously eaten here and were looking forward to eating at what is described as a very good sushi restaurant. We were all very disappointed with the quality of the food and felt it was very average/bland yet priced at what one would pay at top... More
