Went a couple of times for a family dinner. The place is very nice and offers a good selection of Japanese meals. Staff is nice, friendly and helpful. The place is expensive, but worth it. I have not been to Japan, so can not compare with restaurants in the country, but the place was recommended by a Japanese friend, who... More

When you enter the restaurant one can not help but think this is not Japanese because of the way the tables were dressed and the lay-out. The waitresses were in tradittional Japanse clothing. I ordered one of the many menus on offer and although the food was ok I was a little bit disappointed with the flavors. When you eat... More

The Teppanyaki Restaurant Sazanka is a must when you are in the Netherlands. We decided to eat there after having heard so much good about this restaurant. When we came to the restaurant the female staff had these beautiful japanese kimonos and the staff talked japanese and not very good english but that was just the charm of the restaurant!... More

I went to this restaurant with my wife (we are Japanese) in December 2014. I don't usually write reviews but I had to write one for this place because people should not be mistaken for thinking that this place serves good quality Japanese food. I am not saying that this place is bad. I'm saying that it is just your... More

There are many sushi bars but few as good as this one. The fish is incredibly fresh and the overall presentation is excellent. They also have some other really good dishes for non sushi eaters like chicken and beef dishes which we also tried and loved. The interior is done in a very traditional Japanese style with all the servers... More

Very disappointing. Many courses, including basically two miso soups that taste like it came from a package. The beef was not wagyu, and prepared like any Dutch "biefstuk", and not of high quality. The sashimi, especially the tuna, did not taste particularly fresh. We also had two potato dishes which were basically just fried potatoes and not very Japanese at... More

This was the first time we had attended this type of restaurant and what a treat. A memorable meal that we will never forget, a real treat if you are a foodie

I am a regular guest at the Okura and normally visit the Yamasato restaurant, probably 4 to 5 times per year. Usually I take the monthly special Keizeki menu. My most recent visit was on Monday. I really like this restaurant - the food is excellent, - the dinner of the month always is a superb combination of top class... More

Between shopping and evening concert we went here for lunch and chose the set seasonal menu. What a treat! The successive dishes were a delight in presentation and taste. Around 13:00h the restaurant was fairly full and remained very agreeable: no mobile telephones allowed; ample and attentive staff. A place to return to!

Came in here for lunch on last day of our minimoon after getting married. What can I say, it is an experience in itself let alone the food. We had the very reasonable set menu and a nice bottle of wine that was about 40 euros (they have an extensive list as you can imagine). The staff were exceptionally friendly,... More
