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.

I have been eating at Yamazato for years and totally forgot to give it a review. The staff are amazing at this place and you will be hard pressed to find anything like it on earth. The level of pride and profession taken in the preparation of the food is beyond belief and the food is out of this world... More

I have come here many times through out the years and the quality of food is outstanding. They recently refurbished and seem to be very happy with the result. Although the restaurant really needed an upgrade i am not happy with result. Chairs are uncomfortable and there are still too many tables without a good view. I know Japanese cuisine... More
