Description: On Hotel Okura Amsterdam's ground floor, you will find the Okura's Teppanyaki Restaurant Sazanka. Teppanyaki literally means 'to grill on a hot plate', which is traditionally the oldest way of preparing food in Japan. This kind of dining is very popular in its native country, in part because the chef prepares the most delicious dishes right before the guests' eyes. Various fishes and meats, including the very exclusive Wagyu beef, are prepared a la minute with Eastern precision. The Teppanyaki Restaurant Sazanka's interior features a contemporary Japanese style, the design of which is based on the elements of stone, wood, water and fire. The eleven teppanyaki hot plates will seat seven to ten guests each and are perfect for both business and festive occasions. It is also possible to reserve a private room with two hot plates, offering plenty of space for a maximum of 18 guests.

We enjoyed a most entertaining and tasty meal and the staff couldn't have been more hospitable and helpful even though we arrived very late (due to a flight delay).

Incredible tastes. Fantastic theatre. Staff were so attentive. Not cheap but well worth it. Give it a try, you won't be dissapointed.

Went to Sazanka few times already. Enjoyed it every time. Where to start...? Service is excellent. Food is unique, fresh and very tasty. I was fascinating from the chef, it was more than just cocking food, it is a well synchronize dinner where the chef prepare the food in a very colorful way, and serve the plates in a very... More

This was just an amazing dining experience. The food was amazing - I have seafood allergy and the chef was willing to work with me to an amazing result. The beef and pork courses were my favorite. Some of the best Waygu I have ever had. I was recently in Tokyo and I can honestly, say this rivaled anything I... More

The corses were innovative and sometimes a... More

Eating here was a rare treat. We had the Sazanka Tasting Menu and watched in amazement as our chef named Chisa prepared each dish with precision and grace. This is very serious cooking. Highlight was the Wagyu Beef. Everything was delicious and wonderfully presented. Service was very attentive and friendly. Great wines by the glass.

A tremendous piece of theatre as well as a fantastic meal. The teppan chef was so precise and skilful with his preparation and presentation, that the cooking was sure to be just perfect. The subtle recommendations of what seasonings accompanied each course were gratefully received, and nothing was placed before us unless the presentation and arrangement was exactly right. The...

I often stay at the Okura hotel, which is great. Sazanka is a restaurant where you need to take the time. Many dishes come by from the plate. For everyone there are the most outstanding dishes, for everyone there's something you don't like. Having said that, this is a truly remarkable experience starting at the hotel lobby. Great service, great... More

Wasn't the best, i do generally make a complaint if food is cold or undercooked but when i do its rectified with a smile - not on this occasion. I wasn't a fan of Sazanka and i don't think i will be returning. Sorry

This is an amazing experience. It is about high quality food (both meat and fish) and extraordinary visual experience. The restaurant is high price, 100 euro pp, but it fully deserves that. We share our table with two couples which made our dinner even more interesting.
