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.

This was our first visit to a Japanese restaurant and certainly will not be our last. Right from the start of our evening we were greeted my very friendly staff and taken to our table. The food preparation was excellent with the chef explaining each course. The quality and taste of food was exceptional. A first class restaurant that we... More

I ate here last week for the 4th or 5th time, and somehow it seems to get better every time! The restaurant is always packed which makes for a really nice ambience in the room and because you are sat around your chef, you do share the table with others, but you never feel like you could be overheard. We... More

Having stayed in the Okura hotel before and eaten at their other fine restaurants, we ventured into Sazanka hoping for a similarly brilliant experience. We weren't disappointed. The food, the theatre, the ambience, the customer service by all members of staff was awesome! We will be back, and we will tell your story to our friends, thank you :)
