The Teppan-chefs will prepare the most delicious fish, meat and vegetarian dishes on a hot iron griddle at your table: a la minute cooking with Japanese precision. The contemporary Japanese interior, inspired by the elements of stone, wood, water and fire, is an oasis of tranquillity. The teppanyaki griddles are large enough for seven to ten guests and are ideal for both business and celebratory dinners. Sazanka is open for dinner from 18:30 to 22:00 daily. Lunch can be prepared for a minimum group size of 10 people and must be booked in advance.

Good Teppanyaki in Okura Hotel

Service and ingredients of the highest quality and well prepared, also great restaurant choice in the hotel - more like a resort less like a city hotel

We got a reservation really hard and we enjoyed it but don't expect something spectacular. The cook was decent but I did not see any show like some of of the chefs are doing.

Ingredients were good, the preparation and presentation was a little westernized, but the waygu beef was the real thing, and the seafood was fresh. Performance of the chefs was a little underwhelming, little more drama would have been good.price was quite high, but not unreasonably so. Will go back.

The food was great and I was amazed at how fast the service was. Even though the restaurant was full it didn't take more than 10-15 minutes before we had everything we ordered. Sure it's a little pricey but it was totaly worth it

I will admit, hopes were high as the restaurant has just received a Michelin star, and in no way did it disappoint. My partner and I are definitely fans of Teppanyaki cooking, so were more than intrigued when we came across this whilst researching where to eat. We both opted for the seasonal menu at €110, for the sake of... More

This is a pretty good restaurant I have been. Typical japanese food. But the price is little bit high for me:( so if you are a student,you want pay less, this is not the best choice. But you are not a student, this will be a nice restaurant.

Truly an amazing experience service was excellent the chef handled multiple menus in a relaxed fashion. The wild duck was exceptional on the seasonal menu. Prices are high 90-120 euros from the menus but very generous. Oysters are roasted in the grill. Fish cooked in a salt crust Kobe beef rolled around greens and seared. All before the main course...
