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.

A very disappointing evening! The food was not so good and so elaborated to justify such a slow service.(we spent almost 4 hours in the restaurant!!!! ). how can a starred restaurant keep the clients waiting to eat? This is inadmissible! More, after a few drinks some people were acting like they were eating in a pub (they were singing... More

An elegant setting at the Okura hotel, with good, attentive service. The Tepanyaki show is nice and entertaining as always, but the food is pretty bland and unimaginative. Maybe they are trying to cater to the taste of the masses, maybe not.. But this does not compare with authentic Tepanyaki from a cuisine standpoint. Also, it is very pricey for... More

This must be one of the best restaurant's I've been to. If you can get past the price then you're going to have a great time. Perfect service, incredibly fresh food, full of flavour. The best teppanyaki experience around.

There was anything to complain. Great food, excellent chef and good wine. Everything was fresh and made in front of us and that waguy beef, it melted in our mouths. Okey, maybe this is a little bit expensive, but worth of every cent.

Went there for an anniversary dinner and had a really nice time. After eating at several teppenyaki restaurants, I must say I enjoyed the chefs do some serious cooking sans the drama...while remaining cheerful and pleasant. The food was extremely fresh, the flavors were distinct and each dish was done to perfection. My favorite was the smoked duck with the... More

We stayed in the hotel here for a weekend away and we decided to dine here one night and what a good decision. We chose the tasting menu for a selection of house dishes (which I certainly recommend if it is your first visit). Overall it is a wonderful dining experience in an engaging atmosphere with both the chef and... More

Had a great meal and a wonderful evening here. This is not your typical Benihana experience. This is a real restaurant experience. I enjoy catching shrimp just as well as the next trained seal, but if you are looking for onion volcanos and shrimp tails in the chef's pocket you might be disappointed. On the other hand you will get... More

For a special family occasion, Sazanka is ideal. Top food in a relaxed athmosphere, and perfect to have private and personal conversations. The attention of the staff is great, making your evening, in combination with the food and selected sake and wines. In comparison to other Japanese restaurants, and i have eaten in a lot of them, absolutely the most... More
