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.

I decided to splurge on a recent trip to Amsterdam. This restaurant came highly recommended via tripadvisor and by our hotel concierge who said it was rated one of the top restaurants in the world! In for a penny, in for a pound as they say! I went for the gusto and had the seasonal menu which was divine. Moreover,... More

Next we had the best and freshest sea bream cooked within a salt and egg white mixture which hardened and essentially baked the fish... More

We were looking for a good restaurant to celebrate our anniversary and hands down, we both agreed to try out Teppanyaki Restaurant Sazanka. Mind you, we got it's "worth trying" from words of mouth! I have to say that the interior is not the most "romantic" but decent enough to have a conversation without the uneasy feeling that it's overcrowded.... More
