To get there use the number 14 tram. The sushi is more expensive than other places but inline with prices for restaurants in Amsterdam. The quality is very good and the service was as well. And when I posted this review in June 2014 they even accepted American Express credit cards.

very authentic Japanese with a perfect quality - price relation, it is frequented by many Japanese expats living in Amsterdam. Great place!

We were a group of 8 and therefore above the average size but time between ordering and starting our meal was painfull.

By far the best sushi I've had in Amsterdam. We went there for dinner on a Wednesday evening and it was great. The service was really nice (non dutch service, only Japanese), good manners, and very friendly. The food was good, very fresh and tasty (there are some cookers standing behind the bar preparing some dishes, so everybody can see... More

Akitsu serves super fresh sushi, expertly prepared. It's a joy to eat there, especially if you can get to one of the two low tables and sit on the mat - our favourite is the spicy tuna roll - but the tuna and salmon they select for the sashimi is excellent. Try the salad - lovely dressing. Compared to some... More

Akitsu is one of the best restaurants I have been to in Amsterdam in terms of food quality, Japanese or otherwise. It was as delicious as Yamazato, although of course not as refined and a fraction of the price. The fish is really fresh and tasty, the sushi delicious, and the other warm and cold Japanese dishes on the menu... More

Akitsu is one of my favourite restaurants in Amsterdam. And definitely the best Japanese restaurant (shared 1st place with Yamazato). The fish is really really fresh. They have fatty tuna. And also have grilled dishes. I always let the chef create a menu for me and my companions. Also great place for business dinners.
