Good food, and cheap for an all you can eat sushi. Service seems a bit chaotic but works, but it's easy to forget what you ordered. Any thing ordered and not eaten gets charged on top of the meal. Great place for groups

We actually just stumbled in this restaurant. 'Twas raining in Amsterdam that time. Me and hubby were looking for a nice decent restaurant. From the outside it looks plain restaurant. The moment we enter I immediately felt the Japanese vibe in this restaurant. We were ushered immediately to our table and informed us about the menu. To be honest we... More

So we go into this place for dinner after reviewing it on trip advisor. It has an all you can eat menu. We arrived 45 mins before the last order so we really had to be quick with our selection. The service was crap they made you feel like they wanted you to stuff your face as quick as possible... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident, after doing a spot of shopping on Heilegeveg street (spelling!?). I always feel that you get ripped off if you eat on the main streets or in a pretty square, so we turned left at Scotch and Soda shop onto a side street and found this restaurant with outside seating just at the...

Everything is made freshly to order, the fish is great, and the service is reasonably quick and friendly (although it can take a little while during busy times). The food is really good, and for 22.80 (Superior AllYouCanEat), you really can't fault it.

It was very delicious sushi and spicy wacami salad. Very quick service. On our next visit we want to return to this cafe.

From the outside and the entrance it does not look so inviting, worn down and in need of a good spruce up. Once inside it does better but the smoking room near the entrance for me is a no-no, but no idea where they could otherwise have it. So I would give an average for decor. We used to come... More

I really like Tokyo Cafe. It's not the best Sushi restaurant in Amsterdam ( Yamazato ) but if you combine ambiance, quality, friendliness , taste and service this is one of my favorite places in Amsterdam. For dinner you can choose the AYCE Superior menu for 22.80 euro and the Deluxe for 26.80. The menu is extensive; handrolls, sashimi, maki... More

The restaurant has very good location in walking area of Amsterdam. When we arrived without reservation the place was almost full but the staff found a place for us. The sushi selection is great and the quality is good, for my taste the only upgrade could be made with rice preparation and soy sauce. You can order dinner menu and... More
