“Delicious and a great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

I was travelling with my husband and parents and we went in on the Saturday night hoping for a table, the place was buzzing and fully booked - so we booked for the Sunday instead.

We all thought it was a brilliant experience and the quality of the food was fantastic - really tasty and plenty of it. We would highly recommend and whilst it is expensive we were there for a few hours and it really is an experience. If you think what you'd pay for theatre and a meal out then it doesn't seem too expensive then....and watching the chef at work was definitely entertaining. He was really friendly and very skilled.

“Beautiful restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

For our table of 12 people, we found that 10 teppanyaki sets of beef, lamb, fish, shrimp, & chicken was more than enough. We were given four kinds of dipping sauce. Service was very good. This was our most memorable meal during our 6 days' stay in Amsterdam.

“Great Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

I eat a lot of sushi and this was one of the freshest I have eaten. The hand made rolls were amazon and the maki rolls were great as well. Service was good and although expensive you get what you pay for

“Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Even from the beginning you can feel the warmth in the treatment. The ambient was not noisy, the music was low, which gave a great deal of tranquility.
The food was really superb, well balanced; some dishes were really awesome, one of the best my picky daughter even tried.
The personal was attentive, nice and skillful.
An absolutely must-go when returning to Amsterdam.
