Description: 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 fantastic experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

This restaurant offers not only great food, wine and service, but at an overall fantastic experience. You sit around the grill, and the chef prepare the food as you watch. The service from the first second you arrive is excellent, and it is very entertaining watching the chefs cook the food in their very special way. And the food tastes very, very good! New flavors and new ways to prepare the excellent meat and fish makes a truly special meal. If you add the wine package to complement the food, you will also get the story of the wine and how it suits the dish. Very entertaining. Coming from Norway this is not pricy, absolutely value for money!

“One of my favourite restaurants by far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We went for dinner here last year and had an amazing experience, the food was absolutely out of this world. Being able to Watch how your food is cooked and prepared just adds the whole dining experience. I just hope I find an equally good Japanese restaurant along my travels.

“Wow,Wow,Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I can honestly say this was one up there as one of my favorite dining experiences. The idea itself is brilliant, the service superb and the food here is out of this world. Whilst it may be a little bit expensive in some peoples eyes you pay for what you get and what you get here is damn good.

“Wagu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

If you like Wagu beef this is the place. Nice service and capable chefs. A bit pricy but to be expected when you are eating quality ingredients like duck breast, wagu steak, and goose liver. Order a nice bottle of Sake and dream that you are in Tokyo.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

I had been to Sazanka in Tokyo a few years ago and had always wanted to take my family there so I was thrilled to find that there was one in Amsterdam. Its a very different dining experience from eating in a regular restaurant and I was a little concerned that my teenage children might not enjoy it but I am glad to say that they loved it. The service and food were excellent - we all had the Wagyu classic menu and the beef just melted in your mouth. It is quite expensive (about 150 euros per head with drinks) but we thought that it was worth it.
