Second time visiting this restaurant and again choose for the Ramen noodle set lunch menu. First I received a bowl of rice with sliced pork topped with seaweed and soy sauce...excellent taste! Then I received the Ramen with seafood and pork broth, including the famous egg. Again, the flavors are well balanced and the Ramen was nice and 'al dente'.... More

We are big fans of authentic Japanese cuisine and working for a Japanese company also helps. If you are not familiar with this style of cuisine or what to choose no worries, ordering via the menu is very simple but the choice is huge! Big problem is that EVERYTHING is absolutely fantastic and very authentic. Have been 3 times in... More

Sticks, cold beer, fish, fried chicken.....great service and the feeling of being in Japan! what else could you possibly need for a great night out. We really love this place and felt so excited when we arrived, it again had the feeling of stepping off a Tokyo street and into the Japanese gasto pub culture. It was very busy and... More

This is our go-to Friday date night restaurant. The food is delicious and is really authentic. Everything on the menu is fantastic but I highly recommend the white sesame ice cream!!

Best description for Hakata Spenachi restaurant is don't publish your critics and let it continue by it's on without letting those who understand so little about true japanese food invade the place. I have been there couple of times and so many of the leading chefs of Amsterdam eating there. And if this isn't a justify to go there, simply... More

Best yakitori I have ever had outside of Japan. In fact it could be better that what I had in Japan it was just too long ago. The unagi and pork belly were our favorites. Very reasonable priced and nicely located near the RAI and close to our hotel. Great selection of Sake and other foods as well.

The porkbelly ramen was the best I've eaten in Amsterdam. It is really close to the real authentic deal! Oh and don't get me started on their Yakatori. Simply; deliciouss. We were there with a group of 8 people and we were served like kings. Such a friendly staff, and every dish was well prepared. I can recommend this restaurant... More

An eleven hour flight is brought back to a twenty minute tram ride. Osaka is near. At Hakata Sempachi all that is needed to be there for beer, yakitori, takoyaki, chicken-nanban, is available. Together with ladies serving you the food with Japanese gestures and sounds. That they speak Dutch almost comes as a disappointment. Great atmosphere, great food, great beer.

Delicious, and not in the tourist trap. The skewers come in every type of meat / fish, and absolutely mouth watering. Run by family, simply delightful experience.
