Booked on the back of reviews on this site and had the most fantastic evening. The place itself is quite small and we were seated next to the kitchen. This was a great place to sit as we could see how hard the chefs worked!...More

Had roasted avocado, sushi set, sashimi set, grilled sardines, with edamame and plumb wine with ice. It was simply perfect, with excellent service and great value for money.

I love this restaurant! The service is very good and the atmosphere is nice. However, the really great thing is the food. Lovely nigiris and amazing eggblant nanban. I like everything here!! Also great place for drinks; nice japanese beer and cocktails.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
