Inside Okura hotel and they have very nice traditional ambiance. Top quality traditional Japanese food. Sushi, sashimi, tempura etc. Service is perfect. Lovely Japanese garden view. Good sake and wine choices. Expensive but it worth.

I met a Dutch friend for dinner here and was expecting high quality sushi. Good, but nothing special since it is adjacent to the hotel. Instead, the visit was a delightful trip to Japan. The wait staff wear kimonos (mofuku?) and explain each dish to you and the traditional way the Japanese enjoy it. I ordered one of the prix... More

The fish is so extremely fresh... It's a different experience if you talk about sushi, the quality is amazing! Take the Toro sushi, it's like wagyu beef but then the tuna version. Once you try this you will no longer enjoy any all-you-can-eat sushi place (those you will put under fast food restaurants). We took a wide selection of sashimi... More

It was cold in both temperature and design. Not one dish exceeded average taste. Japanese waitress as always very kind, but difficult to understand her English.

We used to go there repeatadely a year ago (2014 to end of 2015). It is very traditional and excellent Japanese food. We stayed in Japan a few years and this quality is not often found outside of Japan. The specialty is luxurious bento boxes, with fresh products of the season. Highly recommended.

We went here for our anniversary as sushi lovers. The place is great, everything Japanese. The woman serving us was Japanese and her English wasn't well. However we totally loved her for being so polite and kind. The overall food wasn't the best (for us). We took the menu in stead of just sushi, but we shouldn't have. A lot... More

It's one of those days.. you cannot decide where to eat.. Yamazato is always a good choice. The fresh sashimi will melt on your tongue. We had a nice view on the Japanese styled garden.

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
