I already knew that I wanted to dine here before I even arrived in Amsterdam, and had a nightmare finding this place. Me and my husband probably walked past the restaurant twice without even realising. The fact that it was raining probably didn't help, but there isn't anywhere written Tokyo Cafe until you get to the front door and it's written in a piece of A4 paper stuck on the glass of the door. For those of you who would like to try this place out, the restaurant is in Spuid, just next to the Waterstone's book store, and opposite the Esprit Cafe attached to the Esprit clothes shop.
We arrive at 6:30 pm without a booking and was immediatelly sat down and told that we have an hour to order whatever we want from the 62 items on the menu, and up to 8pm to finish and leave. It's a set price of 20.80 euros per head, and an extra 5 euros if you want unlimited sashimi included in your selection. Thought the sushi and sashimi were of good quality for the price. The fried prawns were lovely too. I thought it was thoughtfull to include a scoop of ice-cream (vanilla or green tea flavours) as part of the set price. Also, quite like the idea of ordering (just like Hi Sushi in London Soho) rather than picking from a conveyor belt,as you never know how long they've been there.
