The place is very nice, the food is delicious, the attention is also very nice. The only thing is the serving time, too slow for getting the food. Recommendation, be prepared to spend sometime having dinner and enjoying the atmosphere. Not recommended if you are in a rush.

Dear Gely M, thank you for your kind review. Our chefs at Hosokawa prepare the food according to a high level of standards, therefore the waiting time could be a little bit longer than expected.

My boyfriend and I made a reservation whilst we were at home in London. We fancied going somewhere special for Valentine's Day, Wow. We had an excellent experience at Hosokawa.

We walked by the restaurant on a sunday around 6pm and decided to go in because it looked really nice. We were lucky to get a table. The waitress was really knowledgeable and explained the different dishes to us. We chose several different kind of sushi and liked all of them a lot! I highly recommend this place.

Visited here February 2017 for Business dinner. We had Teppanyaki for our group and food was really delicious (chefs menu). For some reason the cook was really hassling a lot and seemed that he had just too much pressure. But the actual problem was serving. Wines came to the table wrong time, there were classes missing and waitresses forgot what... More

Hi Kari, Thank you for visiting Hosokawa Amsterdam and appreciate our food. I’m sorry to hear that our service was not up to par that night. Our teppanyaki table is usually reserved for 9 people with a maximum of 12. As an exception we accepted the reservation for 13 people. Due to your circumstances the final amount of guests was...

Pleasant place, but unfit for an early, mixed dining group. We were a party of 7, including two toddlers and our parents, both 80+. Aware of extra needs, we reserved and came early, at 6PM, bringing an extra baby chair. The spacy place was almost empty, but plenty of kitchen and serving staff. We liked to have miso starters for... More

I called last Friday around 6 to see if there is a table available. They said that they are fully booked. I asked if there is any place available on the sushi bar. They said that there is a possibility but they cannot guarantee. He said there are some people leaving, so around 8 there might be free places. I... More

Bought a nudeal coupon for a lunch set. I chose a karage (fried chicken) bento with gyoza and miso soup. Before going there I interacted with them on their Facebook page, they always responded promptly to my queries.

Convenient location, great atmosphere, friendly and attentive service, but, most importantly, really fresh, creative, delicious food! Sushi and sashimi is wonderful, and the grilled food looked and smelled fab too. Good value for money. We really enjoyed ourselves here and hope to be back soon!

A genuinely authentic Japanese Restaurant close to the centre of Amsterdam.... Miso soup starter followed by a great selection of Sashimi and Sushi before choosing from a varied range of mains including Japanese Seafood Tempura.... All washed down by a nice Viognier. The restaurant is busy and bright with a good attentive service...

The food is always good and has great atmosphere. It is good to reserve a table ahead since this restaurant books on the weekends. It is located right next to Leidsplein so close to the night life.
