Best sushi in Amsterdam hands down. It’s difficult to make a reservation so do it well in advance! I placed us on the waiting list and got a table nonetheless. The waiter was very funny! Loved the restaurant and definitely coming back.

First time at this place. The food was amazing - we shared a starter, then got the California sushi and the flamed salmon sushi. After that we shared the sliders with spice cheese and mushrooms. The cocktails- Ginza pink and the pornstar martini- both were...perfect!More

A lovely atmospheric yakitori-like restaurant serving Japanese food, somewhat modified (especially the sauces) for western tastes. There is a full sushi and sashimi menu (which I did not try), and a good range of vegetable, gyoza, tempura, fish and meat dishes. Plus an extensive range...of cocktails and a short wine list. Recommended.More

I’ve tried the Hotel California ones and my husband chose the King Ku Sliders. Everything was excellent. The buns from the 2 small burgers tasted delicious and the meat as well. What can i say about the sushi?! We loved it! Definitely coming back!
