We went there with a group of 6 people and the had almost 8 dishes. The dish which amazed me was the wagyu beef roll with oyster inside, it was just great flavors exploding in the mouth and all melting together.

Typical teppanyaki setup with the large cooking stations and seating around them. Quite noisy restaurant, a bit awkward for a Michelin star awarded space. The menu is interesting and offers an elevated experience from similar restaurants but it comes with a price.More

The Teppan-chefs will prepare the most delicious fish, meat and vegetarian dishes on a hot iron griddle at your table: a la minute cooking with Japanese precision. The contemporary Japanese interior, inspired by the elements of stone, wood, water and fire, is an oasis of tranquillity. The teppanyaki griddles are large enough for seven to ten guests and are ideal for both business and celebratory dinners. Sazanka is open for dinner from 18:30 to 22:00 daily. Lunch can be prepared for a minimum group size of 10 people and must be booked in advance.
