    Favourite restaurant in Amsterdam hands down. Even if you don’t eat fish there are so many delicious dishes. It was my Birthday and Yasmine (who truly gave us the most incredible service) surprised me with a little dessert at the end. She attended to our every need, was always there refilling or asking if we needed a new drink, and on top of that she was so friendly. I’ve always had good service at this restaurant but Yasmine was really amazing! Recommend the Beef Tataki and the Corn Tempura especially, and the cocktails are also really good. Could not fault it!

    After confirming reservations I checked if our table would be available sooner then bespoken. Supposedly inside would be fully booked and not possible to arrive earlier. Once there 2/3 of the restaurant appeared empty and there was a shortage on staff (as told by the hostess). Outside was nicer at this point in this weather. Most disturbing was the manager that only spoke with some regular guests (who had some drinks or small bites) not to any other guest and paid no attention/ nor welcoming. Food was really good but a bit overpriced.

    Meal was good and service started out good. Waiter dumped my drink in my lap by accident and cleaned it up right away but could have taken my drink off the bill. He offered to bring another drink but I declined as I didn’t want another one.

    Best night to celebrate something - recommend sitting at the bar for more interaction with the staff and allows to look around the restaurant. Food was amazing, nice (slightly chilled) pinot noir to go with it and impeccable service that elevate your experience and night to another level. Must try!

    The service was disappointing- we were not served or attended after taking a seat. Table was all dirty. The wind blew away our food and we got no replacement. After moving indoors, the staff again forgot about us and didn’t serve any food for nearly an hour.

    Service quality was one of the worst I have ever seen in my life. We were 3 girls and wanted to order slowly bu not having everything at the same time. However waiteress were extremely rude and arrogant by saying ‘I dont think this will be enough’ , ‘dont you really want to order more’ , ‘if you decide main course later you will have to wait long time’ and many similar untolarable attitudes. Even we had 3*6 sushi plates, 2 starters, 1 main course, couple coctails she acted like we’re there just to sit without having anything. Even I enjoyed the food very much, I will never ever come again to and inform all my friends about this unacceptable rudeness norms there.

    This place has absolutely nothing to do with Japanese food. It is serving the tiniest portions that are completely overpriced, while ingredients are ruined by ridiculous amounts of sauce and condiments.

    Food is overpriced for what you get. Lot of staff, but not attentive if you want to order. So not only us but only the tables next to us had to wait quite some time to order. For these prices I’m expecting very good and well prepared dishes, that wasn’t the case unfortunately

    Food was amazing but portion size was small. Paying 20 euro for a 6 piece Maki roll or 24 Euro for 6 pieces of sashimi. Add it up and if those numbers work for you - then you will love it.

    Staff were friendly and helpful even though we were late. Food was incredible and the wine choice excellent. The mochi and fruits dessert was wonderful. Only slight criticism is the music was loud and made talking across the table with my partner difficult.

    Comparing for the value of the money I felt like the place is overrated. The food is OK but nothing special. We like the vegetables we ordered a lot but they are very limited. Service is slow. Hard to get the attention of the staff to order something..

    Had a very nice dinner with a friend yesterday. The food was great! Unfortunately it was a bit difficult at times to get in contact with a waiter. I ordered a coffee and they forgot about it. Also they forgot one dish we ordered. Overall we had a great experience. We can recommend to go there.
