We had a family dinner during our long weekend in Amsterdam. Very kind welcome for us and our two young children (5 years and 5 month old). The cook was very professional and skilled. Food and preparation outstanding, and great service. We warmly recommend!

This was our first experience with a teppanyaki restaurant, and chosen because of its reputation and the possibility to watch a "food artist" in action. We chose the classic menu with wine pairings. The dishes were beautifully prepared, simple and tasteful, and the wine pairings...More

As always, perfect from A to Z. As a special thing on the Seasonal menu was the "plastic" bag with crab/crayfish. We miss the Lady sommelier, best wishes for her recovery. The sommelier that was in charge seems to have been well trained. Perfect!More

A classic Tepanyaki with some innovation. Quality is awesome and the professionals are outstanding we choose the classic menu and it is enough! Well balanced and with the chance to taste everything. Not cheap but well deserve a visit.

Absolutely the best restaurant I’ve ever been to. I have enjoyed over 30+ Michelin Star restaurants around the world and this is the best. Our server Linda was incredibly attentive and the chef Chisa was outstanding. Please try if you ever have the opportunity.

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.
