I heard this restaurant got a Michelin star so we decided to dine there. The place is very pleasant and nice. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. The chef knew some English but as with many Japanese was difficult to understand sometimes. We took a 5 course meal for 95 Euro upgraded with 45 extra euro for one dish... More

We've eaten at Sazanka 5 or 6 times and it never disappoints- it's truly top notch in every respect! It's not just dinner but an experience. The food is authentic Japanese Tappanyaki with a little European flair. The set menus offer a wide variety of flavors and the staff will graciously accommodate allergies and wishes. The dessert we had on... More

The service was great and the experience of having your food prepared in front of you was great! We chose the seasonal menu for €115 and paid an extra €60 for the addition of wagyu. It was definitely not worth the money paid. The most disappointing was the dessert. It was green tea ice cream with a chick pea sauce,... More

This is more than a meal it is an experience and should be savoured in every way, have experienced tepanyaki in many countries, this was up there with the very best, would recommend not to look at the cost, just order what you fancy and apply for the mortgage later.

Description
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.

Neighbourhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
