There are many places in Amsterdam to get sushi, but what are the absolute best sushi spots in Amsterdam in our opinion? We made a small selection to help you pick your next restaurant adventure.
The Yamazato restaurant in the Okura Hotel is definitely the place to be if you want to eat the very best sushi. As a matter of fact, Yamazato is the first traditional kaiseki restaurant outside of Japan that is awarded with a Michelin star. All dishes are prepared by the hands of manager Masanori Tomikawa and a team of skilled Japanese chefs. They will prepare your sushi in front of you and therefore prepare exactly what you want to taste at that moment. It really doesn’t get any better than this!

One of the chefs who worked at Yamazato now runs the MOMO kitchen. This restaurant is more of a fusion place, next to sushi they also prepare great South-American ceviches, dim sum and tacos. But don’t let that fool you, their Sushi still is absolute top notch. And if you love a good cocktail with your sushi MOMO is the place to go!
