We are Officially Accredited Authentic Japanese Restaurant

Japanese Government Approval


For over 25 years we have been cultivating an authentic Japanese dining experience known as teppanyaki. With the use of the carefully selected ingredients, our chefs open up the world of a Japanese cooking ritual. Teppanyaki (‘teppan’ – iron plate, ‘yaki’ – grilled) concept stands on three main pillars: exceptionally fresh ingredients, proper equipment, and the chef mastery…



Our Modern Japanese Cuisine is a delightful exemplification of elevating the sense of authentic Japanese cuisine to the new levels. Being faithful to our heritage we use new cooking techniques to create unique sensual experiences. Our rejuvenated vision of the Japanese tradition will help you discover your favorite flavors once again…


To accommodate the Japanese way of hospitality – omotenashi (Omotenashi is a rich, beautiful aspect of Japanese culture. Omotenashi is all about grace and courtesy towards others, the literal translation is to entertain guests wholeheartedly) we strive to provide the highest quality of service. Our international service team that is being led by Tim and Thuy, who both have years of experience in the hospitality will make sure that your experience in our restaurant will be catered towards your wishes.



At Hosokawa Restaurant we work only with the highest quality of ingredients to create the greatest dishes, but we also strive to work only with the best. The kitchen brigade is based on experience and passion for the Japanese cuisine. Every chef starts at the bottom and works his way up to excel in the Japanese cuisine.



Chef Hosokawa started his dream over 45 years ago as a Masterchef in Yamazato/Sazanka Okura Hotel, one of Europe’s most famous Japanese restaurants. In 1992 Chef Hosokawa decided to open his own restaurant in the center of Amsterdam. Since then he has earned his stripes and became a master in his craft. With experience, passion, and technique, we bring you a taste of traditional Japan with our teppanyaki, modern Japanese cuisine, and sushi.
