A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Dit Japans restaurant tegenover de RAI is nog maar net open en nu al favoriet van velen. Dat heeft waarschijnlijk iets te maken met de persoonlijke benadering van eigenaren Ho en Morning Lam. Het echtpaar staat zelf in de zaak en vindt niets heerlijker dan hun gasten het naar de zin te maken. En ik vermoed dat de fotogenieke gerechten die uit de keuken komen ook zeker een handje helpen. Ho heeft jarenlang bij The Red Sun gewerkt en nadat zij dicht gingen opende hij zijn eigen zaak. Dus als je fan was van The Red Sun zou je je hier zeker op je gemak voelen. De kaart staat vol met experimentele sushigerechten en andere Aziatische lekkernijen. ‘Ik haal mijn inspiratie uit het buitenland. Steden als Londen en Hong Kong.’ Neem er een bijpassend glas wijn bij, ga achterover zitten en geniet van je Asian meal. Oh Nanbu heeft ook een terras, dus op mooie zomerse dagen kun je lekker buiten genieten van hun fijne gerechten.

    The quality of the sushi was really disappointing for a relatively high priced restaurant. It was also a mid mash of Asian food without any specific focus. Service and ambience was good though.

    Most amazing sushi I’ve had in the Netherlands so far!! Everyone should try it at least once and the service was first class. Atmosphere special and romantic, just go and enjoy!!!

    Nice place and excellent food. Although it is pricy we come back because of the good taste. The water is only from bottles and not the fine tap water from Amsterdam, which is a pity and not necessary. Best sushi is the Crispy Hot Tuna Roll.

    Fantastic restaurant, amazing food (the scallop nigiri, sashimi and gyozas were delicious), great setting and lovely staff. Excellent wine list. Will be back for sure!

    Food was very good like the last time we were here, albeit on the pricey side. However what was very disappointing was the service! For such a small place and so many staff it was surprisingly poor. Two dishes were forgotten (she compensated by offering a round of drinks on the house, but one drink was forgotten and one was the wrong drink, but I didn't bother trying to remind/or correct - for reasons explained later.) We had to practically beg to order. Some of the wait service could not communicate in either English or Dutch so it was impossible to correct things. At the delivery of the grand dessert, she said someone would come to explain what it was; no one came. But we ate it anyway, of course. ;-) I didn't even bother waiting for them to bring the pin-machine to pay so I went up to the counter myself to get it over with efficiently. For this much money, I expect better service. We won't be coming back.

    We had an amazing time at Nanbu. Delicious food with lots of flavour. For example : crazy salmon roll, halibut truffle nigiri and my favorite steamed scallops. The service was great and great atmosphere. I would definitely come back.

    We ate sushi, it was good but certainly not worth the price. You can get similar quality of sushi for a lower price in Amsterdam.

About the restaurant

In dit Japanse restaurant kun je heerlijk sushi eten. Vis waarbij de smaak op en top tot zijn recht komt. Omdat de Japanse keuken zo uitgebreid is, staan er op het menu allerlei kleine hapjes. Smal bites die je kunt delen met je tafelgenoten. Van alles een beetje is precies de charme van de Aziatische keuken. Uiteraard kun je ook een stuk vis of vlees op de bakplaat laten klaarmaken: lekker vers en smaakvol tot het laatste hapje!
