    All the dishes were delicious. Very friendly staff. A bit pricy but well worth. Child friendly. Great sushi. CrUnchy hotate, creamy dragon rolls, crispy tuna nigiri all very good.

    Highly recommended! I must say that Nanbu serves the best Japanese food I've ever had! Sushi specials are amazing, especially the salmon cracker nigiri and the cali shrimp sushi! We also tried some Asian variations, such as crispy duck rolls and hot chicken rolls. The staff there are very welcoming and always ready to help. Although it's my first time here, I will definitely visit again!

    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.

    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.

About the restaurant

In this Japanese restaurant you can enjoy good sushi. Fish with a lot of flavor. Because Japanese cuisine is so extensive, the menu offers a variety of small snacks. Little bites that you can share with your companions. A little bit of everything is exactly the charm of Asian cuisine. Of course you can also order a piece of fish or meat prepared on the baking tray: fresh and tasteful until the last bite!
