Yamazato at the Hotel Okura Amsterdam holds a Michelin star.
“To be recognised in the new Michelin Guide is a great honour,” says Edward E Snoeks, the hotel’s general manager. “Yamazato also has a well-deserved international reputation for the integrity of its ingredients and its flavours. This recognition is an affirmation of the commitment of Chef Shigeru Hagiwara and his team to delivering cuisine of a consistently high quality. You can be sure that he and his colleagues will be working towards earning a Michelin star in the coming year.”
Located on the 24th floor, Yamazato offers authentic Japanese cuisine amid surroundings filled with rich detail, from a ceiling that mimics the intricate folds of crisp origami to the clever use of warm wood finishes.
Waitresses wear traditional kimonos and every classic dish is presented in rustic earthenware.
The menu choices are extensive and include traditional Kaiseki Ryori set dishes for dinner.
Kaiseki cuisine dates back to the Japanese Imperial Court in the ninth century and has evolved into one of the world’s most popular forms of dining.
There is also outstanding teppanyaki, sushi and sashimi dishes, as well as an extensive alacarte menu. Choices evolve with the seasons and availability.
Yamazato earned a spot in BK Magazine’s Top Tables Bangkok 2017 list and is a regular in the annual Thailand Tatler Best Restaurants Guide.
“I am very pleased for our team,” says Hagiwara. “To receive the acknowledgement of the Michelin Guide shows that we are creating dishes that delight our patrons. This award will spur us on to greater heights.”
