Chef Hosokawa

Chef Hosokawa embarked on his dream over 45 years ago as a Master Chef at the Okura Hotel in Japan. In 1992, Chef Hosokawa made the courageous decision to open his own restaurant in the vibrant heart of Amsterdam. Since then, with unparalleled dedication and passion, he has realized his own vision and style at Hosokawa, now thriving for over 30 years.

A true master of his craft, Chef Hosokawa maintains the same passion he had on day one, even at the respectable age of over 70. With the precision and dedication that are characteristic of Japanese cuisine, he strives to provide our guests with an unforgettable experience. Together with his carefully trained team, personally mentored by Chef Hosokawa himself, we look forward to welcoming you to our Chef’s Table. Here, we will treat you to sublime Japanese dishes prepared with the most exquisite ingredients.

Top-quality ingredients

We take pride in using top-quality ingredients, including the renowned Bluefin Tuna and exclusive Japanese Wagyu beef. Our commitment to quality and authenticity ensures that every bite is a true flavor sensation.

Bluefin Tuna

A treasure of the sea, it tantalizes the senses with its unparalleled flavor and texture. Each succulent piece reveals the perfect balance between tenderness and a rich umami sensation, making every bite a true culinary journey.


Renowned for its luxurious marbling, it is a masterpiece of gastronomic delight and the ultimate source of umami. Its delicate and buttery flavor melts on the tongue, leaving a lasting impression.
