The Conservatorium's Taiko Cuisine is located in the former percussion room of the Conservatorium School. In the early days while walking along the Paulus Potterstraat when the windows were open, people could hear the students practicing their drum solos.  

At this Asian inspired restaurant, created by Schilo Van Coevorden, we take the guests on a journey, every dish is created with the best quality products and attention to details.

Just like in the past, the sounds of the drum bounce of the walls, thanks to the percussionist who plays the Taiko drum during dinner every Friday and Saturday night.

The kitchen of Taiko Cuisine is opened Mon-Thu 6:30PM – 10:30PM, while Friday and Saturday the kitchen is open until 11:30PM. Sundays the restaurant is closed.
