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, people could hear the students practicing their drum solos. Today, guests flock to this space for a fine-dining experience.
This Asian inspired restaurant is created by Schilo van Coevorden. We take our guests on a culinary journey across Asia. 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. The kitchen of Taiko Cuisine is opened from 6:00PM – 10:30PM.
