Contemporary Asian Cuisine & Bar
Visit the Taiko Website
We invite you to visit the official Taiko website, in order to stay updated with news on the Taiko menus and everything else about the contemporary Asian cuisine and bar.
Contemporary Asian Cuisine
Named after ancient Japanese drums said to beat with a mythic rhythm, it is chef Schilo Van Coevorden’s Asian-inspired restaurant situated within the hotel. With a live Taiko player beating harmonious rhythms during weekends, Schilo’s explosive yet delicate Asian flavours are matched with a beautiful backdrop.
Taiko 5 Year
For Taiko’s fifth year anniversary, Schilo will take it’s guests on the journey he has taken to become the chef he is right now, celebrating the sources of his inspiration. Throughout the year, various four-hands dining experiences in collaboration with international chefs invited by Schilo will celebrate this special milestone.
On 16 and 17 February 2020, Schilo will welcome internationally claimed chef Hisato Hamada (founder of Wagyumafia) in Taiko, cooking with us.
What first started as a playful flirt between kitchen and bar, inspired by a shared love and passion for Asia, has now grown into a new phenomenon within the last five years: Taiko Bar. With excellent service from some of Amsterdam’s best bartenders, supreme bites from Taiko Cuisine and a cocktail menu that makes you feel like you’re in a speakeasy in Roppongi, Taiko Bar translates the sophisticated nightlife of global cities such as Bangkok, Tokyo and Shanghai into the intimate, cosy setting of an Amsterdam neighbourhood pub.
