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 Conservatorium hotel. With a live Taiko player beating harmonious rhythms on Saturdays, Schilo’s explosive yet delicate Asian flavours are matched with a beautiful backdrop.

Ingredient of the year
Every October on Taiko New Year, Taiko Cuisine celebrates its birthday. Here our new ‘ingredient of the year’ is revealed and our brand new Omakase menu is launched. After the great exposion for Hida Wagyu, wasabi, Kingcrab and soy, this year it is the turn of the Hiramasa Kingfish to take the centre stage in the much acclaimed Asian kitchen of Chef Schilo van Coevorden.

Taiko Bar
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.
