Haarlem is full of restaurants, but one of our all-time favorite cuisines has to be Asian. Time for a full list of Asian restaurants in Haarlem that we’ve tried and tested.

Asian Restaurants in Haarlem

In total, you can find about X Asian restaurants in Haarlem. We haven’t tried them all (yet), but the ones we did try, didn’t disappoint. You can find most of them in the city center, and all of them have something unique and different, so you can pick the restaurant that you think would be best for you. Enjoy!

Mr. Miyagi & Jones, Zijlstraat 56-58

They have restaurants in Utrecht, Arnhem, and Haarlem is properly their best location. At Miyaki & Jones you can enjoy a variety of Asian dishes with a Western twist – call it A-fusion. You can order a la carte but they have a nice deal where you order a three-course menu that includes 2 dishes per person if you share with a friend. Our favourite dishes to choose from are the crispy mango salad, spicy jacked shrimp or the peking duck crepes. On the menu are also innovating cocktails that include rose petals or dry ice for that extra experience. Even with two floors, they which

Konomi, Gedempte Oude Gracht 101

Another amazing Asian restaurant in Haarlem is this Japanese restaurant Konomi. It’s quite small inside, with space for around 10 tables, which makes the setting comfortable and cozy. Dishes are made up incredibly pretty and colorful, and we can pretty much recommend everything on the menu. The sushi rice felt a bit too hard, yet the flavors of the fish (especially the soft-shell crab) made up for it. The Sashimi is soft as it should be, and new on the menu is Konomi’s Shrimp & Vongoles, delicious!

BistroBar Indonesia, Zijlstraat 49

Having Indonesian roots, authentic favors are of major importance. Bistrobar Indonesia comes very close, and we loved their level of spice! We only experienced their take-out concept during the pandemic, but if you come for dinner you will notice the dark and cozy decor. Dishes are presented very well, and you can choose

Cafe Samabe – Indonesian Kitchen Haarlem

Another Indonesian restaurant in Haarlem is Samabe on the Korte Veerstraat. Although we didn’t find that the flavours were as authentic as Bistrobar Indonesia, we enjoyed their traditional rice table concept. Small dishes with veggie and meat combined, or you can pick a fully vegetarian rice table. Both are €32,50 p.p. Rice, cold and warm – you won’t be able to finish it all! Inside, tables and the bar reminded us a little bit of a brown cafe, but the colourful wall painting and many plants brings you to the tropics. A great place to start your evening in Haarlem.

Tatsu Haarlem, Oude Groenmarkt 14-16

Sushi and other Asian bites, as much as you can eat! Ok, we never make it to round 4, but at Tatsu you can eat until you need to open that first button on your pants. Right next to the large Church you’ll find Tatsu 1 and Tatsu 2, both cozy but we preffered the interior of their original location, Tatsu 1.

The round booths and tables are perfect for friends or family, and dishes are ordered by tablet to make it quick and easy. You don’t need to wait long for your food or drinks, and you can order up to 4 dishes at each round. Next to sushi, you can order. Good to know: Kids under 4 years old eat for free and kids from the ages 4 till 12 years old only pay €18,95. Tatsu is open for lunch also and they have a large outside terrace, perfect for that midday break in between shopping.
