OTEMBA is where Eastern traditions and modern Western influences merge in the vibrant city of Amsterdam. OTEMBA means untamable, rebellious, and bold. We have two locations: in the heart of Amsterdam’s Pijp district, you’ll find our newest OTEMBA gyoza bar, where street food and hip-hop culture come together in a cool, relaxed setting. In De Pijp, the focus is on our signature gyoza and Japanese bites, each with a unique twist. The atmosphere is undeniably hip-hop, and our bar is the perfect hangout for lovers of umami flavors and a chill vibe. In Amsterdam West, at OTEMBA Ramen, innovation takes center stage with our creative ramen and traditional Japanese dishes. The restaurant is adorned with graffiti murals from the world’s best graffiti artists, creating a unique atmosphere. At both locations, you can enjoy an assortment of Japanese sake, whiskies, and highballs to complete your OTEMBA experience.
