This small restaurant in Amstelveen is a bit like a home away from home, always full of locals (ie Korean guests), which is always a good sign. Food is fabulous and service very friendly, we always go there as family and are never disappointed. Reservations are highly recommended.

This restaurant is a gem because it is one of the few places in the Netherlands where you can get authentic Korean food. Not suitable for people who don't like spicy food or don't like kimchi and other heavy tasting cabages. Especially recommended for a bit larger group of people since in this case you can sample from the very... More

Small cozy Korean restaurant located in the old part of Amstelveen. This restaurant serves some nice traditional authentic dishes. Staff is nice and helpful if you have difficulty making a choice. Various side dishes, like kimchi, will be served with the main course. The only downpart could be the Korean BBQ dish which guests should prepare at their own table.... More

Really great Korean food. Me and a friend had 8 different dishes to share, each one was unique. I would definitely recommend it to others in the area.

Damso is a Korean restaurant frequented by Koreans, so that might be a sign of authenticity of the cuisine. The food, however, was below par in our case. The hot chicken that we had was really hot, I mean extremely spicy. Although I like spicy food, the food itself should taste good as well, not overwhelmed by spices and MSG... More
