Late one evening, tired from a full day of sightseeing and walking about in Amsterdam, we walked around the block from the flat we had rented to discover this interesting restaurant. We thought to ourselves -- "well, we're in this really multi-cultural city, let's try something very multi-cultural." What a great find. The atmosphere was cordial and quiet and the... More

Fantastic food all fresh products. Starters all beautifully presented with lovely warm bread. Mains all delicious(had lamb, chicken and kofte) hardly anything left by my picky teenagers. Nice decor, and passing the kitchen spotlessly clean. Very highly recommended. 120€ for 4 people, definitely good portions.. We were well fed. Near rijksmuseum and Van Gogh within easy walking distance.

Location is near the Museums, the food is just great. The mezes are first class and high quality and the main dishes are really tasty, fresh ingredients, and very adequate portions. We chose the chicken and did this two nights in quick succession. We enjoyed the food and recommend this place very highly. An added bonus is a very quiet... More

I really appreciated the Turkish tapas as a starter ( meses), shared them in a grouo of 15 people. The shoulder lamb I had was also fantastic. For desert agsin we ordered everything to share, home made baklava, pumkin and lemon pie, all just great!

We have eaten here at least 7 times and EVERY time has been excellent. The duck breast from the Ottoman period with the fruit as well as the lamb keep us coming back. Looks like we'll be there for New Year's Eve !

Went here with friends and what a nice surprise it was. Beautiful restaurant, great patio in the back overlooking the canal, friendly staff and great food. We had a taste of everything: fish, meat, vegetarian and it was all good. The restaurant is not easy accessible for people with a disabbility since the restaurant has a lot of stairs. Also... More

Good food, great service, great view. All visitors must try the octopus! Not the ideal place for money for value.

The meal(s! -because in only a 5 day visit, just had to go back again on our last night in Amstrdm) were fabulous, from first course to last! Flavours and spices were direct yet subtle and complex - I will Always... More
