Very interesting food

As I live in Amsterdam, I've been to many restaurants there. I've only ever had main courses in Daar Baand, but can safely say the place is quite enjoyable. The menu has nice variety and the prices are reasonable for Amsterdam - around 16€ for a main course. The food is rather interesting (never... read more

Not common to try Iran gastronomy, we found an Iran restaurant on Overtom in Amsterdam. Casual but diverse choice and tasty food 😃. Ordered some mixed grilled combinations with rice and fresh veggies. Kids loved it and parents too. I recommend this place for the experience 👍

Well, we(me and my wife) are from India, place where you will find delicious and tasty kebabs. We are very much particular on the taste (offcourse this is personal), and Daar Baand didn't disappointed us. We went there to taste the special Chelo Kebab and bingo we loved at first taste. Saffron Rice with good delicious kebab, really soft, well... More

We arrived here before opening hours... staff were nice to welcome us.. We ordered soups ( traditional spinach which was excellent and the chicken soup which is below average). Tapas were very good but spices used in Dholma were far eastern.. sweet and sour . Main course was however not so great.. The meat of the kabab was overcooked. Over... More

I had an exclent traditional Iranian dish called Dizi, a lamb stew with potatoes, tomatoes, beans, etc made in a clay bowl. It was excellent! I will definitely go back on my next trip to Amsterdam.

It's hard to find Persian, let alone great Persian food. We split a four kebab meal after an appetizer of khorma. The khorma was a mixture of sweet and savory and really didn't work. The kebabs were two koobideh, one chicken joojeh, and one lamb barg. My wife enjoyed the koobideh, which is just a ground lamb with some spices.... More

We had a dinner at this restaurant in Oct 2012. We enjoy trying different foods and while the food products are familiar, the preparations are different. The amount of food for an entree is quite a bit. We both like spicy food, not necessarily hot food and found the items we had to be spicy with spices we could not... More

This is an Iranian restaurant. Food is averge. Iranian dishes are interesting and different, there just not fantastic here. Staff is nice and the open hearth cooking in the resturant was gret for my son to watch.
