Only tried ramen

Really wanted to eat ramen when I happened to see this restaurant. The taste was okay but it was more like Chinese traditional noodles rather than Japanese ramen.

The staff are unfriendly, the food was terrible and slapdash. They gave me tempura prawns in my sushi where I had to remove it to take the tail off and put it back. The sushi rolls themselves were falling apart, they were just a mess in general. Seems like other people have had okay experiences but it's so hot and... More

I ordered ramen and I was hoping that it would be something decent. Unfortunately, it was a very sad and disappointing dish. Bowl of water with a light taste, I could not place. Had stomach ache afterwards too. I don't like giving bad reviews, but I was simply not happy with this one.

We stumbled across this restaurant, and I am glad we did. Food was very good, the service was very good, and it wasnt too expensive for a restaurant in the centre of Amsterdam. The Raman that I had really did hit the spot, and very similar to those I have had in Japan. I am sure that there may be... More

Nice bowl of ramen hit the spot for 7 Euros! Meal was promptly served by a quiet waitress, and I slurped away for 20 minutes or so til the bowl was empty! Would go again.

When the staff has wanted to close the restaurant, they literally kicked us out in a very rude way. They cleared the table without asking us... and they opened wide the door. That's a shame because the food was not bad.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
