Tried the shwarma. Not worth it. Grouchy staff with lousy attitude and service. Not very clean either. Avoid this place.

Medium quality kebab food largely overpriced (and over rated on this website). Service is just horrible, the manager is half aggressive half douchy. No toilets. There is way better places to eat. Forget this one

One of my best taste experiences in Amsterdam and highly recommended to... More

We visited this restaurant on 23 Dec 2013.The food was excellent and the prices excellent. The food was freshly prepared and served hot. We were served by Mahmoud a very friendly Egyptian. The food is halal and no alchohol is served so this will suit Muslim diners as well.
