Definitely the best restaurant I've tried in Rotterdam or the Netherlands..the food is outstanding. The atmosphere is a bit cramped inside and the decor leaves something to be desired but you won't care as soon as you taste the amazing flavourful dishes. The price and value is also really excellent - it's one of the cheaper restaurants in town! Have... More

Just love the food here. Their meze is terrific and I always finish it all without realising that I have to keep some room for the main course: mixed grill. To be honest, I hardly eat meat but I make exceptions if I know that it is beautifully prepared and worth it to eat it. And at Dunya it is!... More

I had the mixed grill and that was good. I really enjoyed it. Then I debated having the baklava and wish I had decided not too. My baklava was soggy, not crip and crunchy the way I expected it to be. Baklava is one of my favorite desserts. I know a good baklava. This was not one of them. Would... More

Located just behind central station, dunya locata is a very nice, cosy restaurant. We have been with a big group of 30 people, but didn't had to wait so long for our food. Both appetizers as well as main course were delicious!

Very busy place, making a reservation highly recommended. Not for people that mind sitting close to others. Also, service is friendly but seems a bit chaotic at times. For me, it has become part of the atmosphere of this restaurant. I love eating here, especially the starter with bread and many different dips is exceptional!

We had a delicious meal in this restaurant which was recommended to us by the owner of the B&B we stayed in. She was certainly correct is saying that it is an excellent place to eat. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. You will never leave this place hungry. Not only were the staff very friendly... More

We visited this restaurant with a group of 9 people on the advice of some friends of us. We ordered the 'Groepsgerecht' (Group Meal) for all of us. This is a mix of 22 small dishes with desert included. We loved the mezes! Subsequently, a side dish was served and immediately after the main course was served. The "mixed grill"... More

Very nice restaurant. You can order menu's with up to 22 different dishes. The food was very tasty but it was very crowded. Nice ambience but not really a 'romantic' or 'cosy' setting. Service was fast and decent.
