Correct and easy going.

A place to enjoy yourself without any worries. It might get a bit noisy, but is in line with the atmosphere. The food is good, prices are reasonable. Don't go there to have a profound experience. Make a reservation for Fridays or Saturdays.

Good atmosphere, food was good, but i prefer having my beer served in a glass, not all over my sweater. I do see that everybody can make mistakes, but if you spill a whole beer over your guest the waiter should at least apologize, and not just say; "oh, this has never happened before." If they had tried to come... More

Spread over three floors and packed most evenings but surprisingly the service is quick and food good.The portions are quite large so you might want to consider sharing.

This restaurant is found in connection with the Hotel Bazar hotel in Rotterdam. I had not researched anything before-hand and just ended up here for a late lunch / early dinner. And I have to say I was pleasantly pleased. The food is middle-eastern with a western twist (more fast food than "real" mid-east food). I had the pork ribs... More

Atmosphere is very mid eastern, music was a bit loud but endurable. Food is very very good, but quite greasy. Consider eating here if you want to have that "if I'm eating unhealthy today then let me do it the right way"-meal.

Went here on a whim after walking past, did not regret it! Get the bizar bazar: great spread of dishes, and available as meat, fish or vegetarian.

I have lived for around one year and a half in Rotterdam, and this is still my favourite place. I always take the people visiting me here, and they are always impressed. If you like middle-east food, this is the place to come. If you do not know what to ask for, ask for the mixed "Bizar Bazar".

This place is a great place to enjoy middle eastern food at a reasonable price. I have spent quite a bit of time in Rotterdam on business trips and have gone back to this place many a time to eat dinner. I have eaten everything on the menu and can recommend the Dante ribs which are grilled veil ribs very... More
