I did a cookery class with Jina who is a lovely guy. The quality of the food is great and all the ingredients are excellent. There are no shortcuts taken here. He showed us how to make 3 vegetarian curries, coconut sambal and aubergine salad, all of which we ate for lunch afterwards. What a feast. I highly recommend this... More

There is a good choice on the menu, but the only drawback is that you will often wait a 'brief' period of time for your food. But it is always worth the wait, portion sizes are perfect... More

Try the falafel here! The mixture is good and from the outside nice and crunchy. The bread, the salad and the saus it comes with are very good as well. Staff is very friendly, give it a try I would say!
