“Follow the crowd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

As far removed from a UK chippy as you can get and all the better for it. We were attracted by the huge queue and can see why they were there - the chips/frites.fries/whatever are amazing, and complimented by so many sauces the locals must never get bored. Certainly beats chippy sauce in the UK.

“Roberto and Rundeepa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

The boys loved shoving piping hot chips down their eager throats. Mayo messiness all over faces, looked like a mass sarco had occurred without oracles. Beautiful

“One of the Best Fries ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Always Long queue ....but worth waiting for it.
Plain, with Mayo, with Ketcup, whatever......all good.
Go for Large size, if you do not want to get back in the queue for more.

“Best chips EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Ok, so they only sell chips. You'll be disappointed if you want a burger, hotdog, steak or anything else.

I guess that because they only sell chips, this is the reason their chips are the best you'll find anywhere.

Get a large portion (in the traditional Dutch paper cone), plaster on the mayonesse, take it with your little plastic fork to the National Monument at Dam Square, and enjoy!

“Very satisfying”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We were feeling the pangs of hunger, and these frites totally hit the spot. They're everything you could want in a fry. There are lots of different sauce options, so I guess that leaves me no choice but to try them all.
