“BEST FRIES IN AMSTERDAM! MUST TRY!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Basically my title says it all. I would recommend satay and curry sauce combo. It's orgasmic to have hot, crispy fries cooked to perfection any time of the day! There will always be a slight queue (cause it's so good) but don't worry as it clears up really fast. Location a little hard to find though, tucked in an alley. Cheers.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Really yummy chips! We had the mayo and it was delicious. Definitely worth a visit! Also probably the cheapest meal you will have in Amsterdam. We both had the small and it was totally sufficient for lunch.

“Just go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

There is always a line! But it's quick (they usually have 3-4 people working) and well worth the 8 min wait! The frites are cooked to perfection and the mayo and samurai sauces are delish! A must visit, especially if it's your first time having frites in Amsterdam! Their mayo is different than US mayo, so eat like a local and give it a try, your tummy will thank you for it! Check their times though! They close earlier than any of the other frites shops!

“Best patat friet in years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

I stumbled upon this place as I noticed the long waiting line. Born and raised in the Netherlands but living in the Us for the last 15 years, this was worth the 10 minutes wait. Best fries I have ever had.
