“Good Kurdish flavours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

Great little neighbourhood restaurant serving fresh tasting food. Very friendly owner who did his best to make us feel welcome and explain Kurdish menu and cooking styles. Good house wine and also good value prices. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

“Delicious food in a quite bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

The food was delicious and so cheap, really too big a portion but it was so good we ate all of it. The house wine was also delicious, better than a glass that cost as much as the carafe from another bar down the street.

“Excellent food, personal service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

An amazing restaurant, great value for money. The quality of the food is excellent as well as it's display. The latter combined with the kind, personal service creates a wonderful atmosphere altogether. We had a wonderful experience, highly recommended.

“Delicious Kurdish food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

We felt like we were taking a risk with this place, just because it didn't look great from the outside. However we had heard good reviews so we went for it. The restaurant was around half full, ok for mid week. The waiter could have been friendlier and went out to smoke at every opportunity, I assume the owner wasn't around to keep an eye on him! The food was delicious, the meat was so tender and the flavours really interesting. We had never had Kurdish food before but we definitely will after this meal! The desserts were good too. I definitely recommend this place, 5* food (just don't expect 5* service).

“A lovely finish to 2013”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

On New Year's Eve we needed something to eat before going into Amsterdam for the celebrations and fireworks. This little restaurant in the Museum Quarter was jam-packed (turned out a Kurdish family had hired the place for their own celebration, but they very kindly allowed us and anotther couple to take tables!) Kurdish food is very similar in style and taste to Turkish and we had a lovely, tasty meal cooked with fresh wholesome ingredients. This is the second time we've been in Amsterdam for New Year, and the second time we've eaten here. The proprietor and staff are so welcoming, and although the place may be slightly rustic for some tastes, we love it!
