“stylish modern asian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

an amsterdam version of Nobu or Zuma . A bit on the pretentious side as we we were made to wait 20 odd minutes to get a table although our booking was confirmed . However it seems this is where the "beautiful people" of Amsterdam hang out with all its plusses and minuses. Food was great and service after we finally got our table was also great. The decor is interesting although avoid the long table in the middle as it reminded me of a public school cafeteria seating which is not what you want to get when you are paying this much for a meal. A plus is the location next to a mini redlight district which made for interesting viewing coming in and out of the place.

“Delicious Food, Amateurish Staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

I come to this restaurant because it is conveniently located and has tasty dishes (the garlic shrimp spinach salad and crispy duck rolls are great). It takes FOREVER for you to get drinks, and the bartenders act like they are working at a student bar and not a high end restaurant. There is one bartender that is great (a black girl from London), I won't go there anymore unless she's working.

The food is expensive but worth while, the atmosphere is great, the place is always busy and the service is fast - which is important in this town!

“Asian-South American Fusion, interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went there for a family celebration meal, and really enjoyed it, although the format is unusual. It's kind of tapas size portion, with all options being a mixture of asian and south american flavours. There are a lot of fish dishes, and all are delicious. It is expensive though, and the portions are pretty small.
The atmosphere is good, the cocktails are tasty, the staff is friendly and the service attentive - so overall it was a nice experience if a bit overpriced.
