“Happy Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

The Jamaican/Japanese couple running the place are super nice and fun. The food feels like you've been invited to eat at someone's place and his mom is cooking for you. Assuming that the mother is half-Jamaican half-Japanese and likes to listen to Bob Marley while cooking. Great home-made vegan food with a smile. Absolutely recommended!

“Great food, very calm place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

The place is very hidden, walked in there more or less randomly. It seemed a bit dodgy on first sight but the friendly, be it slow, service and the delicious udon noodles made up for it.
Can only recommend this place if you want to chill out and have a relaxed meal.

“Lovely small vegan cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

This cafe is fully vegan with a Japanese and Caribbean menu. Sounds odd? Yes, but the food is good. You'll get a head full of reggae music too, which I have to say is not my favourite... The cafe itself could do with a bit of a face lift but as it's a small place with a not too expensive menu it might be struggling a bit to spend money on decorations. For Amsterdam this cafe's prices are very reasonable as it's all freshly cooked. I got the sauted tofu which was very tasty and my husband got vegan chicken katsu which was also very good. He also got a side of miso soup which was one of the best miso soups I've tasted. I'd second that you shouldn't go here for 'fast' food. I will be back to try out more of the menu!
