“A Very Good Asian Dining Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

Went to Norling in June 2014. Norling is nestled amongst several restaurants but do not get distracted. It is worth going to.

Ordered the spring rolls (spicy sweet sauce), lamb curry that was medium spicy, and the special creamy potatoes.

All the food was of a very good standard. But of course expensive being in Central Amsterdam.

Go and enjoy!

“Beautiful food, amazing service...delighted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

I ate here on Sat 14th June as part of a party of 7 girls in Amsterdam for a hen weekend. I booked it due to its great reviews and also as it had a set 'Experience' menu which was ideal for a group booking....I wasn't disappointed. From start to finish it was lovely! The staff could not have been more accommodating and friendly, when we asked for menu recommendations he offered to bring us out a variety of different dishes so we could sample everything they offered. When the food started to arrive we were actually salivating; each dish was so different, from light fragrant curries to noodle dishes (special mention to the creamy buttery potatoes...we were fighting over that one and scraped the bowl dry!). We were meant to get two bottles of wine between the group but the waiter supplied us with more for no extra charge, an unnecessary but very much appreciated extra.For just under 35 euros a head we had a beautiful three course meal and left with full bellies and happy faces.
Overall I would thoroughly recommend Norling, it is a lovely building with a pleasant calming ambience, beautiful food and the staff really did make us feel so welcome, it was a delight. Thank you Norling for our wonderful meal, I will be hunting you out again next time I come to Amsterdam!!

“Very Nice Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

We had a dinner here a couple of weeks ago. This was our first exposure to Tibetan cuisine. The waitstaff was extremely helpful in making suggestions to our party of four so that we would have good samplings of food for all of us to share. This was our first night in Amsterdam and it turned out to be our best meal in that city. The prices are fair for the quality of the dining experience. No need to get dressed up - we came in our sightseeing clothes. I would recommend making reservations because it was busy.

“Very Good Tibetan Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Norling is located in Regulierdwarsstraat, which is full of a wide range of restaurants near Koningsplein in the heart of Amsterdam.

We dined at 5 p.m. on a Saturday evening and although the restaurant was empty at the time, I don't think we would have got a table much later without a reservation as it filled up with some large parties.

We opted for the 'Norling Experience' which consisted of a starter, main course, dessert and house wine for each person at EUR 30 per head. As there were only four starters on the menu, we had them all between us, namely, spring rolls, beef and vegetarian dumplings and chicken wings. I had a prawn dish whose name I can't recall for main with rice, and mango ice cream for dessert.

The food was good and the service quick and friendly. The ambience in the restaurant was comfortable and I would undoubtedly return but make sure I made a reservation next time.
