“cuisine of the whole world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

A very eclectic menu : Turkish, Moroccan, Greek, Indian, Thai, Chinese (and I forget a few) dishes. We ordered a mezze-menu and what we got was very tasty. With aperitif, a bottle of red wine, coffee €77 for the two of us

“Relaxing on the edge of the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

A Turkish/North African approach to food with tapas size dishes that didn't let us down. The inside of this place is quite impressive in terms of design but we preferred the outside for its relaxed atmosphere of wine bar on the edge of the river.
Shame about the service though.. Slow, slack and inattentive.

“thumbs up for a good restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We went here with a group of 4 and had a very nice dinner. The restaurant is located next to the river Eem right opposite of the Koppelpoort, the medieval city gate that is a kind of symbol of Amersfoort.
Plenty of different seating available: outside (weather permitting), downstairs on long tables and upstairs. We chose a table on the second floor next to the window, enjoying the views.
Waiters are very young but they were friendly and did a good job.
The restaurant has a rather unusual concept specializing in 'world cuisine', serving arab, turkish, mediterranean and asian dishes.
I did fear that this lack of specialization would lead to indifferent food, or to unnatural combinations of dishes but this fear was not founded.
We ordered the 'mezze menu' and had a nice moroccan wine with it.
The menu consisted of a first course with turkish bread and different dips/little dishes to go with it.
The second course had several bigger dishes, ranging from an indian curry to a turkish aubergine dish.
And finally some really nice dessert, we were totally full and really enjoyed it.
Now the only minor criticism is the fact that dishes are probably not really authentic or as spicy as they will be served in India but I do not mind that tastes are adapted to the local palate.

All in all a very nice evening. Definitely will go here again.

“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

The service was wonderful, good for groups because the second floor has lots of space AND windows, so you don't feel like you are being stuffed away in a back room.

“Cosy, efficient, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We took a selection of small dishes and tasted both fish, meat and vegetable dishes. They were all good and very different. Staff were friendly and efficient and we paid less than 20 euros a person. Recommended!
