“Superb location, great food and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

A colleague who lives locally took us to this restaurant, which has an outside area on the river. Thje weather was lovely which made for an excellent setting.

The food is a fusion between Indian and Thai, with some interesting combinations. WE all had the special tandoori chicken which came with the most perfectly cooked naan bread (think and light) a range of very tasty dips and the wine choices were very tasty.

This was one of the best Indian meals I have ever had and we finished with an ice cream over the road which was AMAZING

“Very fresh, very unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

We went there just to try some "different" food and were very pleasantly surprised with the unique taste of each dish we ordered. We ordered mushrooms with cheese as starter, lamb as main course and the food was absolutely amazing. The location is also very excellent with great views on the water. Thoroughly recommended to anyone who loves food!!

“very, very average….”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

it's just not worth the money to be honest. if you can sit outside it's fun: you sit next to the water, boats go by…..but that's it. It's supposed to be fusion cooking, but the only fusion is on the menu. A few exotic dishes and not prepared well. Sorry, can't make much of it.

“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

We decided to try the new restaurant in the area. I was pleasantly surprised with the food. I ordered a shrimp starter, then chicken marsala. I was pleased with the modern style of the dishes compared to traditional indian restaurant. My partner had the chicken sate, and it too was a much better quality than what you typically get in Holland, it had more flavor in the sauce and much better quality chicken than we usually get. The service was very friendly and helpful, and we had some really nice wine. They have cozy outdoor seating. Overall, for the price, it's a good value. And really nice addition to the neighborhood.

“Lunch at Twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Happy to report an excellent lunch at Twist today. Another reason to visit the Amstelveen riviera... ;-) The spicy chicken wings, the Samosas with a delicious Tamarind sauce and a marvelous Chicken Tikka Sandwich all delivered. Lekka as they say round here. The owners staff the front end and as you would expect from a steak holder, smirk, are charming, kind and professional. 10 out of 10 for this one guys and thanks for the great lunch.
