We stumbled across this restaurant on our first night in Amsterdam and it was excellent. As there was a big group of us the lady who worked there recommended everything from the food to the wine and it was all delicious! Wish we had one of these back home!!

I was craving for ethiopian in Amsterdam and found this place near Old Dapper Market. Wouldnt rate it high for ambience, but service and food were good.

We stumbled across this little restaurant and were positively surprised. The food was served on a huge plate with some pancakes. The food was tasty and the restaurant decoration was beautiful. A good advice is to order different dishes and share

I found this restaurant on a website that said it had good options for vegetarians and vegans. We were surprised in a great way: the food was delicious and much! We asked for vegan dishes and the owner happily advised us. She even let one of her staff members run to a grocery store to buy soy yoghurt (on a... More

A spur of the moment decision to dine here as we were staying in the nearby Tropen Hotel and what a great decision. My wife and I both had Dorho which is meat, chicken if I remember correctly in a spicy red sauce served with feta cheese, yeast pancakes and a variety of side dishes. Now to be true to... More

We wandered into this cute restaurant of a Sunday night. The service was very friendly and they were very attentive to our dietary needs and likes/dislikes. The service was a little slow but once the food arrived we couldn't complain as it was so delicious!! It was fresh and wonderful. We were full after the meal but still wanted more!... More

My friend and I arrived on a Wednesday evening around 18h and found ourselves alone in the restaurant. The decor was bright and colorful, and the waitress was friendly and helpful. I had the pumpkin and lamb and my vegetarian friend had a foufou dish with a kind of mushroom stew. The food seemed to take forever, considering that we... More

We enjoyed our dinner very much, particularly the vegetarian samosa and shrimp curry. The restaurant is small, intimate,and beautifully appointed. Excellent and unusual beer and ale list. Try the honey ale or palm nut beer. It was a great retreat from the hustle bustle of the city.

Unusual food mostly curry based food served on a pancake. However we did enjoy the food but would've enjoyed it more if we had knives, forks and napkins available to us as we were expected to eat with our hands. The staff particularly the owners were quite strange. When we asked for the bill the member of staff asked if... More
