After searching for a vegetarian/vegan restaurant I was excited to go to TerraZen since I saw so many good reviews about it. And yes, some things are good about the place but there are too many negatives. The place is cosy in a relaxed way and the WiFi is very fast and these are good things. When I arrived there... More

This was our first stop on our 4 day trip to Amsterdam. TerraZen is a 10 minute walk from Centraal station on a side street. Even though the premises is small Rogers accommodated our large group with a smile and treated us like family. I ordered the Jamaican plate which was the best freshly made food I have had in...

I searched for vegatarian/Vegan food for my trip before we left. Read a few reviews and marked it off on the map. When we arrived in Amsterdam we decided to give this place a try. What a great place! Rogers was very welcoming and surprised to see 19 people walk through the door. He was not phased by the amount... More

I found this restaurant visit Google search prior to our visit. The owner was surprised that we made a special trip to his restaurant and equally surprised that we travelled from London. The food is delicious. I tried the Jamaican Plate the Fried Noodles and the noodle soup. Going back tomorrow for our last meal before we go home. Will... More

It was great to discover this small vegan restaurant in Amsterdam which serves a mix of Japanese and Caribbean vegan food. The service was very quick, staff were helpful, and most importantly the food was delicious - I had the crispy 'chicken' roti wrap which was great and a very big portion too for 12.5 euros! They also sell some... More

I have been to terrazen 3 times , but only in the first time I thought the food was good , the rest of the time was from average to horrible . The wrap is still reasonable but don't order the noodle soup . its worse than a Korean instant noodle package or is it a Korean instant Noodle ????... More

Went with my husband, we are both vegans. Cute little place with a very good food. Wish the 2 girls working there were nicer, but it didn't ruin dinner.

Excellent Vegan food. Relatively well priced. I found the seating arrangements a little awkward (sharing one big table with other groups) but it was well worth the visit. If you want a quality vegan meal in Amsterdam you must visit this place.

We found this little place through a friend's recommendation. It's advertised as Caribbean-Sushi, which was intriguing enough for us. The owner is absolutely lovely -- very friendly and welcoming. All the food is vegan (huzzah!) and delicious. One of us had the tempeh sushi and the others had the Jamaican plates with a sinus-clearing dose of spice! Try the chocolate... More

We had the Vegan Plate and the Vegetarian Roti. They were amazing. The tofu and wraps are home made to a special recipe and are tasty and light. I think it's all made fresh by the owners and the results are delicious. People came back time and again and the cafe soon filled up during our visit. People sat on... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
