“Tjing Tjing has got it all!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

You can expect to get the full treat here: tasty and authentic african cuisine, friendly service and lovely atmosphere. We had a fantastic dinner at Tjing Tjing - starting with the warm welcome from the staff. The service was very friendly and attentive yet still very discreet - just perfect for a romantic dinner! The portions served are very generous and most of all super tasty. Nothing left to desire...

“A work of love”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

This little gem is well worth a visit if you enjoy places built on passion. The food was quite excellent, particularly the dessert, a delicious Malva pudding with Amarula. The decor is lovely and the service was very friendly. Will definitely visit again, particularly in the summer for the barbecues.

Very friendly staff and helpful staff. The portions are generous and absolutely delicious. We've been here a couple of times now and it has become one of our top #3 resturants in Amsterdam.
