“Shoarma is killer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

We came here on our last night because we wanted to try Shoarma and it was right across from the hotel. Lucky we did because the food was incredible (we were served turkish bread to start, before they loaded us with salads, pitas, and a mountainous plate of lamb and chips with a selection of delicious sauces) and the staff very friendly. The décor was interesting - there was the ancient Egyptian theme mixed with black and white pictures of old Hollywood stars but it all added to the charm.

“Yummy food and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

A friend and I ate here after arriving to town late in the evening as it was convenient to our hotel. The waiter made several suggestions as to what to order versus what not to order. We both got something similar to a doner with fries and it was great! And the value for the money can't be beat.

It was a nice welcome to our visit!

“Spare ribs to die for!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

The first night we ate here wasn't too good and the lady who took our order got mine wrong. Very bland and dry breaded chicken. But the next time we went with a Dutch friend it was excellent. My spare ribs were amazing, meat just fell off the bone and my husband had a rib-eye steak which he said was wonderful.

“Amazing Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

Across from the best western blue square hotel was my top meal in Amsterdam, the service matched the outstanding food. I had the fillet steak with buffalo wing and side salad, my partner had the mixed grill with salad.

Every ounce of food and drink was consumed within minutes. To put this food in comparison, I was recently at the Dorchester in London less than 2 weeks ago and this fillet was cooked to a higher standard.

Great atmosphere with live sport playing on the big screen with local customers making a good vibe in the room.

1st review of many to come, but this place deserved the recognition!

“Out Of This World Spareribs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

We were staying at the Best Western Hotel across the road & on our first of 4 nights in Amsterdam we ventured into here for a drink. The bar wasn't salubrious so we didn't stay for dinner but went down the road. 2 nights later on a very rainy night we again went in for a drink but this time stayed for dinner. We both ordered the spareribs. I had the spicy ones, my husband had the regular ones. First to come out were 4 different sauces, then a nice salad, then the Turkish bread ( which luckily we didn't eat) & the piece de resistance the ribs! 2 racks each of the most succulent fall of the bone meat. Yum!! Also had the choice of rice, fries or spaghetti. Too much. I tried to eat it all but couldn't quite manage. Loved every biteful.
Service was very friendly & the waiter Sharif most hospitable. I would highly recommend this place & will most likely return tomorrow night.
