Had my first Tibeten meal on Saturday 10 August at this quiet, quaint restaurant near the Flower Market. Very impressed. Attentive staff, great prices and best of all; great tasting food.

The beef dumplings are insane.

A lovely little restaurant tucked away down a side street, busy inside and we had to wait around 30mins but it was more than worth it.

We asked what the waitress would recommend she advised chilli chicken and beef curry and she didn't disappoint. We had one boiled and one fried rice, two plates to share all food and wow to all. The beef was so tender it just fell apart and the chicken was delightful and the rice was cooked and fluffy. The starters of chicken wings and spring rolls were superb to.

Staff throughout were very polite and courteous and the ambiance of the place was relaxed well worth the wait and will defo visit again when in Amsterdam.

We stopped by this place on a Sunday night with no reservation and were asked to wait about 20 minutes. We went to a nearby bar and came back about 30 minutes later and were seated straight away.

The service was great, and the chicken curry was really good. Certainly worth waiting for.

A meal for 2 with starters, mains and a couple of beers was only about 40 euro, and definitely worth it!

We looked for this place after seeing some really amazing reviews on Tripadvisor. Generally, we do our research online before finding a place to dine. 9 out of 10 times the reviews are very helpful and accurate. Unfortunately, the reviews of Norling were not the case, and were overrated.

The location and decor was great - easy to find, clean and nice atmosphere and music. The staff were generally friendly and very attentive.

The menu however was hit or miss. The main draw card - beef dumplings were succulent and juicy. But the vegetarian dumplings were very average and lacked flavour. Moreover, the beef curry was a huge disappointment. The meat was so dry that it was difficult to chew and required more drinking. The flavour of the curry sauce lacked complexity and the usual aromatic smell of spices. As a huge curry lover - this was not impressive. Finally the portions were quite small for the price tag.

Verdict? Try it if you want something different, but not a must.
