Do not visit this horrible place, unless your stomach is ready to receive rotten food! Waiters seems to care each other more then to the guests. It's clear this place has a limit and should redesign their service and kitchen and it might rebound successfully. Cause the location is fairly good.

I really liked it here. The saké was superb and came with a story of how the plumbs were harvested. You can buy small tapas, like two or three. Many meat, fish or vegetarian options. I was with a group of friends, some more cautious and some more adventurous in their choices, and we all had a good meal and an excellent time. You can sit at a table with chairs or in a more lounge setting with low tables and couches.
Highly recomended!

LE:EN offers a nice place for a drink or small dishes with an Asian twist. I love the salads, but the Peking duck is also very nice. It is situated in an old garage nearby de Toonkamer. Not a place we're you would expect an restaurant. But the interior is nice. if you are planning to stay very long, I would advice the lounge couches

Been here twice....first in the old venue, last week in the new place just outside of the centre.

+ Food, Food, Food. The menu is very good and contains a lot of culinary surprises.
+ Location
+ Friendlyness of the staff

+ Waiting. Puhlease work a bit quicker and pay attention to who wants another drink, another round of tapas and who wants to pay
+ Price: It's (a bit) overpriced. Please be careful with what you ask.

Okay, the concept is nice, all kinds of Asian food served as tapas, but OMG, how long can it take to serve some bites?! We were with a group of 9 on a saturdaynight, so I can forgive a bit of delay but to take 4,5 hours(!) to serve 3 courses of small bites? And also... for 25 euro I kinda expect dessert as well.... The food was not bad I'll give them that. In the waiting time in between courses it would have at least been nice if they would fill up our drinks or at least notice the empty glasses and ask if we would have wanted more....
And why let us wait an hour with our first drink before serving the first bites ? The Naan- bread and pappadums could have been presented long before the first course... so I guess it's a learning- experience, not only for us but also for the staff?
