we always come here for Suriname take away. the Roti is delicious and so is the Bami (noodles). You get a meal with a meat, green beans, potatoes, and a roti, you can make it a super and it will come with a larger portion and an egg. i recommend getting the egg. they have a sambal which is really spicy but amazing flavor. a must try.

Thank coco s

picture an exotic burrito...curry chicken(or a choice of other meats), potatos, string beans, etc wrapped in a surinaam tortilla...enough for a large lunch or a small dinner for...4.50. and only a short, straight walk out towards the centrum side of Leiden Centraal...5 minute walk, tops. but what's REALly the addictive element for any food that you might purchase here(they have full dinners. still reasonably priced) is the potato chutney that you must ask for...very distinctive flavor with a bit of heat(very tolerable, thereby, another, non dominant dynamic. nothing fancy as far as atmosphere goes...but you can always take your roti roll and sit by one of the beautiful canals &/or windmills very close by...trust me on this one...one of the two best 'cheap eats' i know of in Leiden...not unhealthy, either, as far as i can tell... staff is helpful and friendly, per my experiences...almost forgot to mention...they DO also offer a hotter sambal sauce...it is hot. not super, but hot enough to distract. but also very flavorful. just needed to offer full disclosure. ; - )

one of the lesser known(but well patronized) restaurants on the street leading from the centrum/east side(not LUMC) of Leiden Centraal Station. serving surinaam(former dutch colony) style food. roti is a sort of tortilla. it comes as a side but can also be used in their 'wraps'(which i just had tonite). their food is VERY well prepared...three types of chicken(tandoori, curry and i don't know the 3rd. yet. ; - ), lamb, beef. rice(fried and plain), mein(chinese) type noodles and wonderful sides. the people here really know what they're doing. they spice the foods juuuust right. but spicy doesn't necessarily mean hot. although, trust me, if you like hot they have this hot sauce(sambal) that will ring your bell. another condiment they have here, their homemade potato chutney is addicting. a slight amount of heat but a WHOLE lot of fantastic flavor. don't say i didn't warn you about the addicting part. the prices are VERY reasonable and they have meals for varying degrees of hunger. the atmosphere is nothing fancy but the people are definitely helpful and friendly. in my case, patient. i tend to ask a lot of questions. but this is the result. a more in depth review...they also, of course, have vege dishes...and sides like tempeh. if this sounds at all appealing then i'd advise dropping in. while sitting there it was obvious they have a LOT of regulars. soon they'll be adding me to that long list.
