“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

We decided to try the new restaurant in the area. I was pleasantly surprised with the food. I ordered a shrimp starter, then chicken marsala. I was pleased with the modern style of the dishes compared to traditional indian restaurant. My partner had the chicken sate, and it too was a much better quality than what you typically get in Holland, it had more flavor in the sauce and much better quality chicken than we usually get. The service was very friendly and helpful, and we had some really nice wine. They have cozy outdoor seating. Overall, for the price, it's a good value. And really nice addition to the neighborhood.

“Lunch at Twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Happy to report an excellent lunch at Twist today. Another reason to visit the Amstelveen riviera... ;-) The spicy chicken wings, the Samosas with a delicious Tamarind sauce and a marvelous Chicken Tikka Sandwich all delivered. Lekka as they say round here. The owners staff the front end and as you would expect from a steak holder, smirk, are charming, kind and professional. 10 out of 10 for this one guys and thanks for the great lunch.

“A Welcome Twist in Netherlands..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

A place that would be loved by the adventurous as well as the not so experimental crowd alike...
Situated on the water with a small terrace of its own, Twist serves some delectable delights that taste just as awesome as they look....this applies to the Asian cuisine like for eg. Pla Khiew Waan (Fish in Green Curry) as much as it does to the more traditional homemade burger - (Burger ala Twist) which as the name suggests is completely made by the chef except for the bread of-course...it has a amazing sauce dip that makes it a kind of an addictive dish.

The restaurant also has a amazing choice of wines that go well with the food and the staff will gladly help you match the food with a drink...

The restaurant is pretty huge like the others in the same locality but insipte of the size, the tables are well spaced for a cozy and private dining experience.

There could be a possibility that some people might find this a little pricey especially for the size of the portions for some dishes but that is perhaps the case for most fine dine restaurants.

The staff is courteous and polite and on the toes to assist with anything you need.

“Fantastic Twist!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Really enjoyed a fusion of delicious dishes at this Restaurant.

The combinations were pleasantly pleasing to the palette! I guess that 'know how' comes from the owners existing Indian and Thai Restaurants. They've got it right!

Service was impeccable, a very friendly bunch!

The outdoor seating is overlooking the canal. Perfect spot for gatherings or intimate lunch / dinner.

Will certainly be going back... : )
