    Will never go there again. We were 7 people and got our food served in one dish. Waiting 1 hour to get our food and at the end it wasn't nice at all. The waiter was rude and refused separate our food

    The food was OK (except for the soggy pancakes) and the atmosphere was fine. They refused to serve tap water though (€6.50 for a litre of water!!!) and the service was extremely slow and inattentive

    Great choice of meals. You will get massive plate of what you ordered together on one plate so you can share. Vege-tarian options! Try Ethiopian red wine! Friendly service. Great music. Come back!

    I've never had this kind of food before but it was incredible! You don't get any cutlery, it just comes out on a giant pancake, and you grab the meat and sauces you want with that. Get banana beer!

    Generous portions. Get the veggie platter and the meat platter and three of you will be stuffed.

    One of Amsterdam's hidden gems, and local favourite. For 3-4 people, ask for a big plate with a bit if everything.

    'Tej' the Ethiopian 'honey wine' can be best described as 'honey liquor': incredibly sweet!!!
