Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

DO NOT go to this place until they have sorted their FLY INFESTATION. We went for dinner and as soon as the food came out so did all the fruit flies. It was revolting. We couldn’t eat. Mentioned it to staff and they couldn’t have...cared less. No offer of moving tables (although doubt this would have helped), no apology just a shrug of a shoulder. Eventually we couldn’t take it anymore and with an awful attitude of all the staff (particularly the male chef who suggested that if we weren’t happy we could eat somewhere else!) we stormed out and warned others about the infestation on the way. The owner called me about 10 minutes after we left (they had my number as we booked online) and was just full of excuses and was just defensive and not apologetic. According to him “it’s just Amsterdam”… errrmmm, we’d been here 3 days by then and not seen a single fly anywhere else! He called me emotional until I suggested that environmental health could decide if I was emotional. I told the owner (who was apparently doing all they can) that they need to close the restaurant until they have sorted the problem as no one wants to eat with flies!! The kitchen was full of them too, so no doubt some were cooked into our food 🤢. It was honestly the most unpleasant experience ever.More

We stumbled upon this restaurant due to another restaurant we went to was fully booked. To our delight the chicken bar was amazing and I can honestly say I have never had chicken that tested this good before 10/10

Really good chicken. We had a half each, don't bother with knife or forks its a pick it with your fingers. Would advise booking a table, we got in waitress asked if we wouldn't mind sitting at the bar, otherwise it was an hour wait..., so we sat at bar. You have to order all your sides chips, corn on the cob, coleslaw etc, which did push price up but we found that the sides that came were enough for two to share.The only thing was a slight wiff of the toilets now and again, because of proximity to them,otherwise fantastic.More

The chicken was very good. The bar was only ok, they had some mixed drinks but not many beers to choose from. That said, they also had ribs as an option. We did not order the ribs but a person near us had them and...they looked pretty good. That said, this is a place that specializes in chicken and hence I would not recommend getting ribs. In summation, the chicken was very good.More

It is all chicken dishes, to no surprise, but the chicken is great in all the dishes, both the burgers and as just chicken. Also the fries are great and overall the meal felt very filling. The place itself is also cozy.

The most succulent chicken I have tasted in a long long time. The taste is fantastic. Unexpectedly delicious is how my wife described the food. The bread came freshly baked out of the oven. The fries were crispy, the veggies perfectly grilled. The spicy pulled...chicken burger tasted like more...more.....MORE!!!!! Great place to go but you need a reservation as they are very popular!More

Very cosy place. Absolutely delicious chicken. And once upon a time delicious ribs. 3 years ago as i was in amsterdam for a visit, we dined there and it was a life changing experience. I am taking like, to the point when you know someone...can cook that good, you find it difficult to enjoy chicken elsewhere. Well. Here i am 3 years later in amsterdam. So we went there again and boy oh boy. Everything is the same. Even the very hospitable host who welcomed us years ago, she was there. The chicken tasted like heaven. . Lots of things had changed in the city. Inflation doesn’t really agree with quality. But in that place quality and amenities are considered far more important than financial profits. And guests satisfaction is never taken for grantedMore

This was, I'm not kidding, perhaps the best chicken I've ever had. We watched them take our chicken off the spit and plate it. The whole chicken and two sides was perfect for three of us. I booked us about an hour before we came....My only "complaint" was that they didn't open until 13:00.More
