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.

The best take out food in Amsterdam! The potatoes are simply wonderful, crispy and soft, the sauces are extremely tasty, and the parmesan just adds to the whole experience. We visited it on a weekday around 2 pm and there was a few meters of...queue, but the staff has a very well organized system and we got our order in less than 5 minutes. We recommend ordering medium fries with cheddar cheese, mayo and truffle mayo.More

Very disappointing customer service and extremely rude staff. We visited on Wednesday 24 April at around 19.00 and as we were placing our orders at the till and asking a question about the sauces, the person at the till was horrendous and shouted at us....This aggressive and unjustified attitude, from a person whose job is to deliver good customer service, really ruined our evening . The fries weren't great either - this place is so overrated and not worth it. Also be prepared to meet a security person at the door who 'manages' the queue but again he was very rude, had no manners and no sense of customer service whatsoever. I will never visit this place again nor recommend it to anyone. Very disappointing experience.More

A true food highlight of our trip! The line is long but moves very quickly so do not let any wait deter you. The fries were perfectly cooked an incredible truffle mayo/parmesan topping. This is a must-have moment.

Most delicious chips! Had the curry ketchup and mayo with onions on and it was just super yummy! Can’t thank the staff enough for how attentive they were throughout our visit!

Chips are gluten free as are most of the toppings and sauces. Staff knowledgeable of cross contamination and so easily catered for my coeliac daughter. The chips are so good there are often queues but well worth the wait!

We had been recommended to go to this place - and when we arrived at just after 2pm on Friday (not long after some pretty heavy rain, which may explain this) there was a long queue that crossed the street and went all the way...over the nearby bridge! Nevertheless, this was very well-policed by the staff and moved pretty quickly - probably took us around 15 minutes The signature truffle mayonnaise and parmesan frites are delicious - I'm glad we went.More

Didn’t get the hype. No offense the fries and sauces were delicious but not the best fries I ever had. If it wouldn’t have been for the great reviews I never would have thought for myself „wow these are so great“. The Price is alright,...but I guess you can similar French fries cheaper and with a shorter queue.More

There is usually a massive queue for this place so I wanted to check what the fuss was about after seeing this place appear on social media. The chips were very good but nothing above average, I could make something just as good at home....You can get chips anywhere in Amsterdam of a high standard and it’s not worth the queue unless your desperate for truffle and parmesanMore

Saw this place plastered all over TikTok and we had to try. Watching the fries be made, they were so fresh and hot. Super crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Relatively cheap too for 2 portions of chips, we loved it. Would...definitely recommend to anyone especially if you’re wanting a quick dinnerMore

Honestly the nicest chips I’ve ever had, could have gone back for every meal of the trip. We didn’t have to que at all and we went around 2pm, staff were really friendly and it was really organised.

Only a short queue and well worth waiting for. It’s a simple formula that really works, love the fact they care for the environment around them too, you don’t see any rubbish on the streets as a result of them. The chips and toppings are...as promised. You just have to hunt around to find a bench to eat them on!More
