The owner always greets my like I am a good friend. Even though I only come here about 2 times a year. Do not confuse this place with the newly... More

Prices were not shown nowhere, only some photos saying 3 euros for some kebak (they explained it was for the small one). When we asked for the bill he said 23€, we thought it was too much so we said... More

Great small restaurant! Friendly people and good food! You can eat here ( 2 persons ) for like 20/25 euros including a drink. I would recommend this to everyone.

I visited this small place with my brother in November 2015. We wanted to eat something different and local and we found this small kebab place. While looking at the menu outside, we decided this could be the right place for us. Guy who was working (we actually guessed he is the owner) helped us with choosing the right thing... More

Advertised prices were lies, the food was disgusting and borderline hazardous, and to top it off the staff had the cheek to charge 10x the advertised price. The shop owners should be arrested for theft. Do not encourage these scoundrels with your patronage.

I wish there was a way to give negative rating. People who work here are thieves. We just had our worst experiance in amsterdam. Walking around, my friend and I were specifically looking for a place that takes credit cards since it's our last night here and we were saving our euros for a ride back to the airport. We... More
