Description: Semmy's is really fantastic for a quick cheap lunch when you're blitzing through the crowds in the most touristy part of downtown Amsterdam. It's just a five minute walk from the main train station, and 4 euros will get you a fantastic durum or donor kebab.

You wont find any nicer people serving any better food for such a good price anywhere in any big city. Absolutely delicious food. They will make it just the way you like it. Highly recommended indeed.

“Super good and enjoyable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013 via mobile

Stopped in here based on reviews and could not be happier! I got the dumur wrap with lamb. Ended up with the meal which included fries and a bottle of soda for only €6.50! When the wrap came it was huge! The nice thing was that it was longer and skinnier so I could actually hold it to eat. And I watched then make it and they layered on lamb then lettuce, onions, and cucumbers and then MORE lamb. Yum! Oh, and sauce on the top before rolling. I had asked for it without tomatoes, but it usually has this too. I chose to eat in and didn't feel rushed or uncomfortable at all. What a great lunch spot :)

“Good value as BIG portion sizes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2012 via mobile

Plumped for this over the wok and walk that was opposite and was pleased I did. Was very tasty meat and a big portion. I only managed half. The Semmy's special at €5.50 was a nice change from normal kebabs- it was meat, fries, salad and lots of sauce in a noodle style takeaway box. Much easier to eat on the move as well! Only shame was the chips were stuck at the bottom for most of it. Good value though and really tasty- much cheaper than eating out.

“Quick and good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2012

We were pretty hungry when we arrived in Amsterdam and needed something to eat "right now". Semmy's was perfect. Quick, good, and reasonable.
