I was so excited to try this place. Tried one day and it was closed. When we went back I ordered the special of the day (a fried rice with pigeon peas, salt beef, shrimp, chicken, and long beans). You can only get takeout, so I didn't look at the food until we got back to our rental. As soon... More

We absolutely loved the food. Wish we had gotten more to have for the next day cause we ate it all up. The lady there (cannot remember her name) was super friendly and amazing, showed up pictures of her dog and we chatted the whole while our food was being prepared. She's an awesome person :). We will be coming... More

An Aruban neighbor told me about Effe Anders three years ago and I've been satifying my cravings for Surinameese food there ever since. This is an unimposing, road side take-away snack shack located in Savaneta with a two person swing out front as their waiting area. No AC inside and no real place to eat, so plan to take away...

This is a great place if you are a vegetarian or looking for healthy food. It's hard to find good veggies on the island. I had the cabbage and green beans in peanut sauce and its a huge portion. The place is clean and the proprietor is super nice. It's right near Club Arias if you are staying there.

This is a friendly, humble take-away place in the little town of Savaneta, south of Reina Beatrix Airport. Here is your chance to sample island food that the locals eat, away from the main drag hotels and at non-touristy prices. The roti is a local favorite - go early, it sells out quick! The staff are friendly and happy to... More

This is a wonderful Surinam / Suriname restaurant that serves authentic island fare. It is open 11am-6pm, and it is good to go early to get the most available and plentiful dishes. Their roti is a favorite and runs out quick. They have vegetarian versions of a number of dishes. They are cheery and welcoming and happy to suggest menu items. They understand and speak English.
