This great restaurant is in the same street as the Albert Cruypt market, which I sure is a sign! It serves a mix of various middle eastern dishes and they are very well realised, with nice combinations and flavours. The menu is varied and they...More

The atmosphere was better than the food I think, but the food was ok... not sure if I would go back though. Maybe I didn't order the best entree?

This was maybe my 10th visit to this restaurant. The lamb schack and fish couscous were delightful. Great hummus. Gigantic portions. Huge restaurant with plenty of sitting in a very lively neighboorhood.

Fabulous Middle Eastern restaurant Great service. Delicious and reasonably priced food offered in a marvellous setting (converted synagogue decorated with bright colours )- cool and inviting particularly during a heat wave.

Very slow service, waited more than one hour, orders are lost. Undercooked meat, bread not baked off. Overstretched kitchen. Rude non attentive staff. Non responsive business manager. Too bad because the place could have a lot going for it.

Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag
through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp
Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s
many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic
thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in
search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly
half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners
and a good number of them are students. Here you'll
