The food is so well prepared in a very intimate small setting. Kushal and Shailendra assisted us as we made our choice. Every morsel was delicious! I would go back again and again if I lived in Amsterdam.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Restaurant staff were very helpful. I am gluten free and they made sure that the chef was aware of this to prepare the food. I would have known if this was not the case. Food was delicious.
