During our recent trip to Amsterdam, my husband and I were looking for some type of Asian food that wouldn't cost us an arm and a leg; Amsterdam is a very expensive city!
We found this small restaurant about 15-20 minutes walk from Amsterdam Central Station, past the Dam(main square).

As soon as we entered restaurant, a lady told us we needed to order and pay before seating. This was somewhat inconvenient because we were tired from exploring the city on foot and now I had to look at the wall menu, order, and pay. I am not too familiar with Malay cuisine; therefore, my husband and I just ordered the Malay beef. We did not know how it was going to be, we just needed to sit down and eat.

2 Malay Beef and 2 Chinese teas for 24 Euros
This dish did not disappoint at all, is rich, spicy, and simply good. We liked it so much, that we ended up eating here a second time before leaving Amsterdam. We ordered the same thing. This dish comes with a small type of samosa(very hot-temperature) and steamed rice.

This restaurant is very cleaned, has a cleaned bathroom upstairs, accepts credit cards, and personnel are nice and efficient.

I will eat here again

The place opens in the afternoon. They offer a broad selection of Asian foods. I had a really good spicy noodle soup with beef here. You order and pay at the counter when you get, take a seat and wait for food. The soup was not really spicy but it was good.

A nice place for a good lunch.

This place does what it says on the tin.
You order and pay as you go in,The owners/ staff? are friendly and helpful. The food arrives quickly and is extremely good.
Not what you would normally expect from a place in Amsterdam Tourist Central.
Definitely give it a go for lunch.

Me and a buddy of mine were on our way to a Mexican taco joint, when we walked past this little green and white restaurant. After carefully inspecting the pictures on the menu for three whole minutes, we decided to forget about the Mexican food truck and try our luck at this place.

That decision turned out to be a good one. Everything about this place just felt right; it's roomy but not too big, it was sparsely furnished but didn't feel empty. And the food itself was awesome, can't say much else!

Try before you die!
