The service was outstanding, I asked for a recommendation from the server and he suggested something I’d never had before; King Prawn Jalfrezi. It was lovely, just the right amount of spice and they really catered to the level of heat we said we could handle. My boyfriend loved his food and it’s definitely a place we’ll go back to when we return to Amsterdam. An all round excellent experience and I would really recommend it.
