We stopped by by accident on way back to hotel, small venue but lacks nothing in choice of food, we were lucky to stop by just before lunchtime offer ended. The food was very well presented and tasty we had the Nasi goring....mmmmm.

A little chaotic but nice helpful staff, loved the taste of the food but it felt a bit westernized, also very small portions for the price you pay.

The food was outstanding and it was great to see a good variety of vegan options on the menu. Service was good and friendly, if not the quickest. The food all tastes very freshly cooked, so a small wait is to be expected. The only reason for dropping a star is that the toilet facilities were out of order when... More

The following day we went to the Rijksmuseum and returned to the Old City Centre for a final wander through the streets. A big meal was planned for dinner so we returned to Zeedijk (much tamer on Jan 2; this street takes you to the Red-light... More

The food here was so good we actually visited it twice in a week. I have to eat gluten free and the waitress definitely understood my needs, but brought the cook out to speak with me. What a level of confidence that gives you! It was lunch and I ordered the special which was a fried rice with chicken. It... More

We found this place and decided to give it a try. Warm and welcoming, food is wonderful! Had the chicken satay menu, delicious. The nasi goreng was really authentic. Decent prices, worth a pit stop

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
