Delicious food! We had tried Ethiopian before, but this place really surprised us. The food was tasty, with plenty of spice and lots of vegan options, too. We'll definitely be back for more.
I went here with a group of friends, and we had one of our best nights together. The hosts are wonderful and they help you choose the food and the drinks, while introducing you to the cultural aspect of it. The atmosphere is very cozy, and the food is delicious, Expect to have a freshly made enjera, which of course pairs wonderfully with the rest of the meal. And don't forget to ask them for a drink at the end of the meal - the hosts will be happy to recommend you a nice liquor to end your meal!
Better than expected after reading the reviews on Iens! I did feel somewhat deceived having to pay 30 euros, therefore not really receiving the second 3-course menu free with the Albert Heijn coupon. Entree was indeed small-portioned, main course was enough and of good tase. Dessert included either a small bowl of yogurt with seeds or icecream on a layer of honey (instead of the promised 'honey-icecream'). I liked the special beers, price does vary up to 4,75 euros. The service was mostly fine!
This place is run very badly. We realized after stepping out that we were charged much more than due. The host is oppressively nagging, and trying to make you buy the most expensive items, make you order more... ridiculous. The constant feeling is to be cheated upon, even before the bill. Well, food wasn't bad, but who cares, under these circumstances? They need someone in the restaurants that serves dinner without much fooling around and sucking on people's pokets. Besides, promoting their own restaurant through self-reviews... come on! (are there any real ones, one wonders?) Never again for sure.

Piece of Africa in Amsterdam
Curious for the African kitchen? Be surprised by the beautiful and varied flavours that Serengeti has to offer. Choose between great meet and vegetarian dishes and ask the service for their matching wines. Try the African beers from a "kalebas" or the tasteful South-African ones. Visit Africa in Serengeti!
