Good authentic turkish food,great for everybody that loves barbecued meat and small plates to share. They had a small confusion with the booking,so we had to be re-seated while already eating,but the staff really made an effort to make up for it.would definitely go back for the food

A great combination of a nice ambiance, pleasant setting and good food. The restaurant was flexible and accommodating to our needs (as a finicky group of 13). Food was well prepared, well-spiced, and well presented.

the food is below average, much too expensive for the quality. The kitchen does not look clean. One toilet no light the other one blocked. The restaurant does not live up to the expectations, it feels like it is not a real hospitality business

The quality of the food was medium.
The way to take the order was bad,
The toilets was very dirty.
The ventilation was good.
The service was very bad.
Very unprofitional team.
In general we never go back or send our frinds or relations to this restaurant.

Food was scrumptious and presentation of the main dishes was outstanding.Wine was also good.I went there with a Turkish friend who did the talking&ordering but waiters&waitresses were all amicable and dedicated..The manager came to us many times to check on our table and subsequently make sure all was going smoothly.The only negative point for me was the desert.There was not much choice and Bahklava on the desert card is too much of a classic that u can buy in any Turkish store or bakery. Management should opt for more variety in terms of desert choice.On a closing note I would highly recommend this restaurant

The food I have to say is very good, especially as a Turkish person, it can get difficuly to find good quality 'turkish food' in Amsterdam center. However the service is absolutely untraditional and not customer friendly. For example, we have been served tap water with turkish raki, and when we asked a refill the waitress refused to give us tap water because 'her manager does not allow to serve tap water without raki or wine'. This is very cheap in such a restaurant given that it is a good quality place, and not eco friendly at all. Moreover, turkish tea is also charged in a turkish 'kebab' restaurant, again out of culture and an example of profit seeking mentality. Therefore, I advise the restaurant as a one time experiencw but not as your 'traditional turkish restaurant'.

The food is amazing. The service is great and the employees are so friendly and welcoming.
The décor is also nice and cozy. I really like eating at Ali Ocakbasi from time to time. I'd strongly recommend all people who would like to taste real Turkish food with real Turkish hospitality.

They reserved a very bad long (along a window) table. We were 4 friends lookingfor a nice evening of catching up, so the idea of sitting all in one row was not nice for us. At the end we decided to not eat there anymore. The staff was not very helpful and just told us to make a choice (leave or stay).... Not the night we hoped for. I have been there before and the food is great! Its just sad how unfriendly the staff was.

It was a very busy night. Drinks orders arrived late, without acknowledgement or apology by the waitress and the ice cream had run out by the time dessert came around . It was also extremely hot and humid inside, but it is unusual weather. Many other places in Amsterdam have far worse service, without air-conditioning etc. but I had expected better.
