Als je eens wilt ervaren wat de Ottomaanse keuken te bieden heeft, schuif dan eens aan bij Saffraan aan de Amstel in Amsterdam Oost. Duygu runt dit restaurant al zo’n 15 jaar. Voorheen met een Italiaanse kaart, maar sinds vorig jaar is dit de plek om te zijn als je je een avond wilt laten onderdompelen in Syrische, Libanese en Turkse smaken. Denk huisgemaakt hummus, mezzes, gemarineerd lamsvlees van de houtskoolbarbecue en meer van dat soort lekkers. Uiteraard hebben ze een kaart, maar eigenlijk kiezen de meeste gasten voor gerechten buiten de kaart om. En Duygu vindt het heerlijk om zijn gasten te verrassen en te verwennen met zijn bijzondere gerechten. Om zijn vlees te marineren gebruikt hij alleen de beste kruiden, deze brengt zijn vader speciaal voor hem mee uit Turkije. Want op deze manier heeft hij de beschikking tot de meest pure kruiden die door de zon zijn gedroogd en met de hand zijn gemalen.

The service was amazing! The host was very welcoming and knew all details about the food that was on the menu; the staff was super friendly without being intrusive. I never write reviews but couldnt let this one pass.
The food was excellent too!

Nice decoration, friendly personnel, good food. Just the smell was a bit heavy but they said they are aware and working on that to have better air-vacuuming.

Really welcoming small restaurant with a big selection of different dishes and a variety of specials of the day. The service was really great and we will definitely come again. Just the waiting time could be a bit shorter but it was a busy Friday evening.

Great restaurant! Warm welcome by the owner and the owner is open to your food preferences in constructing a dish: the menu is more like a guideline and not a must. Resulting in a delicious plate of food. Ambiance is friendly and warm. Inside of the restaurant is very stylish and modern. Definitely going again!

Romantic atmosphere, with beautiful low lighting and ambient music. Had the cigana kofte for starter, they were simply delicious, juicy and full of taste. The guvec I had for main did not really leave up to my expectations. But I finished off with baklava for dessert, and that was one more highlight in the dinner. Amazing baklava with right amount of syrup and served with ice cream! Overally, I d strongly recommended, but advice to order one of the grilled meats for main :)

We were looking for a place not too fare from the Volkshotel. We stumbled upon this renewed Italian/Turkish restaurant. The owner had an Italian restaurant in the same spot for years but he was ready for a new concept. The place looks very nice, nice furniture. It comes with a great sunny terrace where you can enjoy an enormous crowd of people biking to and from work. The owner greets you with a lot of joy and truly wants to make your evening something special. We were with 4 adults and 2 kids and he customized all our needs. The anti pasti with Turkish influences was delicious and plentiful, as were the mains dishes. Maybe a bit too plentiful. It's perfectly okay to make the portions a bit smaller. Anyhow we had a great evening.

Nice medium sized restaurant on the Amstel which is far enough from the main roads of the city so that you have a nice atmosphere. You can also see the chef at work if you're so inclined.
