I've been trying many Turkish restaurants in Amsterdam and Saray really is one of my favourite. The food is delicious and the service nice and warm. The owner is very friendly and caring with guests, make sure you feel welcome and giving you nice gesture as fruits or liquors after dinner! A very very nice place :)

We stubbled upon Saray while looking around the neighborhood for a place to eat after going to the Heineken Experience. The people were so friendly and welcoming that we made a reservation for after our HE. When we arrived back the restaurant was in full swing and the smells were amazing! Every dish we had was delicious! The service was perfect, and everyone was very helpful. We were so happy to have found such a wonderful place as we live in Monterey, California and there are no Turkish restaurants in our area! This would be a great place to go with a group because there are so many choices and as a party of two we were limited on how many different dishes we could try as we had no way to deal with leftovers. The humus was amazing, and I am still dreaming about the pita! After our dinner the owner sat down and played a musical instrument that we are not sure quite what it was, (Guitar type) So much fun to listen too. If you are in the area this would be a great choice or if you are looking for a great ethnic meal this again is a great choice. The prices are extremely reasonable for such a delightful treat! A not to be missed!

We stompelden op Saray terwijl we rondkeken in de buurt voor een plek om te eten na de Heineken Experience. De mensen waren zo vriendelijk en gastvrij dat we een reservering voor onze HE gemaakt hadden. Toen we terugkwamen was het restaurant in volle gang en de geuren waren geweldig! Elk gerecht dat we hadden was heerlijk! De service was perfect, en iedereen was erg behulpzaam. We waren zo blij om zo'n prachtige plek te hebben gevonden als we in Monterey wonen en er zijn geen Turkse restaurants in ons gebied! Dit zou een geweldige plek zijn om met een groep te gaan omdat er zoveel keuzes zijn en als een groep van twee we beperkt waren tot hoeveel verschillende gerechten we konden proberen omdat we geen manier hadden om te gaan met restjes. De humus was geweldig en ik droom nog steeds over de pita! Na ons diner ging de eigenaar zitten en speelde een muziekinstrument dat we het niet zeker weten wat het was, (gitaar type), ook leuk om te luisteren. Als u in de omgeving bent, zou dit een goede keuze zijn of als u op zoek bent naar een goede etnische maaltijd, is dit weer een goede keuze. De prijzen zijn zeer redelijk voor zo'n heerlijk traktatie! Een niet te missen!
