Happened upon the Bazar restaurant in Den Pijp (a hip area just south of central Amsterdam) - we could see it was good because it was packed. But after a beer they managed to slot us in and we had a shared mixed platter to start and mains of the lamb casserole and a lamb kofta. Both excellent and delivered rapidly and with a smile. Even though the place was packed to the rafters (there's and upstairs that was full) there was no problem with the service or the food. They are certainly doing something right!
I shall return!
