For those who are not familiar with Suriname, it is a meltpot of cultures, mainly coming from India (Hindu), Indonesia (Java), Creol (Africa), Jews, Chinees and Dutch.
My wife is from Suriname and we went here on a local tip, as the restaurant had won an award. To win this as a "themed" restaurant is not so easy, so expectations were high.
We were a party of 4 and ordered different dishes.
The startes we took were excellent of very fine quality. Perfect Sato soup, Peanut soup and Barra. Just as good as in Suriname if not better. These were the highs.
Where it went down hill was on the main courses.
3 of us ordered Indonesian style Food and this was a very very big mistake.
The Food was just poor, bland, barely any flavour and absolutely not a reference to the excellent kitchen of Indonesia or Suriname.
How is it possible that a kitchen goes from such high to such lows? No idea why it scores such high Reviews, I think there is a lot to do to deserve those.
My daughter however ordered the roti chicken (never go for the fillet, always go for the meat of the bone).
The roti was another high. It was one of the best ever eaten. super tasty, excellent flavor and a good portion of pepper. What a treat!!!!!
As we were so dissapointed with many of our mains, we skipped the dessert menu.
High ups and very low downs in this restaurant.
It is obvious that the cook has a hindustanian back ground. I strongly recommend to go here, but only order the hindustanian menu items, roti's are excellent.
Stay away from anything else it is very dissapointing.
Service was OK, but nothing special to write home about.
For the quality of food and service the individual menu items are too expensive, especially in a place like Assen.
It may surpise you, but we would go again, on that occassion we would only order roti's. That would be the last change though to recouperate.
