We wanted a nice, fresh meal, and went to Dabka. We had Tabbouleh, Hummous, and Baba Ganoush for starters. All were delicious. They came with homemade whole wheat pita, which was great. There were two of us, and that could have been dinner! The Baba Ganoush is chunky, not homogenized, and really great. We shared a mixed grill plate, which came with meats, a salad, and fries or rice. We chose fries, which were good, but I would get the rice next time because that looked delicious. Too much food for two, but yummy!

Had a food choice of mezze: hummus not too good, good baba ganoush, great fresh bred, fatoush or salads.

Mains are better: chicken kebab, lamb.

All is very "Dutch", lacking the freshness and spiciness of the Middle East.

Service not concentrated and we were left few time without water.

Good place to eat with friends/casual business.

My partner and I stopped here for dinner on our last night in Amsterdam. It was pouring rain and this place was right around the corner from our hotel. Middle Eastern food is usually good for vegans, but it was great that out waitress could point out every vegan item on the menu and make recommendations. Everything she steered us toward was great. Highly recommended!
