Respond to Review of TerraZen Centre
Review: An over-priced vegan restaurant in the centre of Amsterdam. On first impressions it was quite ramshackle - not that we're strangers to ramshackle, but for the prices charged you'd expect better than a piece of wood on cinder blocks next to a random jumble of computer equipment for a seat. It was nowhere near as nice as the photos on Happy Cow make it seem. We ordered what was meant to be a bean stew, but it was just a bean salad really, with the strange addition of three slices of bread with peanut butter on them. We also had a faux-chicken burger, which was chicken-style pieces rather than a burger. It was okay, but not really filling - especially for the price. (Sorry to keep going on about the price, but it really was expensive for what we got. The prices increase by 10% in the evening, too. We were both still hungry when we left.) The couple who run the place were very friendly and helpful, and they're obviously pointing in the right direction, so I wish I could give it more than a two cow rating. Maybe we caught it on a bad night, but to us it felt like it definitely needs improvement, and even if you're a vegan in Amsterdam.
