By the end of this shop, the place was FILTHY. THe walls hadnt been cleaned in years, the toilets weren't much better and the place was just run-down.
Menu: 1
Unlike the menu from years ago this was very subpar.
Summary
Used to be great but by the end of the run it was a shit hole. Now it will be a new coffeeshop with new owners so I will check it out next trip.
Service: 1
THe chick behind the bar was totally out of it

I loved the decor when it first opened in the 90s. i was there when they were finishing the murals; but lately i must say the decor has been needing a retouch. the music is brilliant. i even named my radio station after it: http://members.soundclick.com/station/189379
Menu: 8
a small menu but the weed and hash are very powerful with bundles of flavour, which will satisfy the pallette of the smoking conneseuir. get the orange bud, crystal lady and the shiva. mmm mmm good!!
Summary
It's my favourite coffeeshop in the whole city, like a home away from home. it's the place to smoke up the last bits of your weed before getting back to the airport/bus for the long schlepp home.
Service: 8
it depends on who is working. the lady in the day shift is quiet and distant but she won't badger you to keep buying drinks like in some other c/s. they are very friendly and i once even met a wonderful dutch lady there whom i'll never forget!

The place is not so big, the atmosphere is very friendly (thx to the staff too), and the paintings on the wall are really... how to say?... superb!!! That's a trip men, GO TRY IT
Menu: 9
Not so extended, but worth to try! My favourite are Bubblegum and Nepalese, but they have also good offers like Afghaan and Crystal Lady...
Summary
In few words: A MUST!!! Go there, relax, ask for Bubblegum or Crystal Lady, sit on one of their little sofa and loose yourself in their murales, helped by the music...
Service: 10
This summer there were two girls.. The one in the afternoon was very pleasant, talkative, nice and pretty... What do u want more? :D

the atmosphere is really good cause it's not that big from the inside.. you always interact with people cause there sittin right next to you... and the decor is MUY BIEN cause it's a bigass wallpainting (really trippy) and it's makes you even more stoned..
Menu: 8
the menu isn't that large , but (yes there is a BUT) they have some nice options.... myself i'm a Crystal lady , northern lights man... never buy the hash though cause it's too much work to roll it..........but go try out the crystal or the northern lights
Summary
hmmmm..they could use some new Cd's cause i'm tired of hearing the same shit everyday (yes i sit there almost everyday)....but except that HEY just go there and you'lle see what i'm talkin about...
Service: 10
of all the subjects you can rate here , this one get's a 10!! cause the girls that work there are really nice...if you're alone (by some reason) , you can always sit at the counter and talk with the ladie that's workin there.....Good he??

Great decor, they got trippy paintings on the walls and there is a huge tree near the bar. The tables are really spacing and they got candles with nice colours in them.
Menu: 10
Not a great variety, but I looove the Crystal Lady!!! I almost smoke it every day at the Global. I also like the Shiva and Northern Lights.
Summary
If you want to meet us, come to the Global.
Service: 10
The girls who work there are really nice!!! Congrets Monique!

Summary
One must pay a visit to this coffee shop, it has a unique feel to it.

It goes with out saying, you will have a unique ambient experience. Since, 1994 I have always placed Golbal Chillage on the top of my list. Nevertheless, You will find an international progressive crowd coupled with local artists which makes it very unique.
Menu: 10
Try the high end hashish, you will not be dissaponted the the selection and quality you will find. Again the staff is quite savy, so for you Amsterdam Novices'.
Summary
The music has always been cutting edge ambient & trance for the ultimate relaxing Amsterdam exprience. DON'T MISS OUT! ** BRING BACK THE PILLOWS!
Service: 10
For the past 8 years, I have found the the staff have always been friendly and helpful. They are quite keen with their cannabis and hashish knowledge; moreover, they make an aweome cappachino, that will take the "CHILL" out a cool winter's day.

This coffee shop I went to the most caus' the vibe is "chill." However not once did I see the turn tables beeing put to use. A DJ would be an excellent addition to the energy and also I think will make people stay. I know people who go there for the menu but don't hang out. A DJ is a must.
Menu: 6
I f you go to Global Chillage to buy you will almost always find something you like even though they don't have THAT big of a selection.
Summary
Service: 8
you'll usually get a smile in here.

This place is narrow!!!! When I went in there were these VERY Indian tunes, the picture at the wall was a LITTLE scary and everybody around was TOTALLY wasted. It was my first night in Amsterdam ever in the FIRST coffeeshop of my life.
Menu: 8
We asked for something mild (our first night in Amsterdam in our first coffeeshop, we didn't know what to expect....) We were given Shiva, coughed our lungs out, went outside to get a little air, got lost....
Summary
The place was nice, it was just so much so soon. I was confused.
Service: 9
The waitress was nice.

Great chillout place! A bit small. With it's very impressive wall to wall 3d-ish highly detailed surround fantasy forrest wall paintings, its obviuos why there's a "no Photos"sign on the door! The benches have little rolling tables attached to 'em
Menu: 7
An OK Menu, go for the weeds!
Summary
I like this place! I come here to team up with my friends before we go out to party, or after i've been "shopping" (see "service") not that i'm much of a DJ ;) Rumour has it that the wall paintings are made by a famous graffitty artist who sometimes comes in to work on this masterpiece. Check it out every now and then to spot any changes ...
Service: 9
Friendly Service! When you've been strollin' thru A'dam with your Record-bag and bought some new tunes, be extra nice to the waitress and she just might play some of your new records, when she's not too busy and there is no DJ, that is!

You feel as if your step into a Tolkin novel, very cool wall painting and a sort of 'new age' hippy feel.
Menu: 8
A large selection but I've had some, iffy hashish from here.
Summary
If your cool, hip & trendy and wish to meet like minded people a coffeeshop for you.
Service: 7
Some times with a smile other times with attatude maybe I'm not hip enough!!!
