Ah ok - I did find you have to provide it a "region bias" (a centre point Lat Lon to favour results so that it favours results near point rather than elsewhere) - I was using it for a project in Amsterdam and when I didn't provide a region bias and searched for "straat" i was getting results in South Africa first, but as soon as I set the centre point as Amsterdam Central, it worked as expected. Nice article though, it's always good to see comparisons and other competitors than the "big 4" tech companies :)
