This is not a posh restaurant but one that looks like a family run business. Service was friendly and very helpful with the menu and beer selection to match the dishes. Seating was good and there was plenty of room. The dishes were excellent and came in good time. We enjoyed the meal and found it very filling. Nice atmosphere set up like an Indian establishment back in India. 20 min walk from Centraal and the Hilton.

Set in the most beautiful location and perfect from start to finish! Came here with my daughter a couple days ago and the moment we walked in we were greeted with a warm, friendly welcome and good vibes. We ordered some drinks while we perused the menu and they came really quickly even though the restaurant was pretty busy. Our food was also served to us in good time and was absolutely delicious, especially the freshly baked naan bread - WOW. Unreal. There were items we wanted that were not listed on the menu…. Problem? No way. They made it for us anyway! Nothing was too much trouble. The lady who clearly owned the restaurant was floating about the place checking on and talking to customers, she was really lovely and we appreciated her effort. When we inevitably return to Amsterdam this will be the first place we eat! 5* all round.

Delicious food, the staff was also friendly and fast to serve the meals. Glad we stopped by for dinner. There were also a few Indian families eating there which is always an amazing sign for authentic food. The only problem I personally seamed to have was the air-conditioning, but that might have just been me. Overall I think that its an amazing underrated Indian restaurant in Amsterdam that is worthy of a visit!

Ate here on a recent trip to Amsterdam. Even by Amsterdam standards the meal was expensive, coming in at €76 for 2 x mains and poppadoms. My king prawn jalfrezi (€21.50 🙄)was a bit too oily and my wife's tikka masala wasn't to her liking at all. We'll definitely give this place a miss on our next visit to Amsterdam.

I have to say being an Indian, this restaurant doesn't serve authenticate indian food. The taste was absolutely bad. We requested for Tandoori Chickena dnd it was pathetic. No taste at all. I ordered pickle which is always served with Indian food and they charged me EUR 3.50 which is a complete loot of money. The food wasnt tasty and expensive . I do not recommend anyone having this food! And guess what the plate wasnt clean as well! A BIG no for all out there!

I wished I read the reviews before going to this restaurant. I could cook better food than what we got here . The food was tasteless - a difficult thing for Indian food. The service while warm and friendly was inefficient - they got our order wrong and the waiter couldn't understand English well. The saag paneer was dry, the vegetable koofta was a ball of mush, the lamb rogan josh was tasteless.

Had the table for 15 booked a few days in advance. When we arrived we were told that someone had called the day before and cancelled. I can promise that this did not happen. However we did notice a table for 15 laid out, with 13 people sat there. Food was mostly very good, but two people in the group became quite unwell that evening (one of which had a vegetarian meal, so not exactly sure how that was done). Even the starters took a while. Overall, pretty poor management coupled with a couple of unwell customers in our group made the experience pretty poor.

Myself and partner visited, we were very friendly and polite but they clearly did not want to serve us. Our server was incredibly rude, did not talk to us at all apart from to ask what we want. when we asked another lady for our bill she just stared at us and walked off, so we asked another waiter and he just shouted to our server in Indian to get us the bill, no yes or anything. Not one person smiled. When we left we said thank you it was delicious and they just turned around. To me it felt as it it was as we were the only English in a predominantly Dutch environment as they were fine with everyone else. We did not tip as never ever received such poor service. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND

Probably the best Indian restaurant in Amsterdam and elsewhere. The food was erved by attentive hosts. I like tandoori dishes and this restaurant did not disappoint. My husband had a lamb dish he declared to be the most tender he's ever had. He raved about its taste and appreciated that the spice level was to his liking: not too extreme. Walkable from Doubletree Central Hotel. Many menu choices and everything appeared to befeshly cooked, not warmer over.

I wanted to invite the chef home to show how to cook a prawn masala. Awful the food was. The prawns were not succulent enough. Too much oil. And the worst was the toilets in the ground floor were stinking.

Superb food. The owner couple of the restaurant adds their personal touch in food. Excellent tasty food particularly for vegetarians. We had dinner on 1st and 2nd April 2024 and intend to have it on 3rd and 4th April also. Hardly 5 minutes walk from Amsterdam Centraal front gate.

We were on vacation and the hotel concierge recommended this restaurant to us. We were group of Americans and Australians. Service was good and quick. Food was fresh. The waiter told us the vindaloo was hot and he wasn't kidding. All in all a nice experience.

One of the best Indian restaurants I've visited for a while. All of the food was tasty. Slightly hotter than average compared to UK restaurants, and all the better for it. Definitely recommend if looking for curry in Amsterdam.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
