I come here often for the yummy Paneer Makhani. Cozy place close to the Amsterdam Central Station. Friendly owners/staff.

Went with some friends. The food is terrible. The restaurant staff is very rude. Prices are very expensive and they overcharged us with some food items that we did not order. Overall a terrible experience.

As locals we always feel welcome. Great Indian dishes. Service with a smile. Authentic. Tandoori chicken, curries, good selection of starters.

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.More

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.More

We were recommended to visit this restaurant by a local barman and weren’t disappointed. A fantastic, tasty curry, friendly atmosphere and surprisingly good price. Well worth a visit!
