As we had left the "oh no, not spicy food"-kids at home we decided to go for Indian during otur Amsterdam weekend. The restaurant is tiny (It can only serve about 14 people at a time) and at least on weekends very busy so a table reservation is recommended. The food is very good (and spicy!) and I also loved...

This tiny restaurant is clearly a family affair. That brings idiosyncrasies of service (who's in charge of what?) but also a genuinely caring attitude. In a tandoori restaurant I figured that the tandoori platter would cover the major attractions and it was tantalizing; even the shrimp were juicy despite the high heat of the oven. 28 euros bought two courses...

Good and authentic indian food, reasonably priced :) It's a family run restaurant with great atmosphere. I found it by accident while strolling around Amsterdam.

The prawns, the rice, the beer, the cook, the tea, all were Indian and the food at least was deliciously spicy. Well located, nice staff, golden light in the sunset. Very satisfied.

I went here with a group of coworkers about seven of us. The place was a bit small but we sat outside. The food is simply the best Indian food ever and the garlic naan is the best naan I have ever had. I highly recommend this place!! Courteous and nice staff and family run place. I love it!

We missed our regular Indian food back home. For us, we ordered 1-main course with lamb, comes with rice & salad. And 2 sides- chicken & eggplant and a plain naan. Delicious and to finish off with a mango lassi.

We visited and had a lovely meal. The Indian cuisine was very good. Spice levels balanced, tremendous papa dams made of lentils and cumin seeds. Each dish was tasty,enjoyable and authentic. Service was hilarious. Owner was on his own in the restaurant. We think his sister was cooking and she did a great job. Owner took orders and advised kitchen... More
