Had dinner, Food definitely above average. But the place felt like a sweltering furnace. No AC not turned on. And a grumpy host to boot I think the place finds a lot of guests because of the food and hence they dont want to be...More

Average meal, quite pricey. We were a party of 6 and worryingly the only ones in the restaurant on a Saturday evening. My meal was actually quite tasty, but 3 of my colleagues did not enjoy theirs.

A lovely restaurant that serves very homely food. Nice and spicy as requested. Don't be fooled by the alley way entrance as the restaurant is definitely somewhere to visit. I recommend the samosas! It is also very reasonably priced.

Very expensive must say because the servings are small. I know Indian food has small servings, but these were too small for even two people sharing a few dishes. The service was okay, not spectacular. They do not like filling water glasses, and I think...More

Thanks for your positive response.

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

To be honest I don't think they carry gluten free dishes standard. At least I don't see, like you, a mention of gluten free options anywhere in the menu. All I can offer you here is the age old response: ask them to take... More

If Indian food is on the top of your head, Gandhi Restaurant proud to present authentic Indian food in the heart of Amsterdam that is Centrum district. Whether you are North Indian or South Indian, the enrichment of traditional flavours introduced in Gandhi restaurant’s delicious food delivers a satisfying thought on your mind. Our menu strictly includes Indian dishes brewed with fresh and healthy vegetables along with comfortable ambience. However with outstanding dining options of lunch and dinner for vegetarians, our menu also includes a creative twist for non-vegetarian food lovers! Chicken tikka tandoori, King prawn korma, sheekh kabab and boti kabab are some of the dishes that stand out. Gandhi Restaurant, the place you should definitely not miss out on is 7 minutes walking from the Amsterdam Central Station.!
