It is hard to find authentic Indian food in the Netherlands and Shanty is one of the best in the region. My favourite Indian restaurant in the Netherlands and always looking forward to a visit.

I had been to this restuarant 2 years ago, so decided to go again. Food is nice. Service is excellent. I tried another Indian restuarant whilst in Hilversum, and out of the 2, the other one is better.

I'm very happy I took the chance at this Indian restaurant after a few other disappointments in Hilversum. It has become my number one take out restaurant. The food is properly cooked and flavored. The restaurant is small but cozy and worth it.
