Just arrived in the city center and wanted to eat dinner. There are so many restaurants around and we wanted vegetarian food. Discovered this one, big menu, different drinks, friendly service and delicious food, tastes homemade ;-) Where lucky to get a table! Would come again.

We tried their mix grill kebabs with an accompaniment of breads (naan), daal (lentil) and rice. The mutton rogan josh was tender and specially prepared as we didn't want too spicy food that night and... More

Went there for lunch, because outside it said they had a vegetarian lunch. Once inside I was told it was not available. I had a paneer dish with rice. Had to ask for more rice because it was really a small portion. The dish was ok, rice was dry and expensive. won 't go back there.

3 visits over one year confirms this restaurant provides excellent food and service at reasonable prices. For authentic Iandian food this is the best place in Amsterdam. Very highly recommended (some years ago I worked and lived in Nepal and India for 32 months, so I believe that I am qualified to judge what is good food). If you want... More

For the last decade this has been the curry house in Amsterdam. And I've just checked and it still is. Lovely!

I am a huge fan of Indian curry, and this place did not disappoint. The service was quick, the food was a good price and the portions were large! We couldn't finish everything, but we wanted to cause it was just that good. A huge bonus is that everything on the menu was gluten free barring the obvious naans and... More
