The only memory this place serves for me is not to return. I was presented with a dirty plate and when I requested a new one, the waiter proceeded to argue it was clean. When he eventually fetched me a replacement he decided to run his fingers down the plate to demonstrate how squeaky clean this one was. The same... More

The BF and I came across this place after we decided we really wanted Indian food and we agreed we would eat in the first Indian restaurant we found. AM I glad it was this one. Although it was very busy, we were quickly seated and our orders taken. We didn't have to wait long for our meals and although... More

Placed nearby the city centre but not overran by tourists this gem revealed one of my best Indian meals I have eaten. Directly from the cold Amsterdam to the hot India and placed in a cozy room with lots of pillows, Indian pillows and a sound carpet consisting of mostly Indian music played at a decent level. I ordered papadums... More

It seems the tactic of this restaurant is to not worry about the flavour and instead make the curriesover spicy. Easily the worst prawn puri I have ever had. And I am not a fussy person. It is probably the only prawn puri I have ever not liked. The waiting staff were rude to me when I asked for a... More
