in Haarlem. Found this great wee gem while exploring the city. Lovely decor and a nice atmosphere. We were quickly shown to a table. On the table there was a bottle of wine which the resturant recommends with your meal... We skipped this in favor of beers, with various daft and bottle beers available. The menu was interesting in that... More

I had the chicken masala. The server told me it would be somewhat sweet and mild. It was. It was very good. The service was good. It was a very good experience. It is not a typical Indian restaurant.

This is a repeat visit to this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. It's got a twist on the British Indian dishes - I agree with other reviews, if you want your standard British Indian meals then I would recommend that you go elsewhere. However if you're up to trying a new age version of your Indian dish then this is... More

Four of us, two vegetarian, had an excellent experience. Friendly, courteous staff (the manager came out to speak to us, as he did to everyone I guess) but it makes such a differenence when staff smile and laugh and take time to check you're ordering what's right for you. Not expensive, but really tasty and well presented food. No rush... More

Dishes either too sweet or to spicy . If you have some good taste just run away. If you enjoy anything spicy you can go and eat ;)

I ordered Indian dishes like korma and massala and I received sweet fruity puddings with vegetables, no rasins no coconut no butter. Other dish with chicken was just spicy and very bitter without any other flavour. Mango lassie and nan were very nice although conning here for yogurt and bread would be idiotic. I will never ever recommend this restaurant... More

India Corner offered a pretence-free dining experience with exceptional food. Rather than a greasy and over-spiced traditional European interpretation of Indian food, India Corner offers elegant cuisine with Indian spicing - truly sublime. The atmosphere was friendly. If you're ever in Haarlem it really is a must visit!

If you are looking for your bog-standard "British Indian Restaurant" experience steer well clear of this space. This is about as far from the standard BIR experience as you can get. Begin with the decor: light, bright simple style. It's more Zen than Vishnu. The quality of service also deserves a shout out. In a nation not exactly renowned as... More

6 of us for dinner. Table was ready when we walked in. Very knowledgeable and nice server. She had worked there for 5 years. It earned each of the 5 stars. Easy recommendation. ..GO!!
