This is a lovely little Indian restaurant with a great menu and everything tastes amazing! They have a little tasting menu option. I did that and wasn't disappointed with anything I had.

My husband is indian and we went there on tuesday, the day he can eat only vegetables. He ordered a vegetarian kofta, too much sweet for an indian according to the waitress, the food he had wasn't really a kofta but it was good. I ate a tandoori chicken, a little bit too much spicy for me but very good!... More

I also think it's not ok... More

We looked for a different experience in Amsterdam and stumbled upon Shiva. The staff was great and helped us choose from the menu. The dishes seemed small at first, but we couldn't finish them! The food was great and we were full before the deserts came. We would recommend Shiva to any traveler.

Authentic Indian food and average priced. Good servings and the tandoori chicken wings are a must! After travelling for a few weeks I was missing Indian food haha. Couldn't have been better!
