Great Indian food and great take out service!

This was a great find in Amsterdam. I called them and spoke to the person asking them to suggest a few items. We finally settled on Tandoori chicken , which came with rice, naan and aloo matar and shahi paneer. Portion size was more than enough for two people and the dishes were well cooked and... read more

I found the restaurant by luck. All the restaurants in the more crowded areas were full. So I gave it a try. Had a great curry (with the spinach) and I got my very best mango lassi ever. It was such creamy. Wonderful. My curry was not marked as hot. Some of the meals are. But mine was hot and... More

Visited after a long day tour in Amsterdam. The ambience is good and the people are very friendly. Food is excellent ( we had chicken tikka ,chicken rogon josh and roti&rice) I had been to many Indian restaurants abroad but this one is the closest to real Indian food. I would recommend to visit once if you like real Indian... More

Situated on one of the main streets in Amsterdam, we visited here early one Saturday evening. It got busy quite quickly so this place is evidently popular with the locals. Despite being busy we were served pretty quickly so no complaints about the service. I went for the lamb bhuna and ginger naan bread which I enjoyed very much. It's... More

Was just like in India :-) If you can eat spicy food, you will like the place! Make sure to order the Mango Lacy! Nice service.

The restaurant is clean, friendly. The food was excellent. We ordered thali. A bit spicy but that is normal. The lentil soup was really good. Well situated close to the train station.

It can be hard to get a table; but when you do you'll know why. The food here is exceptional. It's head and shoulders above any other Indian in Amsterdam and the prices are really good too. When I am next time in Amsterdam i will go back for sure!
