Great food, fantastic service, good wine list too. The Tandoori dishes are all excellent, but the lamb and the tandoori chicken stand out. We were celebrating my son's birthday and they spontaneously brought out a special dessert with Birthday candles... THAT is service!

This was an OK restaurant, but nothing more. I was recommended chicken, but went for a lamb rogan josh. The meat quality was rather poor. For dessert I had home-made ice-cream and rice pudding, but this was not too impressive either. Service was nothing special. There were not many guests there, but it was maybe a bit to early in...

Close to Centraal station. Small portions. Quite pricey. Not the best indian food we had in Amsterdam (see Taj Majal). The service (man with beard) was OK. Seemed to focus on tourists mainly. Tried once, we would not go again.

Food is ok, at foreign Indian standards. Good choice of vegetarian plates. The place is quite noisy if full. Good choice if staying in one of the big hotels nearby.
