Wonderful food and the best service!

We truly enjoyed our meal and every single staff member for our last dinner in Amsterdam! This restaurant came highly recommended and we are so glad we went!

As a part of our vacation, we visited this restaurant for dinner. The service we received is very poor and the captain/waiter is arguing on the quantity we ordered and saying that it is not sufficient. He is not considering the requirement of our team. and putting a lot of excuses like , if we order later it will take... More

We eat often at Indian reataurants, both at home and on trips. This restaurant is surely one of the better ones. The food is spicy and tasteful. Highly recommended! There are two Koh-I-Noor's in Amsterdam, both are excellent.

This place was packed on a Monday night and we were lucky to snag a table without reservations. We had the chicken tikka masala and lamb vindaloo (ordered extra hot). The waiter promised it would be the hottest thing we had in Amsterdam and it surely was. Everything was delicious. Nice waiters, smiling even though you could tell they were... More

A great restaurant. We very much enjoyed our trip here. Food was well cooked and served by very friendly staff (one even drew us a diagram of a tamarind plant)! I was particularly impressed that they accommodated my aversion to coriander! From the outside this is nothing special, and if it weren't for tripadvisor reviews, then we wouldn't have event...

I knew I had found a great gem of a restaurant when I saw the owner and servers greeting regular customers by their names. My chicken tikka was wonderful; if you are spice sensitive you may want to ask for you items mild. I forgot to ask and it was a little hot for me, but still good (I love... More

We are in Amsterdam for the first time, eagerly visiting the various monuments, publicly accessible places of interest, palaces etc. Amsterdam is an awesome city and the people are friendly, outgoing and seem like a happy lot. All of our experiences in the city have been excellent, except for this one atrociously obnoxious restaurant that treated us extremely rudely with... More

The ambiance and the quality of the food. Most Indian restaurents in the UK are moving away from traditional interiors and going for a more contempary design. Koh-i-noor is a very traditional restaurent. I had the spicy lamb chilli massalla with a mushroom bahjee and it was very nice and tasty. Spicy enough to be hot but not so hot... More
