Best Indian Restaurant..!!!

I have been living in Amsterdam for almost 5 years now. Being a foodie, I have eaten almost in every restaurant in the city. When it comes to Indian food, we Indians are really pretty clear about the taste and the spices. We sub-consciously end up comparing it to the food we get back in India... read more

We enjoyed a wonder dinner here. Delicious food, nice casual atmosphere in a lovely neighborhood. The waiter was adequate - it was a busy night.

We went to a number of Indonesian and Indian places while on vacation in Amsterdam, and this was one of the best. The food was very spicy and there was great attention to detail in the food preparation and service. We ordered an appetizer, one chicken curried dish and two vegetable dishes. We were pleased with everything.

Very nice Indian food ... We had Tandoori paneer and vegetarian set meal. Rice (with cumin) was good too; but naan was a little disappointing.

For v example less oily, not spicy, more spicy. And these are made with love. Highly recommended for people who love Indian food. Weekdays visit ate better if you want... More

Why this restaurant receives rave reviews is a mystery. Good Indian food isn't oily. Here the dishes are 20% oil.

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
