This place is a real gem. If you are looking for a good Indian meal in Amsterdam, this is the place to go. All the vegetarian dishes are so delicious, I always have trouble deciding what to get. Usually our order includes at least a matter paneer and aloo gobhi - fantastic flavours! The fresh-from-the-oven naans are just perfect. They... More

The best Indian restaurant ever. I've tried a lot of Indian restaurants, even in Asia, but this is the best. The people who work there are the most friendliest. The Butter CHicken is a YES YES YES!! :)

Lovely food and good atmosphere. They seemed a bit busy, and the restaurant was full, and it was a queue outside. The service could be better. They diddn´t notice I spilled half a coke on the table, and didn´t offer a cloth or paper. I could have asked for it, but they usually notice things like that in other restaurants.... More

I am an Indian and so when I say the food is good you can take it from me az I know what good indian food tastes like. This place has stuck to their values with various spice ratings and not dimmed it to European palates. Very good though small in size.
