Either the reviews are fake or most of the reviewers have little clue what Indian food tastes like. Lazy cooking using cheap ingredients. I wouldn't be surprised if the sauce came from a packet. The lamb dopiaza tasted more like British style gravy than a fragrant, aromatic Indian dish. Tourist trap and easy to fool inexperienced Dutch palates. If this... More

Compared to other Indian restaurants I've been to, the food was really light and fresh. Service was extremely friendly and helfpul. I love spicy food so I found spices somehow lacking in the menu, but if you like mild food this is definitely an Indian restaurant you can go to.

Very accommodating restaurant with lovely staff. I dined alone but the food was great. Non meat eaters have plenty of choices. Very pretty room. Nine streets neighborhood. Would love to bring my parents here.

This small cozy restaurant appears to cater to a local Dutch clientele, but the food is good, the service pleasant and I found it a great place to eat alone with a book and some wine.

After dining out at 3 of the very glitzy, top of the line Amsterdam restaurants that were rather/very costly, we went for a change of pace and pocketbook and had a delightful low key and tasty meal at this warm, friendly, attractive, family run restaurant. The courses were delicious, the portions were reasonable in size, the food full of flavor,... More
