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

I saw this place while having a walk in the district and something told me I should give it a try. It's hard to find something so good in A'dam for this price. The service was really kind, they had already closed the kitchen, but they gave us a fantastic tandoori chicken with different side dishes that were all cooked... More

In the 9 Streets district, seek out this lovely family owned (26 years) Indian. Warm and welcoming with tasty and well-proportioned meals. We loved it and the service was perfect.

Good ambience, best place to have a quiet lonely dinner may be after a hectic city tour. Tried Indian food, which was spicey as expected and delicious. Menu covers all famous recipes. Wish I could repeat that dinner again with candle light, during winter with real chilly windy street just outdoor.

This restaurant is in the heart of the 9th (district?) shopping area of Amsterdam. This is family owned and they are very friendly. The menu is extensive and delicious. The restaurant is elegantly decorated and has an intimate feel.

Great little indian place in "The nine streets"-area! Obviously family-driven, and very authentic. Nice interior, great food, great service. The waitress mixed up our orders, but was super-cute in apologizing, and super-fast in correcting the meals. Would consider reserving a table if you are a group of more than 4 people!

Food was very good - great King Prawn Madras and really delicious nan - and the atmosphere was nice and relaxed. On the night that we visited the service was not great for the first part of the evening but then improved when the proprietor's wife arrived to help.

My experience with Indian food has been rather limited, but on vacation my friend and I stopped by Purna, as it was near our hotel. Wonderful, friendly service and absolutely delicious, tasty food. Have the cheese nan to start!

I ate in this restaurant last summer. The location is very special: the famous 9 streets of Amsterdam. I really love Indian food, the flavor and the essence. I had an awesome curry , the bread is very tasty. Unfortunately, the service wasn't so accurate anyway I highly recommend this restaurant.
