We rolled the dice on this one and one. It looked cleaner and neater than the Indian restaurant a few doors down. The food was delicious: they brought tap water without flinching that you weren't buying the bottled stuff. Our waiter was friendly, courteous and prompt. Did I mention that the food was delicious and sufficient in quantity? ... There... More

We came on this restaurant by accident as it's off the busy thoroughfare. Our meal was delicious - one of the best Indians we have ever eaten - and the staff of the restaurant were really friendly, helpful and welcoming. One of the young waiters was particularly nice and we had a good chat with him. The restaurant itself was... More

PROS: Friendly service Good indian food (not greasy in any way) Nice, clean interiors CONS: Poor wine selection Located in the midst of a touristy area (there are many more locales for a nice dinner out in Amsterdam) All in all, I'd give this a 3.5 star rating if I could. We had a groupon offer and this was good... More

I am not an expert in Indian food, but this was a very good experience. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable and the atmosphere was OK. It is good to see the performance of the chef at the clay oven. After the standard papadams, we took onion beignets and chicken pakora. They were OK. Both main courses were absolute... More

We can highly recommend this restaurant. The service was excellent and friendly. The atmosphere was relaxing. And the food was delicious. This is a rather large restaurant so probably you can enter directly from the street if you haven't booked in advance. If again in Amsterdam we would visit there again.

We had dinner here with a Groupon voucher. The staff were very friendly and the food was very good. We had chicken pakora for starters, mild and medium spicy chicken curry (which we shared, this was a tip from the waiter) with garlic naan and kheer for desert. We will definitely come back for dinner.

Best of all!! I never had such a delicious butter chicken along with the garlic nan bread. I made the right choice for sure. Others had lamb curry and chicken tikka masala. They were enjoying. The staff is very friendly, interior is just right and the music is peacefull. Definitely coming back for sure.
