You must have the butter chicken. One of the best dishes I've ever had. The saag paneer was also excellent and the staff members were really friendly and helpful.

I visiting Surya only once for a Indian Food Dinner along with couple of friends, while we were in Amsterdam for a Business Conference. The food was quite good, though a bit of less spicy as compared to typical Indian food I must say. Nice interiors, friendly and professional staff made it a delightful experience. From pricing I think they... More

The menu is full of promises, and they are fulfilled! It's really worth to take a few steps out of inner city center. I came here twice in one year, and this place keeps its high standards, with a warm welcome and and an excellent service.

This Restaurant did not turn out the way i expected it to be. i was disappointed in fact. The lamb meat was terrible, not tender hard to bite, very dry both in the mixed grill tandoori plate and in the lamb curry.

We always try to make sure that all our dishes are of the highest standard before leaving the kitchen. Unfortunately on this occasion, it may not have been the case. We hope that this isolated incident didn't ruin your overall dining experience at... More

Excellent Indian food, great atmosphere and lovely staff. Well priced food that was beautifully cooked and presented, some dishes were a little obver spiced with chilli powder, rather than a mix of spices but it was all very tasty.
