Surya is a really nice small Indian restaurant, serving fresh cooked meals from ingrediants according to your selection. Nothing is pre-prepared. The 3 cheffs make your meal from fresh herbs and spices after you place your order...... so it takes a little time to come to your table...... but the service is immaculate, friendly and informative.

Had a lot of trouble finding a curry in Amsterdam that had some spice. Surya achieves that. They really listen to how hot - or mild - you want it and then it comes at that strength. Service and ambiance are great as well. we shall be back

Lovely place to sit in an eat. Dark and cosy and nice ambience. Good food and attentive fast service. The madras is really hot but I like it that way.

What an amazing meal we had here, food was delicious and portion sizes were huge! The service was also incredible, every single waitress we encountered was attentive and chatty, without seeming invasive. The décor and atmosphere inside the restaurant was beautiful and relaxed. Really there is nothing I can fault at all. Thank you for making our visit so lovely!

went to this restaurant for Team dinner with colleagues. Food was good and service was also good. But something which I would never do if I visit this restaurant again is- Never order any Vindaloo dishes. The way Vindaloo is prepared in India is different.

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
