Surya must be one of the most popular Indian restaurants in Amsterdam as the place was jam-packed on a Tuesday evening. The mixed starter comprising of mainly deeply fried bites and snacks was pretty OK, but just that. Then we had to wait over an hour before the main dishes were served which were slightly disappointing. The chicken madras was... More

This is a restaurant that serves very good tasting food in a nice environment. Personnel is friendly. Cook does take his time making food, for us that's no problem at all. Chicken paneer and saag paneer - very nice. Sometimes the whole place is full so make a reservation on buzy days.

Lovely decor and intimate lighting. The fried entrees were pretty tasteless, paneer pakora and bhaji onion very disappointing. Hot chicken wings good. Pappadum's and sauces that were offered were good. We shared 4 entrees and 5 mains. Ok but nothing special. Highlight was the tandoori fish. Basmati rice was terrible. Bill was expensive €174 for 4 of us. Definitely would... More

The twin restaurants in Amsterdam and Hilversum have been on our list of favourite places to eat for a while now. The food is always delicious and the staff is always friendly and helpful. The setting is colourful in a tasteful way, comfortable and intimate. I have used this restaurant to introduce several people to Indian food and they all... More

Last minute booking on-line about an hour before . Very prompt service and 3 very good curry's ....I went for the Nepalese option. Excellent Garlic Naan. generous servings... Not too expensive, given where restaurant located. Downside..... A bit lacking in character and wouldn't serve tap water. So extra Cobras required,,!
