Great Indian experience!

They serve meat based and vegetarian dishes, but they also have some vegan options available (ask the waitress). We had dinner there two times and it was really delicious, I would recommend the mushroom based vegan stew. The place was... More

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.
