Added to that cannot forget the pleasant Gurbani music playing...i was seated... More

Unpretentious and unassuming concentrating on serving really nice food with the most helpful service you will encounter. The owner took over the place in Nov-2012 and has set about pouring in all his heart and efforts to this restaurant. It has a little way to go in terms of décor and extent of choice but don’t be afraid of asking... More

typical indian place -- simple interior and tableware, ethnic decorations. The food did not disappoint -- curries were tasty. I had chiken tikka and prawns madras, my friend had tandoori prawns. Service was a bit on the slow side. Overall, you won't be disappointed if you like typical indian family-run restaurants. Ok for lunch or simple dinner. Nothing really fancy.... More

One of my best Indian meals ever. Very kind service. Also a perfect price.... We ordered for two but maybe it was enough just for one. I was so sad to leave in my dish such awesome food. Compliments.

The place is run by an indian family. Really nice atmosphere and the food is delicious and original. We´ve tried a lot of curry all over europe and have to admit that this is one of our favourite ones. Thanks for the great evening and welcoming place. Looking forward to eat at yours again when we come back to Amsterdam...

Having dinner there was a great experience, and a perfect closure to a lovely day. The food was very good, generous portions, excellent service , very nice atmosphere... More

Really great restraunt. Good deals and very reasona bly priced. This restraunt is in a really nice little square of restraunts. The manager couldnt do enough for us and even gave one of our party a free dessert! We paid just under 20 euros each for a tandoori chicken, saag panner, rice, poppadums, a beer and ice cream after!! Good... More

Recently took a few friends and colleagues out for the most amazing Indian food in Amsterdam. Have lived in the city for well over a year now but never has the service or food been better than at Taj Mahal. In Ams it not typical to leave a tip but we left a 20 euro note on top of our... More
