You fell like india here!

The taste of foods were so good! Not very spicy... But you feel india here! The washrooms are not very clean, the room is normal but location is special because it is between dam square and central station!

We had a couple of meals at this small yet welcoming Indian restaurant in Amsterdam! Everything we had was delicious and the service was good too! Did not expect to have such authentic North Indian food in Amsterdam! Mango Lassi was delicious and so was Paneer and Chana! A Must visit restaurant in The Netherlands!

Very average Indian food with less quantity. Taste wise also not that great. The ambience was fine but the entrance to the restaurant is very dingy and does not fit to be a restaurant entrance.

Dined here twice, first time was very good but the next visit disappointing... Located in Damrak close to Station/Canal cruise docks, this is quiet restaurant and the pakoda kadi was good & gave a homely feel but dal tadka & jeera rice did not fire the palate up....At the price the food was not upto the mark...

Not fancy but very tasty restaurant. In the Main Street inside a long corridor we found this colorful restaurant. We received a warm welcome and a recommendation for Thali- Manu dish, All the food was surprisingly very good. I recommend the restaurant, if you like Indian food , and you are not in the mood for elegant evening. Good value... More

The Gandhi is tucked away in an alleyway, but had been recommended to us by a local bar owner. The food was OK, and if you are used to Indian restaurants in Britain, you will find all the familiar dishes. The staff and service was fine, nothing exceptional, but nothing to complain about either. Food was good and fairly priced.
