Beautiful and delicious food coupled with friendly and fast service. I have been guilty of eating cheaper Indian food in the past - so it was sure nice to receive a much higher standard meal. I would be very happy to recommend this restaurant to all

I've recently dined here as a group of four late last week. The restaurant is right down the first street, straight out of the main train station. Do not be fooled by it's outside appearance. It will require you to walk through a small alley/hallway with the restaurant at the end. Overall, the food and service here were above what... More

I thought this hotel is run by North Indian. But to my surprise the hotel is run by a tamilian (ofcourse Srilankan native) and he is taking care of the guest very well. South Indian and North Indian menu are available and taste is very good. They also provide take aways.

Went to this place with 12 other people so we all decided to order different mains so we could taste them all. They were all very tasty and authentic dishes which was good considering our low expectations. Situated a few minutes from Centraal train station right in the Damrak this place is definitely worthy of a visit.

Great Indian food from North India. Great chicken tikka masala, very tasty nan and chicken Tandoori was fabulous. Chicken carahay (or something like that) was our favorite.

Right in the centre of Dam Square and the Central Station. Was a bit sceptical at first with the entrance to the restaurant through a building, but once inside the place was crowded. The food a pretty good and affordable and found it to serve closest tasting food comparable to places in India. Since then, have visited 7-10 times and... More

Frankly speaking, our hotel was next door and as soon as we reached Amsterdam, after 5 of madness from Tomorrowland, we were craving for "Indian Food". And when we started eating one dish after other, it just reminded us of Bombay Style Food. Amazing presentation, great quantity at a great price and warm feeling among our indians! Do try out...

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
