Good food with normal ambiance and service

The first time I visited this place in 2014 itw as really good. I went alone. Next time, I went on the King's day in 2015. I felt the service level was not so okay (may be because of king's day, the staff were tired?). But I must say the food on both occasions was really lip smacking!

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.

Location is one of the few good things about this restaurant. It's located right near the Dam Square. Food is good but a little overpriced. Unlike other Indian restaurants they don't serve complementary rice or water. Waitresses seemed inexperienced and the service was very slow.

Visited Amsterdam last Christmas and thought I will struggle for good vegeterian food. Little did I know that there is a gem of an Indian restaurant, very close to the central station which serves outstanding Indian food (Veg and Non Veg). Also the staff is very friendly and affable... Recommend to every one in Amsterdam!

Had dinner in May 2015, worst ambiance, bad hygiene, not good food. Waiters cleaned the tables and also severed the food with out washing hands. Charged 5.5 euros for a bottle of water. Food was terrible. Will not recommend.

This is no where close to what Indian cuisines are like - I did not find it worth going to and quickly moved out after ordering a paratha. The music was pathetic, cleanliness was questionable - out and out a bad set up. Pls don't waste time on this.
