Good food but bad service

We visited this place 2 times due to good food. But the service was very slow. We need to wait more than an hour for the food.

Close to Sex museum you walk a narrow lane to reach this hotel. Given the inside ambiance and approach the menu is expensive. Good thing is the taste of the food, original and allows you to choose between spicy and hot like real Indian and softer tones for the timid ones. I will praise the Sri Lankan girls who were...

A great find. Tucked in the midst of Amsterdam's main tourist thoroughfare, this was an unexpected bonus. Not a grand entrance like many of the all singing all dancing neon fronted restaurants of Amsterdam. A small, slightly worn, passage entrance, but beyond it friendly service, excellent food (particularly for vegetarian options) and all for a surprisingly good price.

During our long Europe trip, we had a craving for Indian food and we found this place near our hotel (NH Grand Central Krasnapolsky) in A'dam. The food was awesome and very close to what you get in good Indian restaurants. Everything we ordered was awesome.

Perfect in terms of taste, quantity, pricing and location. I would say that the taste and preparation were better than some of the actual good restaurants in India as well.

Try the vegetarian food here. I didn't find it great the non-vegetarian options. I prefer to eat vegetarian while traveling and this was just OK. Huzayf

When you wend your way down the alley and open the door, you know you are in right place. Packed with locals and people from its native country, that tells you it has to be good. And it is. Generous portions, prompt service, free papadum and pickles, sensible prices. Its not posh, but it is homely. Even after we had... More
