Good Food!

Had dinner here with a few friends, ambience isn't the best part of this restaurant but the food was nice, authentic and reasonably priced. Staff was friendly and looked after us well, came out pretty happy

We got into this restaurant as the other Indian one we tried had a long waiting time, but we were not disappointed. The place was crowded, which was no surprise as its on a busy street of Amsterdam nearby popular tourist area. We were greeted by a very friendly staff and given a good table. Its a bit cramped (however... More

My boyfriend and I traveled to Amsterdam for my birthday for 2 nights and we really fancied an Indian. After trying to find some local Indian restaurants I found some positive reviews online regarding the Ghandi so we decided to try it out. The restaurant is along a busy road and the outside of the restaurant is not very appealing,... More

I would suggest the Indians or foreigner to ask for best thaali. A thali is a platter of Indian bread, Subji, rice, chicken lollipop, butter chicken kurma, mix veg, soup and... More

We wanted somewhere close to our hotel (central) so we tried this unprepossessing looking restaurant. We love Indian food, and we were not disappointed. Quick and efficient service, delicious food, not that expensive. Gets very busy, so go early!

In the middle of the bursting street of the city, this is a nice place to experience Indian food at a reasonable rate. Most of the Indian delicacies are available, seating space is decent. Service staff is courteous and was given access to use their WiFi as well which was very helpful. Non veg cuisine is good with bread. Overall,... More

We were leery of this place at first, due to it being in the main tourist area, but we ended up being delighted by all aspects of this little restaurant. We were sat immediately in the only open table in the place, and all of the staff were very friendly. The nan was delicious, and the chef didn't skimp on... More

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.
