We got a take away from this place (we have a small baby who was sleeping in the room) on a recommendation and we weren't disappointed. The food was piping hot and very flavoursome. The food tasted fresh and didn't leave a bloaty feeling after it. As part of the take away, you also get free rice and dhal, which... More

This place has been there as long as I can remember and the quality is always good and fresh, and the place is always clean. It is family run and they are friendly, also not too expensive, and it's a very cozy place in the center of Amsterdam. I always bring visitors here when they come.

Was it fresh? Yes and was it Indian, well you have to remember if they did it spicy hot 'Indian style' you would not be able to eat it. I thought they managed the spice level very well and brought the flavors through. I would definitely eat there again. I was also pleasantly surprised at at the bill.

Our group of 4 were split on whether this was a good Indian restaurant or not. Not spicy enough, too spicy for some. The cost was low, the food ok, the service good and timely.

I really can recommend this restaurant. Very good authentic indian food. They are there for ages now and the guests are a mix of locals, tourists and so. Friendly service and a good price quality. Located in one of the trendiest streets of Amsterdam.

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.
