We ate in this restaurant based upon the odors drifting out of it when we walked by and we weren't disappointed. The food was excellent. The service is a little slow, but the family that owns and runs the restaurant is very friendly. It was so good, we went back a second time before we left A'dam.

we come here for years already. the surroundings of Leidseplein being crowded with a lot of 'so-so' restaurants, this is a place we love to visit. a family business, obviously, in look and feel.

I have been a fan of Bombay inn in the past but off late have realised they don't really have any intention of customer satisfaction. Three times in the last 3-4 months I have gone there only to be turned away. Excuse being they need reservation when the restaurent was completely empty. I would advise people avoid this place as...

The Bombay Inn was just ok. The food was ok but with so many excellent Indian restaurants in Amsterdam I would go for a different one. Also, they have a sitcker on door saying that they accept Visa cards but when you want to pay the machine is broken.

We were walking around Leidseplein square in search of a decent Indian restaurant and found this one according to our budget and liking. We entered this place but were refused entry on grounds that they operated only on prior reservations. We saw that there were a few tables empty and were quite puzzled. We stood outside for a few more... More

A small Indian restaurant near Leidseplein. Although the atmosphere is a little bit like a living room, the food is really tasteful and prices are very affordable. We have been going here for ten years and never had a bad meal. Love their chicken saag. Our children eat it too, since it's not that spicy.

Ended up at this Restaurant at Lange Leidsewars Straat, near Leidseplein, after checking several other Restaurants in the area, which were either full or had bad atmosphere (TV running). Were very positively surprised by the quality of food - true family cooking!

If you want truly authentic homemade Indian food, at a reasonable price, this is the place to go. Don't let the interior put you off. The food is great, and the price is right!
