I have visited this place with my parents, we all loved food. Its authentic indian food in amsterdam. Ambience ok and service is little slow but it was worth to wait for yummy hot food served and that too cheap price.

Didn't like the taste of the food served, ambience was dull, no comparison to other fine dinning indian restaurants, good for eating indian food at cheap rate provided quality is not a factor.

This is by far the worst quality Indian food we ever tasted outside India. Not recommended for fine dinning at all.

Very good people running at very reasonable prices. Have a nice door delivery facility. Named after a baby elephant called murugan which wax given as a gift to the then prime ministers son by Jawaharlal Neharu in '83

Stayed in Jordaan in October. Came across this restaurant late in the evening. The food at the restaurant really spoke volumes. We have eaten in many Indian restaurants. Mostly they are what most restaurants serve, generally greasy. If you want to eat authentic Indian food with a homely touch, this is the place to eat. In fact, we liked it... More

Not the best Indian restaurant in the world, but good Indian food for very reasonable price. We ordered 4 curries which comes with rice, bread and a salad, plus a couple appetizers and it was 50 euro! The best part is the lovely family that runs the restaurant, they were all very kind and helpful.

Since this is my first review, I'm picking my favorite Indian restaurant in Amsterdam. Murugan, named after the Hindi God of war and victory, is well named. It has a been a battle to find a good, return-able-to Indian restaurant here, and now I'm feeling giddyishly victorious. This small - quaint feeling, not small size - Indian restaurant on the...

It was our second day in Amsterdam when we found Murugan. After having just been left Italy, we had all we could of bad pasta. We knew nothing of this restaurant, and I have to say we didn't expect much. For dinner we ordered an assortment of mixed vegetable dishes including, Tinda a pumpkin curry, a chick pea curry and...
