Superb

Excellent food. My husband had chicken tikka masala and I had the balti lamb from the specialities menu. We also had keema naan. Everything was great. We would definitely go back.

We ordered light snacks and tea. Firstly they took almost an hour in serving the snacks. While we were having the snacks, owner of the restaurant came to our table and told us to leave the table. We told him that what kind of behaviour is this and we are yet to get the tea we ordered with the snacks.... More

It is true i was there with house regulars, and very knowledgeable Indian people so they were able to recommend the best dishes. Still my favorite butter chicken (including the ones I had in India)!

Stopped in while walking around on a recent trip and I was very pleased. I was in Amsterdam for three days and ate two of my dinners here, plus the leftovers for breakfast! I mainly stopped in because I was craving a Kingfisher, but the food was delicious. I was by myself both times and even though they were busy,... More

Those that have any idea about decent indian cuisine will avoid, food is not fresh, interior has horrible white panels inside and chipped old furniture. Male staff were really, two were even arguing with each other-avoid at all costs!

Traditional and really tasty! With children, you can choose for spicy or mild. If you love Indian food: this is still the place to be..

Very cozy Indian restaurant in Amsterdam. A little far from city centre, definitely it's worth its grade! Been there with my wife. Candlelight and good food

Used to the best of Asian cuisine in London this was just OK and nothing special - chutneys were poor quality and everything was a little "runny". Price was reasonable.

I was amazed by the level of professionalism... As I wrote in the title, I'm new to Indian Cuisine, but I like spicy and flavored food. I'm on a business travel here in Amsterdam, and after the first hour in your restaurant, it already became my favorite (and not only in Amsterdam, it's on the top of my list!), and... More

Staying in De Pijp

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
