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

Had the pleasure of eating here quite a few times during Aug.-Sep. 2014 during a business travel. The place was clean, the staff friendly and the owner is a really interesting guy with interesting stories to share. The food (pretty much everything from the menu and we have tried almost all dishes) was always amazing: perfectly spiced (not too overpowering... More

Balti House is my favorite Indian restaurant for years. I go there to celebrate my birthday as well with a lot of friends. I am never dissapointed by the service or food. My favorite starter is the hot wings and mostly i order butter chicken as a main dish. I tried many other indian restaurants in Amsterdam, but I always... More

I've been living in Amsterdam and sampling its restaurants for a dozen years. I can safely say this is the best Indian food in town in a friendly, lively atmosphere. The Dutch don't really have much experience with Indian food, so it can be hard to find really great, authentic fare. We stopped looking once we found the Balti House!... More

Have been a regular here for a long time. When I moved to Amsterdam it took a while to find what I recognised as a real curry house and this is it. The food is consistently good - very tasty and with noticeably different spicing for the different dishes. It is not too hot but the level of spicing can... More

We eat here every Friday night and it is always full of Brits who, let's face it, see curry as their national dish! We used to live in curry heaven (Bradford) and we just keep coming back to the Balti. The samosas are crispy and deliciously spiced, prawn puree is lemony and every curry has its own distinctive flavour. The... More

This was my favourite restaurant in the world and I've been going since 2000. It's seen better days but the food was still delicious.
