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

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.

We had a pleasant meal. The lamb was excellent. Located on the tram route from the Concert Hall. Take your time to enjoy the experience.

We haven't gone to the Balti House for a while, like 4 years, there are better Indian restaurants in Amsterdam, however this was a one-off, last minute choice. The service is pretty awful, extremely off-hand, and gives the idea you are doing them a favour. That, not withstanding, the place was very busy. Starters, the wonderful chicken wings, were terrific... More

Both the food and service were “OK” (not awful, but lacking). Clearly not much attention is spent on preparing the food or serving it. Tip for server: Never “show” disappointment with customers’ orders—a big “no no” anywhere (Amsterdam, NY, London or Mars).

Fancied a curry, this was across the road from our hotel and prices looked reasonable so thought we would give it a go. Weather was excellent so we sat outside which made for a good atmosphere. Lots of locals in which we thought was a good sign but they obviously like their curries bland in Amsterdam. The food wasn't bad,... More
