Very Good Food, Cozy Atmosphere in the middle of Cold Amsterdam!

I visited this restaurant every time I visited Amsterdam because of the taste of the Lamb & Mushrooms Balti Curry. No one else can make the Balti curry like the way they do. All other dishes, the steamimg basmati rice, freshly baked naan and cold Kingfihser beer just seem to make the meals there... read more

If you are visiting Amsterdam and in need of Indian food I cannot recommend Balti House highly enough. It really serves some excellent food at decent prices. The meat is fresh and the sauces excellent. Take away is available in the sense that you call them up and then pick up the food. It's usually a little cheaper that way... More

I never find Dutch indians the same as uk curries, and this was no exception. Nice enough food, very good service. Its a busy little place with a buzz about the place.

My boyfriend and I sat outside in the evening sun. We had vegetable korma and chicken korma with (peshwari) naan and rice. It was lovely and just the right amount to make us satisfied. The waiter was very helpful and the location is very nice.

Restaurant was full when we arrived, so the first impression was good. Ordered mixed grill and chicken tikka bhuna. Chicken tikka bhuna was nice but too salty. Mixed grill portion was not satisfactory. Over all good.

On a recent trip to Amsterdam we were recommended this restaurant. The service received was terrible. We were only given 1 popodom between 2 people and when asked for more (we're happy to pay) it didn't come until after the meal and even then only received another 1! Food was ok. Good quality. It's a shame the staff were not... More

The food was wonderful!!! He ordered many small plates to share. our favrites were the sheek kababs, chicken tikka, hot wings, and bombay potatoes. Our absolute favorite was the garlic nan. We had to order a second order because my husbands mouth was on fire from the spicy lamb dish he ordered. Our waiter was wonderful and made great recommendations.... More

Unplanned visit to this restaurant as we found a nearby pizzeria did not give the service we hoped for. Found the Balti House a lovely restaurant with attentive service and delicious Indian food. The Tandoori fish was amazing. Recommended.

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.
