Great tasting food with good but SLOW service...

This is a nice and cosy restaurant and perfect for a relaxing evening when you have nothing else to do. The food is lovely and truly Indian. There is a nice family feel to the ownership and they are all very polite however it does take ages to get served. I would recommend but not if you have plans... read more

The reason I recomend this restaurant to everyone in the neighboorhood is of the home feeling this restaurant gives me. This is one of the few places I can eat good vegetarian food also.

I'm from England and I love Indian restaurants, this was the perfect place to go. The atmosphere is nice and calm, and the staff speak good English. They serve beer! That is always a bonus. The food was perfect, I had chicken madras and it was cooked with the right spice, and for €15 with rice it's a great price.... More

Being an Indian, trying almost every Indian restaurant in every province of Netherlands, I can confidently vouch that India Palace makes the most delicious, close to home taste Indian food. Excellent recipes, excellent taste, wonderful service and you can feel assured that whatever you order from the menu will be delicious and yummy. Since I have known this restaurant, I... More

I like this restaurant a lot. Indian food has always been one of my favorites and the Indian Palace has not let me down. I've been a regular customer for 14 years and often eat here with my family especially for big occasions, with friends passing through town, and occasionally solo after a long work day. They have a wide... More

Having had a wide range of experience of Indian meals in restaurants in many different cities in Europe, I am now convinced that the Indian Palace in Haarlem is simply the best. The food is just melt in the mouth delicious and in that sense it's worth the cost. The service is fine, atmosphere is neutral, which makes it suitable... More

Such a shameful service and proportions of food offered, really spoiling the name of the Indians and Indian food. Palace with a beggars heart. They dont even serve single meals which may cost u less like a dish and Rotis, but they will insist you to buy the whole menu so that their bill exceeds 20Euros or more. My heartfilled... More

We enjoyed out meal here as we were on holiday but the quality of the food was very average and the prices were towards the high end of the spectrum for a run of the mill curry.

This restaurant used to be so good, but not any more. Now the food is mediocre, the portions small and the service poor - degenerating into diabolical if the place gets busy. Bad value for money and a frustrating experience.
