My favorite Indian restaurant

I've been here a lot when I lived in Hilversum. It's a small restaurant with great Indian food and very friendly service.

I had been to this restuarant 2 years ago, so decided to go again. Food is nice. Service is excellent. I tried another Indian restuarant whilst in Hilversum, and out of the 2, the other one is better.

Shanthy is a Hilversum classic. A lot of Indian restaurants, especially in Amsterdam, are basically tourist traps, but this little family restaurant offers quality Indian food, with fresh ingredients for a reasonable price. The curries can be as spicy or mild as you want. The owner and his family are very friendly and make sure everyone feels welcome, without being... More

Food very fresh and well prepared, especially veggies. Great service - family run so no pretensions, just considerate. Will revisit for sure

I'm very happy I took the chance at this Indian restaurant after a few other disappointments in Hilversum. It has become my number one take out restaurant. The food is properly cooked and flavored. The restaurant is small but cozy and worth it.

Gorgeous food and lovely ambience. Very cosy. Probably not great for large groups and would recommend booking as they have been very busy each time we have gone in. I would go back there tomorrow. Reckon it is one of the best restaurants in that street.

This small place is a bit off centre on the way to the Old Harbour of Hilversum. But well worth the walk if you want to experience some really genuine Indian-Ceylonese cuisine. Run by a friendly family (father, mother, daughters) this place is no thrills in interior but makes that up with excellent cooking. But be warned! They have made... More
