good but not worth the 4.5* rating

Business dinner for 14 persons The chef proposes a package with a bit of everything as sharing dishes. 10 persons were having meat and 4 were vegetarian and it averaged ~30€ per person without the drinks... which is a bit expensive taking into account that most of the meat is chicken (so... read more

I live in London and go to some great Indian restaurants, so when I visited this place in Leiden I was really pleasantly surprised. Don't be put off by the dated decor. The owners are great, and very friendly. You must go for the Naan bread, which is fresh and even a little crunchy, without being too oily.

The service was quite fast and very friendly. We took the vegetarian menu: it was refined, excellent and tasty. We had a pleasant conversation with the owner. A nice place that we warmly recommend .

Have been in Leiden for 6 months and was getting a little tired of the limited selection of vegetarian dishes at most restaurants. Luckily, we happened upon this place on our way to a small art house movie theatre last night. Although here's a page devoted to vegetarian menus and dishes, we were informed - after asking - that any... More

I like trying out different Indian restaurants when I travel and had low expectations for finding something good in Leiden but was pleasantly surprised by India Way. The staff was extremely welcoming and accomodating even though we had a couple of difficult customers -- the food was very tasty and good - definitely worth going!

It is kinda cozy, although a bit run down, and we had a good meal (menu deal), more than enough to eat and it was packed with people. Not the best Indian food I ever had, but it was nice. Service... well, one guy was cranky, the other was nice. Wine prices were good though! I don't think it will... More

When you enter the restaurant the first impression is that of one that had the best times quite some time in the past, and it could use a good facelift. However, don't let this impression fool you. The service is friendly and the food is good.

We are on a business trip in Leiden and love indian food. We read the tripadvisor ratings and decided to go there, even though it is a quite expensive restaurant. Ordered a vegetarian Thali for two and King Prawns. The food was not fresh at all, the currys looked and tasted as if they have been cooked at least one... More

The service was friendly and the decor nice, even though it needs some maintenance. The meal arrived very quickly to my pleasant surprise. The rice was soft and fluffy and tasted nice. I spooned some of the rice and lamb madras on my plate and took a taste, the saltiness of the sauce was nearly overwhelming. I could hardly taste... More
