“Very good Indain dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I especially recommend the lamb dishes. The service is very good. It is off Rembrandtplein and has been in the same location for 25 years. Nuff said--try it.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Small restaurant but great food and good value for money. Very busy all of time we were there reflecting popularity. Service was surprisingly quick and when the food arrived we were not disappointed. Heat of curry as requested.

“Good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We had dinner here the other night after just dropping in quite late. I had saag murug (chicken and spinach with spices) and my gf had the tandori mixed grill (chicken, tikka chicken, amb and lamb tikka). The saag murug was quite tasty and the chicken was tender and moist, I had rice on the side. The mixed tandori was better though with the spiced meat and cooked vegetables (overcooked but tasty enough). The chicken was far better than the lamb since one piece had too much cartilage but the other lamb chops were tasty and tender. We also had nan and a salad. The former crispy and went down quickly with the yogurt dressing but we didn't touch the salad. Boring to say the least. We both settled for a pint of Heineken from the limited selection of beer. The portions are quite large and we were happy we didn't order any menu since we couldn't have finished them.

For a large late night meal for two people including beer we paid 38 euros which I consider to be great value. Don't expect a mind blowing meal but you'll find great value here.

The only caveat was that it felt like they wanted to close down asap after we were done with our meal. I didn't check their opening hours so perhaps it was justified but otherwise I don't like the staff lingering close by while I finish my meal.

“Great Indian Food - Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Nice choice for Indian in Rembrantplein area. Located on the Utrechtsestraat where there are a lot of expensive options and tourist traps, this is a nice alternative to the rest. The staff is really friendly and will help you in choosing from a large variety of dishes. This is one of our favorite places for Indian food and is in a central location if you have other plans for the evening.

“An Indian meal to delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

Meghna is located on Utrechtsentraat and near another very good Indian restaurant Tagore. It is a small restaurant serving Tandoori style food with a mixture of other delicacies. We had the lamb Kurma, which comes with basmati rice and could only describe the sauce as delicate with just the right amount of coconut. It is a mild dish that lets all the flavours come through. We also had the mixed Tandoori grill which was perfect and comes with salad. The cost with Nan, chapatti, two beers and two glasses of wine and tip came it at under €50. Could not be beaten!
