“Hard to find but well worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

While in Amsterdam my wife and I found this restaurant on Tripadvisor. It took us a bit of looking to find it but are we ever glad we did. We had the set lunch menu and for only 18 euro each got more food than we could finish. Good starter of soup followed by rice, chicken and lentyl. Very good food and fast, personable service!

“Nice restaurant..maybe overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

heard that this is the restaurant for Indian food in Amsterdam. Had a lunch. We were in a hurry...

Good location.The restaurant has a pleasant décor.

It was lunch time and it was fast service. But I have the same complaint. The food tastes as it it is prepared quite awhile (see my reviews of other restaurant) and then heated up, the chicken I got seemed a bit tasteless though the gravy was OK.

On that day , unfortunately even the breads (rotis/naans ) we were served was a bit cold.

So I think it is overrated a bit.

“Over Rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Tried this restaurant on a recent trip to Amsterdam and booked it in advance. The reviews are quite over rated to be honest. My partner and I have travelled to many different countries and this Indian was average. Large portions but curries were flavourless. Service was excellent though wouldn't rush back judging the food. I would not be fussy at all I give credit when its due but this just wasn't what it was made out to be.

“Great food, excellent service”

Large portions, reasonably priced. The food was phenomenal! I couldn't "uncheck" bar scene, but there is no bar or bar scene, this is a place to eat.
