“Best curry in town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

A great Indian restaurant serving authentic Indian cuisine unlike other restaurants around Amsterdam that normally use the same base for every curry.

I recently visited this restaurant with a couple of my friends and we tried several things. Dishes that especially stood out were the Chicken Tikka Masala, Biriyani and the Tandoori Chicken. Two of my friends are vegetarians and they seemed to enjoy the food they ordered as well, including the Paneer Masala which was their favorite.

A word about the staff - they are extremely patient and kind, and actually take time to explain their menu even though the restaurant was quite full. The waiters make sure that you have a great time. Our waiter, Mahi, particularly kept us entertained with his jokes, stories etc.

A must!

“Great for groups...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

If a bunch of friends are having a drink and decide to turn it into dinner, Koh-i-noor is one of the places I usually take them. The food is good and fast, they have good options for vegans and vegetarians, and are good at finding a range of dishes that kids and adults can share if you like eating "family style".

I wouldn't say it's the spiciest in town, but it's consistently good and reasonably priced.

“Excellent Indian rood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

I think this is one of the best Indian restaurants in Amsterdam. The staff are very friendly and polite and the food is really good. It's always very busy and has a nice atmosphere. I would highly recommend it!

“Busy little Indian restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

I recently went to this restaurant with some friends who had highly recommended it. I was rather disappointed with the food, there are definitely better Indian restaurants in Amsterdam. The service though was excellent and the prices were reasonable. I have to say, I would not hurry back for a return visit.
