“Good food but service needs improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Food was good but quantity is pathetic. There was no difference in quantity between side dish and main dish. Food was tasty though. Location is great and ambiance is also nice. This restaurant is an authentic Indian restaurant. Service needs a little improvement as they take too much time for service. I found one of the waiters too rude and unprofessional as he was staring at us in a weird manner which was so unprofessional. Also, he patted on one of my friends back for informing us that he is going to get our dish soon. This is such a pathetic way of serving customers. I will not go back to this one again as there are other good value for money Indian restaurants available in Amsterdam. These guys need to get professional.

“Excellent Indian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

We visited this restaurant on a Friday night. It was really crowded so I would definitely recommend making a reservation.

Their menu has a wide array of choices to choose from. The food was excellent, you can see that they cook with fresh ingredients exclusively. I had the lamb karahi and my wife the prawn curry and both were excellent. I would also recommend their lassis and nans.

Service was very attentive and efficient.

“Delicious Indian Food, great service & location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

All 11 of us really enjoyed this restaurant. The owners and staff were very accommodating, and the food was delicious. We ordered an array of appetizers and main courses and they all were perfect and flavorful. It also also nice that they served us glasses of regular water with our wine and beer as most restaurants in Amsterdam they refuse to do so.

“Tasty food and lively location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

The restaurant is located in a good location. The food served are tasty and able to differentiate the flavours across dishes :) which we cannot in some of the restaurants ! We were 9 of us, booked a table on the Diwali evening and had a good time. The soups were good; veg. starters were oily - samosas and Onion bhajee - can be avoided. The main course was definitely better compared to starters. The rotis, kulchas were good so as the sides. However, service could have been faster; though it was a busy day !

My wife and I ate at Taj Mahal in late October. I had the special which included Chicken Tikki and my wife ordered Lamb Birani. The food was exceptionally good! The ambience is very nice, and the service well paced and extremely friendly and professional. We highly recommend this restaurant.
