“Wonderful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

May wife and I found the service helpful and personal, at one point or another, every member of the staff visited our table to offer help or service. We shared samosas, butter chicken, saag panier, and lamb madras. The butter chicken (my favorite indian dish), was the best I've ever had. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone!

“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

This was the first restaurant we visited on this trip from London and didn't have high expectations but was pleasantly surprised. This wasn't our first choice, but the only restaurant in the area accepting orders as we entered around 10.30pm. Although hurried with ordering as the kitchen was closing, we didn't feel pressured.
We received a poppadom each and my chicken karaahi was lovely. This was regarded as the best Indian restaurant in Amsterdam and it probably is! Next time I am in Amsterdam and feel like an Indian dish, I will be visiting this family run business.

“great indian meal at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

We went to this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews and weren't disappointed. Just managed to get a table as super busy, but worth the walk from our hotel...just as good as indian meals in Leidester!
