“Aroma of Nepali and Indian Culture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Himalayan Kitchen is the most popular destination in Amsterdam for Nepali and Indian Cuisines. This Kitchen has the perfect essence of Nepali and Indian culture, which gives lively look to this place. When we visit there for dinner, we feel we are in some other world. The interior and ambience of the kitchen is very much different from outdoor ambience.
We ordered for soup for starter and then Indian dishes for main course. Soup is really very amazing; we did not have such great soup in Amsterdam. In fact, main course has its own taste and presentation. Main course is perfect Indian cuisine. The herbs, species and other aromatic ingredients are well-blended with each other. The experiment they perform with dishes, gives it a new look and taste. We had a great time there and enjoyed the food till fullest.

“Excellent Nepalese restaurant in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

We spotted this place from TA when wondering where to eat on our first ever visit to Amsterdam. Luckily it was also very near to our hotel. It's approximately 15 minutes tram trip from Central Station and next to a small market place. We visited Himalayan Kitchen on Friday evening about 5pm so we were the first guests of that evening. We were served by a very, very friendly young waiter who spoke excellent English. We had samosas for starters and mixed tandori grill and chicken tikka sarabi. Orders came quickly enough and all were very good.

So over all a nice, peaceful place serving lovely Nepalese food with a great service!

This is the first time we visited Amsterdam and we loved the city. This was our last night here and we found this wonderful restaurant Himalayan Kitchen.
The food wad the best Indian food I have ever eaten, the mixed grill I ordered was sooooo tender and juicy. The saag paneer was FABULOUS and I have eaten, and it is my utmost favorite..........ever. The service is so personal and attentive we felt like royalty. This restaurant is a must for Indian food in Amsterdam!!!!
