“not satisfactory”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Didn't like the taste of the food served, ambience was dull, no comparison to other fine dinning indian restaurants, good for eating indian food at cheap rate provided quality is not a factor.

“low quality and worst, not even value for money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

This is by far the worst quality Indian food we ever tasted outside India. Not recommended for fine dinning at all.

“Amazing and authentic food...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Stayed in Jordaan in October. Came across this restaurant late in the evening. The food at the restaurant really spoke volumes. We have eaten in many Indian restaurants. Mostly they are what most restaurants serve, generally greasy. If you want to eat authentic Indian food with a homely touch, this is the place to eat. In fact, we liked it so much we went back for more.

Don't judge a book by it's cover. Trust us, the food is great.

“Good Value Indian Restraunt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Not the best Indian restaurant in the world, but good Indian food for very reasonable price. We ordered 4 curries which comes with rice, bread and a salad, plus a couple appetizers and it was 50 euro! The best part is the lovely family that runs the restaurant, they were all very kind and helpful.
