“Pleasant surroundings, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

We had dinner here the night we arrived -- we were suffering from jet lag and looking for comfort food. The Balti House provided the comfortable surroundings and easy dining that we were looking for. Service was good, and the prices were moderate. However, the food is very average. Next time I'm in town, I'd look for a better Indian restaurant option.

“A bit of a surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Initially we had intended to eat in Leidseplein but the only Indian restaurants we could find in that area were tucked away down dodgy backstreets. Eventually after scouring our Lonely Planet guide we came across a recommendation for this place. It was a fair way out of the city centre but relatively easy to get to and worth the trip.

The restaurant is quite small so it felt intimate and relaxed which we really appreciated after a hectic day. The staff were very friendly and even gave us a side of Bombay Potatoes on the house which was nice of them. The food was delicious and was also served quickly which is always a bonus. Prices were much cheaper than we had expected and I'd definitely go back if we were in the area.

“Where's the spice?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Looking for somewhere to eat in Amsterdam is tricky due to the amount of choice! We chose the Balti House as it was already busy at 6 o clock.

Positives - great starters, hot wings and onion bhajis.Service very good. Amstel lager nice! Mains - my girlfriends chicken Tikka Massala wasnt bad, but my Chicken and Lamb Balti was not good. No spice and very bland.

Overall I felt the Balti House was expensive for what was served up and perhaps wished we had gone somewhere else.

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Great food, lots of selection, good prices. We eat Indian a lot, and were impressed with their beef vindaloo - very spicy & delicious. Great homemade naan bread, cozy atmosphere. The servers were very friendly as well. All adds up to a great experience! If we lived in this city I could see this being a local favourite of ours.
