When I was reading the reviews here I thought it is the best Indian restaurant in the world, But I shocked , It's very normal and tasteless , Friendly staff.

A reasonably good Indian restaurant centrally located, however, you need to book a few days in advanced sit is quite small and very busy. We were lucky to get a table last minute by booking on Tripadvisor but I say lucky as we got a mail back immediately saying that the table was not free as a delay from the... More

We arrived starving at the Koh I Noor and we did not regret our choice. Warm welcome, professional service and dishes are just delicious. I only regret that the cheese nan was filled with "Emmental" cheese instead of "Vache qui rit" type. But anyway, I would not hesitate to go back there :)

Delicious meal. Good service. Very kind waiters and owner! It's necessary to make reservations. Take care that you remember the place you made reservations at; there are two locations of this restaurant. One is located on the Westermarkt, the other on Rokin. It was wonderful!

Usually I eat Indian food when I travel, but I have never eaten one that tasted so good like in this restaurant. The place is relatively small and always full, the personnel very attentive and polite, the food is amazing.

Went there twice in one week. Lovely food, friendly helpful staff. Great garlic naan bread. Only warming is even their mildly hot dishes are quite hot. However their mild dishes are to die for. Loved it

We came upon this restaurant by chance and were glad we did. For anyone who likes Indian food, the menu will look familiar but the cooking clearly is a notch or two above what we're used to. Service is friendly and efficient, and the waiter dealt with an ordering mix-up (our fault) with grace.

First off I want to let you all know that this place is downright atrocious. I came here with my family of four, and the service and food were the worst. Being Indian I can say this is not real Indian food. 1. Service: The service here was DISGUSTING. The staff here really couldn't be more rude and RACIST! If... More

We had a short stay in Amsterdam and found this restaurant again having once been there over 10 years previously. I don't really need to go on much about this restaurant because, in a nutshell, it is superb in every aspect. Living in Germany the Indian restaurant experience ( if you can find one) is to say the least, disappointing.... More
