We had an amazing meal at Purna after a long day in Amsterdam. Service was the best we have experienced, it was like eating with the host family. Can't wait for our next visit.

Since I live just down the street from this place I thought I'd give it a go. And I was very disappointed. They're pricey and the food is not what you'd expect from an Indian restaurant. All the curries had strange, unnatural bright colours. But...More
