I always visit... More

I went there to dine and did not find good to be here at all. The service was damn slow with food horrible. I would not suggest any one here. They definitely need to improve there service and food quality. I would not suggest any one to be here. Also I am wondering how they are in this ranking.

We visited this restaurant on the 3rd day of our visit to Amsterdam, as we were craving for some Indian food. This restaurant is closer to Dam square & Madame Tussaud museum. The food is good, we ordered Mutter Paneer, Daal, Chicken masala which was good in taste. Vegetable portions are such that one need to order 1 dish for... More

I went there for dinner, the waiter that was serving me started making friendly conversation. "How long are you here?" "Where are you from?" "What are you doing tonight?" Then "can i come with you" at which point I bluntly replied can i get the bill. When he brought over the bill he said what seemed apologitically "i was joking"... More

Koh-I-Noor gives you an excellent selection of food. The staff is friendly, the location is easy to get to, the food is absolutely amazing... spare yourself the endless walking around, looking for a good restaurant, 'cause this is the place to be.

I was skeptical about the 4.5 rating of this restaurant near Dam square in TripAdvisor. This is like finding a good (Indian or otherwise) near Times Square, New York. We ordered paratha, Naan, Chicken Masala dish, 2 vegetarian dishes including Eggplant and Dal - all dishes were very good. Each main dish costs about 20 Euro, but it is expected... More

First of all its an Indian Restaurant owned and operated by Pakistanis. So don't expect authentic Indian flavour,  only its beleaguered cousin. Today being one of the hottest days in Amsterdam we wanted to start off our lunch with a cold beer which was served warm.  On complaining we were told in a heavy Afghani-Pashtun accent that it is hot...

Dear ladies/gentlemen, my request is to replace the extra addition of location (red light district) better to write (near dam square).It is just two minutes walk from dam square. Red light area is 15 min.Walk from our rest.So will you pls.Replace that for me.As when customers read that some family members will not like to come to rest as they think that may be it is in red light.It is not in the red light.Pls.Will you change this for me. Thank you in advance, sardool singh(owner)

Neighborhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
