What we didn't know was that we were in for some of the best food and service we had experienced anywhere. Wow! And the butter chicken will about... More

This is the second time I've been here and the standard of food remains very high. I was with a group who don't usually eat curry and they loved it. Mixed starters delicious as were: chicken Madras, Gurkha Lamb, chili chicken, butter chicken. All this with loads of cobra beer, rice, man breads and a few I screams came to... More

Slightly pricey, but excellent food and service. Favourite dish is the chicken madras hot & spicy! The restaurant is a little dark but cosy.

We had our farewell dinner here after our conference and at times it got a little tight. The staff, as usual in The Netherlands, are brilliant, the food was good but the promised widi for our Livestream was patchy. Good place though.

Surya is a really nice small Indian restaurant, serving fresh cooked meals from ingrediants according to your selection. Nothing is pre-prepared. The 3 cheffs make your meal from fresh herbs and spices after you place your order...... so it takes a little time to come to your table...... but the service is immaculate, friendly and informative.

Had a lot of trouble finding a curry in Amsterdam that had some spice. Surya achieves that. They really listen to how hot - or mild - you want it and then it comes at that strength. Service and ambiance are great as well. we shall be back

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
