Was traveling on business and staying in hotel nearby and read about the restaurant on Trip Advisor. I arrived, with no reservation and was seated in nice part of the restaurant. My meal arrived promptly and very tasty. Very decent prices. Would certainly recommend.

Good Indian taste. Nice good starters and snacks. Main course be careful to select the spice level. Madras Checken etc are very very spicy.

Food was good but quiet expansive as there is no menu at all. I asked for tapwater and was brought some "filtered tapwater" (still tapwater though). What a surprise when I saw I got charged 7EUR for two tapwaters.. Stop screwing your customers!

By coincidence I stumbled on this restaurant in Amsterdam (Ceintuurbaan). From the outside you hardly see what a nice restaurant is hidden behind a purple marquee and dark window. On the inside you enter a somewhat dark, but cosy Nepalse and Indian restaurant. Staff is very helpful and the armosphere is relaxed. I asked if take away was possible, and... More

Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students.
