Very authentic Indian and Nepali food options. The flavors keep your mouth alive and curious for more. The mint chicken tandoori and somosas were a great way to begin - moist and flavorful. Portion sizes are perfect. For entrees, we had two curry dishes. Again,...More

Overpriced menu. For €17, you get a small portion of curry with rice. You can get that for €8 in an Indian restaurant in the same vicinity. Be ready to spend more than €35 pp if you want to have a proper meal. Taste, quality,...More

Wow, ate here three times during our visit to Ams. We loved every course but go for the chicken at all times -not the lamb (a bit chewy). Chicken wings as starter is always a good idea. The flavours! Just go and enjoy one of...More

We really loved it here, and glad we stuck out the wait. Welcome change to the relatively non-descript food in Amsterdam. That said, it's just plain delicious. Some of the best Indian food I've had anywhere. Good idea to reserve table.

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

Restaurant staff were very helpful. I am gluten free and they made sure that the chef was aware of this to prepare the food. I would have known if this was not the case. Food was delicious.
