I've been walking past this place for 25 years because it didn't look too appealing. Henk Out recommended Ghandi to us and it didn't dissapoint . I was there with my daughter and we had onion bahji and chicken pakora for starters and lamb vindaloo and lamb jalfrezi as main with a complementary butter chicken dish from the owners. All... More

Don't let the entry prevent you from trying this authentic Indian restaurant. Each couple had the special dinner for 2 for 45 euro. Way too much food but it all was delicious. Dal was great. "Best tandoori chicken" said one of my friends (and she's had a lot of tandoori). Naan was superb.

We were a group of more than 10 people, visiting from USA and found this place on our very first day in Amsterdam. We were so happy because the quality of food was excellent. There was no room in the restaurant once we were seated. We had excellent vegetarian food. The service was prompt. They can serve alcoholic drinks too.... More

I had a craving for Indian food and I knew I would be able to choose from a good assortment of vegetarian options so we Yelped an Indian restaurant near our hotel and this one had great reviews. It's easy to miss so be patient trying to find it. It's down a corridor / alley and then a quick turn... More

My husband has been living in Europe for a few months now and was craving Indian food. We came across this restaurant in the city center of Amsterdam and decided to try it. Initially we were a bit sceptical due to the entrance of the restaurant which is a narrow dingy passage and also ambience wasnt very reassuring. But please... More

Fantastic food and friendly staff. In the heart of city center with so many options around, I just thought of trying this one. And my choice was absolutely right. We were craving for authentic Indian vegetarian food and they offered it at their very best. I would recommend this to travelers looking for Indian cuisine. Thanks, Gaurav

This place really needs some work. Looks like there hasn't been any investment made in decades. It is so dirty from the tables to the bathroom that I am scared to imagine what the kitchen looks like. It was slammed with Indian guests who were all waiting for something. There was only one waiter and he couldn't complete our order.... More

Staying in Centrum

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.
