Well priced place, especially given that they are located at the center. If youa re looking for a nice Indian dish around Leidseplein, here is definitely recommended!

Our rogan josh, vindaloo, and butter chicken main meals were home-cooked wonderful. Tiny paraffin candles kept each serving dish warm, including the platter of rice, appreciated when going back for the second half. Although only a dozen other diners were at hand, service was very slow. For appetizers and main meals, two hours until we left. Family run. All locals... More

We always like to try the local Indian when we visit an area. There were several to choose from, but this one seemed quite busy which is often a good sign. It was a pretty typical Indian menu and the food was pleasant enough but not outstanding.

Best Indian food in town. Great use of the right spices and very friendly staff !! Saag paneer as it should be, you eat your fingers with the naan, the tandoori chicken is superb and so is the Lamb Rogan Josh, the king prawns, etcetera.

The restaurant was completely empty when we came in and stayed completely empty when we left. We stayed only because our friends said that the food is great and it was! They should invest in marketing I guess. The Vegi plates where all perfect. Tasty and fresh. The only complaint I have is that we orderd too much and the... More

We found this place just walking in the street, and we had a very beautiful surprise! The "butter chicken" was the best indian chicken I've ever had, with coconut, almond and tomato!! (There's a large veg choise) I'll be back!

Found this little place tucked off of the main street in the Leidseplein. As soon as we entered the place, the reassuring sign of a Sikh family and two Indian guys eating gace us the thumbs up. We weren't dissapointed. The food was very nice indeed. Different to the so called 'catered English taste buds' that we are used to.... More

This little Indian restaurant is located just off the Leidseplein in the heart of Amsterdam. The front of house staff were polite, helpful and friendly. As far as I could tell the kitchen was run by the owner and possibly his wife and although the service was leisurely the meal they produced was excellent as well as tasty and inexpensive.... More
