Delicious food. Especially the Chicken Tikka Masala, which is very mild, sweet, good! Chicken Balti, medium spicy, good!

If in Amsterdam I have to visit the Balti house, no expections. If not time, you make time for it. Best Indian I have ever had in a cosy Family like restaurant.

Found this restaurant on our way home from a day in Amsterdam. The atmosphere was really great, and the food was amazing. Service was a bit slow (especially for the amount of people in the restaurant), but that wasn't that much of a problem.

Close to the NH hotel and a nice area to stay in, this place is OK for a curry fix but if you're from the UK and used to some amazing curry then this is very average. The flavours were fine, quality of the meat...was fine, etc, etc - nothing overly bad, but just average.More

Comprehensive Indian menu I solo dined here on a business trip. All the standards on offer at reasonable prices. The food itself was average - nothing to write home about. I had samosa to start which was nice and spice. Chicken current was meant to...have chicken tika in a curry sauce. Little evidence the chicken had been marinated in tandoor but overall flavour was ok. Peices of chicken were big cubes and in smaller peices would have been more enjoyable. House wine was ok. Decor a little run down.More

There are some excellent reviews for this place but on the cold dark night we called in here on our way to the hotel it was a very indifferent experience, perhaps they just wanted to close up and go home. Food ok, drinks ok but...neither outstanding. Worth a try but not for us.More

Shut the front door and throw away the key its curry time. Very nice food served on candles which amused me. Nice service and has a colonial vibe which nobody understands hence the 4/5.

We had a really good meal here. Plenty of menu choice with attentive staff and great atmosphere. Recommend booking as it is very popular on most nights.

In Amsterdam for couple of meetings, was told by my colleagues, they wanted to eat at Indian every dinner at the Balti House, must say I was not sure I would join that for 4 evenings straight with Indian dinner. But after first dinner here,...I must admit I pushed to go here the second day, and understood why they where regulars. Food is great, service is if possible even better. And the wrapping, not super fancy and expensive, but family cosy. Will for sure get back every time we visit Amsterdam. If you have not been here, you are missing out. You should order the Vindaloo or Tindaloo strength... even this is tasty, and quite different from other strong Indian. Again thanks for 4 days straight great service!More
