I'm a regular at this gem of an Indian restaurant; go there at least twice a month. I'd like to keep it a secret so please don't go there. Their specialty is North Indian cuisine with lots of curries and great nan bread. Each dish is very distinct and different from the others. Not like other restaurants where only the... More

I had dinner here with a friend. He had the Butter Chicken Masala and I had the Chicken Tikka Masala. We were both very happy with our meals. The papadam and its accompaniments was terrific. Not too pricey and very nice staff. A solid Indian restaurant.

Typical service you recieve from most Indian restaurants, however we were in no hurry and were there for the food. The Balti was very good along with the assorted starters. We sat outside on the side street. A good value curry house.

Ordered food and it arrived exactly as ordered and was good quality. The restarant itself was little dingy and the staff were devoid of any kind of welcoming aura which was pity. Reasonable price

In search of a quick simple meal in De Pijp before a concert, the Balti House was convenient and filled all the essential criteria - fast service, pleasant surroundings, reasonable food and excellent value for money. This is good comfort food, although may not satisfy any Indian food guru. Like in many other Indian restaurants in Europe, the curries seemed... More

Visited the Balti house with some friends in April 2016. Very tasty and solid Indian cuisine! I had the Vegetable Balti, which was fresh and with a nice medium level of spicy.

We always enjoy Indian food and we were not disappointed. Excellent service, food and value. We enjoyed a hearty meal with beer and wine for a reasonable price. Also, the location was nearly across the street from our hotel which made it difficult for us not to return again but we decided to venture further for something different.

If you are visiting Amsterdam and in need of Indian food I cannot recommend Balti House highly enough. It really serves some excellent food at decent prices. The meat is fresh and the sauces excellent. Take away is available in the sense that you call them up and then pick up the food. It's usually a little cheaper that way... More

I never find Dutch indians the same as uk curries, and this was no exception. Nice enough food, very good service. Its a busy little place with a buzz about the place.

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
