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...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...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...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.

Balti House in De Pijp neighbourhood delivers solid Indian cooking as we are used to it in the West .... curries, Tandoori, nan-bread, Kingfisher beer etc. Prices moderate. Service quick and businesslike friendly. Location is quite handy opposite the Sir Albert hotel and a few...More

Cozy restaurant. Service was cool and unpleasant. The food was no good. I’ve had better Butter Chicken out of a precooked Woolworths meal. It was watery, chicken was tough. Seeing a very large Coca Cola fridge, I ordered a Coke, something I do only rarely....More

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
