“Relaxed atmosphere and great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Food was very good - great King Prawn Madras and really delicious nan - and the atmosphere was nice and relaxed. On the night that we visited the service was not great for the first part of the evening but then improved when the proprietor's wife arrived to help.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

My experience with Indian food has been rather limited, but on vacation my friend and I stopped by Purna, as it was near our hotel. Wonderful, friendly service and absolutely delicious, tasty food. Have the cheese nan to start!

“India in "De 9 Straatjes"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

I ate in this restaurant last summer. The location is very special: the famous 9 streets of Amsterdam. I really love Indian food, the flavor and the essence.
I had an awesome curry , the bread is very tasty.
Unfortunately, the service wasn't so accurate anyway I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Good Food, Good Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

This establishment feels like home, thanks to the careful work of the staff. The palak paneer wasn't the best ever, but it was good enough considering the ambiance and other dishes.
