Although there are quite a few Indian restaurants in the Netherlands nowadays, I have yet to impressed. Most of them in Amsterdam are pure and simple tourist traps, while the ones in the periphery usually serve bland, Europeanised dishes.

Tandoor looks clean, spacious and neat for an Indian restaurant. It has a semi-open kitchen, that is: you can see the tandoori oven behind a glass wall.

The appetizer that we had, onion bhajee, was quite edible but not the crunchy ones that we'd expected. The main dishes, chicken masala and palak paneer, were both very tasty. Especially the chicken masala was lip-smackingly good, reminding me of the best Indian dishes I'd had in nearly authentic Indian eateries in Southall, London.

The staff was remotely friendly, but tolerable. More to our liking was the bill: 50 Euro including beer and tea.

Acchaa!

By far the best Indian restaurant I visited in the Netherlands. Great food, perfect location and excellent choice of menu for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.

Get a refreshingly 'Authentic" Dhaba (Indian's most famous food joints along highways) style salad :-).

An easy choice to recommend to people who love Indian food, Indian style.

We stumbled on this restaurant after walking round a very busy Amsterdam, we wanted somewhere off the main tourist stretch where you pay high prices for not so good food,
So glad we found this place,food is the best Indian food we've had since visiting India and there was so much of it we couldn't eat it all,the staff were very polite and helpful.When in Amsterdam next we will defiantly visit this restaurant again.

Good value (for Amsterdam), great location (Leidesplein), and DELICIOUS food! We ordered a few entrees and shared them. Especially enjoyed the Cobra beer, Madras Chicken, Samosas, and Lamb Biryani (sp?)

I have eaten here twice, once with a 3 course Groupon and since then because I had a positive experience the first time. They had delicious food, a nice atmosphere and friendly and attentive service. I would recommend Tandoor for Indian. Also very easy to get to.
