I visited this restaurant with my wife based on the excellent reviews received here in Tripadvisor.
It is easy to find :-) The place is nicely refurbished and is very clean!

The service and the food were both excellent. We shared several dishes to get a taste of as much as possible :-) The portions are more than enough...

I would strongly recommend the place for everyone with a taste for Indian Cuisine and even for people who are planning to give Indian Cuisine a try - this is definitely the place to start.

We went to this place on the recommendation of some local indian friends. We went one evening without recommendations thinking that it should be easy to get a table at an indian place - boy, were we wrong ! The owner is very pleasant and promised to do the best he could - but we still ended up waiting for an hour for a table, and throughout our meal we saw people turning up for a table.

And the reason, of course, is that the food is great ! And since we are indian people, we can tell ! the service was very personal - with the owner and his wife personally attending to their guests.

The ambience is nice - and does not have the typical indian spices smell that some restaurants suffer from.

Overall - for people who like indian food, a great choice in amsterdam !

We were at Taj Mahal on our trip to Amsterdam. The place has great service. The food is very homely. I would have given it a 5 star if the food was exquisite. Don't get me wrong the food is edible. But nothing to write home about. Should try it if you are craving Indian in amsterdam. One improvement they can make is the size of servings.

After some endless attempts to find a nice place to eat in Amsterdam we came across this place, and mostly due to its ratings.
The interior is very typical, as well as the menu. The service is a little bit slow, the food is also typical, nothing unusual or 'wow'-dishes.
According to the latest reviews on tripadvisor from users with one review only about Taj Mahal, the restaurant's management is trying to boost themselves among other places.
I would not recommend this place to my friends unless they really want something typical Indian, not very delightful with slow service applied.

We stumbled upon this unassuming, family-managed restaurant after completing the Heineken Experience tour; it's a half-block behind the Heineken building and well worth the visit. The food is actually very very good and didn't expect such an authentic Indian meal in the Dam!! The great food, courteous service with a smile and a hot Indian 'chai' in the middle of a cold, rainy night was a wonderful recipe - do try it!!
