we chose this place because it was at the corner of my friend's house and it was open late to serve food and overall we have enjoyed it; for those of you who love really spicy food try the lamb vindallo it is served very hot or VERY VERY Hot :) the options we chose were tasty and so was the nun bread and the typical Indian desserts which were recommended for us by the waiter. The downside was probably the rather small portions of rice and the somewhat slow service.

We visited on the early May holiday Monday evening. At 1815 the place had enough diners to tempt us inside. I had a beautifully-spiced lamb dansak while my wife enjoyed a nice tandoori chicken. The menu states that the food is spicy but not hot, which is pretty accurate and a feat which only the better Indian restaurants pull off. We recommend the popadams which are more like papads in the UK but with fennel seeds: very tasty. The prices seem high (certainly to a Brit with current exchange rates) but are not so bad when you realise that rice and a vegetable side dish are included in some dishes. We were served by a chap we took to be the proprietor and he was friendly and helpful, providing a discreetly efficient and prompt service. We would certainly visit again, despite the huge choice of attractive-looking restaurants in Amsterdam.

I thought the food was very good: chutneys were fantastic, very good pappadom and the shrimp curry was delish.
The service was kinda slow but our server was pretty friendly.

Very satisfying dinner in this spot just off the busy Leidseplein intersection. Food, décor, and music are authentic if not all perfectly charming. Waiters a bit abrupt if efficient. Dishes -- onion bhaji appetizer and saag allo (spinach with potatoes) -- were delicious.
