“Horrible Case of Racial Profiling”
Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

We were walking around Leidseplein square in search of a decent Indian restaurant and found this one according to our budget and liking. We entered this place but were refused entry on grounds that they operated only on prior reservations. We saw that there were a few tables empty and were quite puzzled. We stood outside for a few more minutes when we saw a local couple walk in just like us and they were given a table. I realised there was something wrong maybe because we were Indians. When i went into the restaurant again to challenge him, he was dumbfounded and had no answer. Instead he offered us a table 1 hour later. We said we werent interested and walked into another neighbouring Indian restaurant Maurya. Please try this place at your own discretion.

“Delicious food”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

A small Indian restaurant near Leidseplein. Although the atmosphere is a little bit like a living room, the food is really tasteful and prices are very affordable. We have been going here for ten years and never had a bad meal. Love their chicken saag. Our children eat it too, since it's not that spicy.

Fair prices accompany a fair amount of salt in the dishes.

“A real find - limited selection, but true Indian family cooking”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Ended up at this Restaurant at Lange Leidsewars Straat, near Leidseplein, after checking several other Restaurants in the area, which were either full or had bad atmosphere (TV running).
Were very positively surprised by the quality of food - true family cooking!

“Great Cheap Restaurant”
Reviewed October 17, 2010

If you want truly authentic homemade Indian food, at a reasonable price, this is the place to go. Don't let the interior put you off. The food is great, and the price is right!
