“Not worth it”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday night; it smelled like wet dogs and only three tables were occupied. Regardless, it took 25 minutes for our appetizers to show up.
Stay away from the Vindaloo: it's excruciatingly hot even though we can handle hot and spicy food. At the end of the dinner, the waiter dropped the whole box with breath fresheners all over my cousin: no apology whatsoever...
There are plenty of decent Indian restaurants in Almere, this is not one of them...

“Decent Indian food with a nice decor”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

During this visit to Holland got a chance to stay in Almere hotel. On the advice of the staff visited this Indian restaurant. A decent indian restaurant with a nice decor and friendly service. The vegetarian thali was a very good combination of Indian dishes. The nan with garlic paste was also fantastic. I would go again if one more time in Almere.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

We had very nice evening at this restaurant on a Saturday evening. The food is very authentic and the service is friendly. The location must be very cool in the summer months. We will come back definitely.

“Super atmosphere and food”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This restaurant was suggested by the staff of appolo hotel in almere. I have frequented this place regularly for a week and loved the ambiance, food and the service. Being frequent traveller I am well versed with a lot of kitchens and Indian kitchen is also one of them. Food with Payal is compared to food served in Delhi. For the rest there is a very little choice in this city for good restaurants.
