Went here as close to our hotel and had read good reviews. It was a Friday night so decided to book. Glad we did as it was the last table in the place! Food was delicious. We had chicken pakora and the mixed starter grill to share. The pakora did not come with any sauce. We used the sauce from... More

Had a fantastic Indian meal here. Compared with the meals back home in the U.K., this was far superior. Very tasty, very reasonably priced and drinks were cheap also. Would highly recommend.

I visited Amsterdam in early February and booked to eat at Ganesha through Trip Adviser. We booked the table for 9:30pm. When we got there we were rushed to order our food and were told that the restaurant would close at 11pm even though on Trip Adviser we could have booked a table at 11:30pm. I asked for a break...

This restaurant is not exactly on the most interesting street in Amsterdam, but if you know where Central Station is, then it's easy to find. The food was excellent. I was thrilled because they served my fave dish--chicken dank--which I can't seem to find anywhere else. The interior is also lovely and very comfortable (though I don't recommend sitting near...

Visited for dinner on a Thursday night. The restaurant was busy but not packed. The menu had a good selection, pretty much the same as what you'd expect from an Indian restaurant in the UK. Service was friendly and efficient. Food arrived in good time. It was tasty but I've had better Indian food in the past. Bf had the... More

Really good food. A local told us that the best Dutch food was the Indian one. So if you want to get tasty Indian food, then go Ganesha. The family in charge of the restaurant was really pleasant. 20-25€ per person with dessert.

Nice place and food for a Dinner. It is close to Amsterdam Central station which is very convenient. Quality of Food is also good. Not completely authentic taste of Indian food because food is a bit less spicy to attract all types of customers.

We were at this restaurant last week for dinner. The staff were so helpful as we had a baby with us, one of the server's helped us bring our pram up the short fleet of staircase in front of the restaurant and seated us in a secluded area. As we were with a baby he thought that would help. The... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
