I actually used Trip Advisor to choose between this restaurant and another one round the corner. The service was excellent and the food didn't disappoint either. I had my usual of lamb madras and it was nice and spicy as I'd expect. Portion size was good too. There was a decent selection on the menu and they gave us complimentary... More

This restaurant was found by us occasionally and we decided to visit it and didn't regret. The atmosphere is quite good and the staff is friendly and helpful. We came some 15 minutes before the restaurant`s opening time, but were immediately invited to go in. The meal was great and very tasty and the possibility to choose the meal from... More

Large group of us went together. Prebooked a large table. Food is standard indian fare. Focusing on the tandoor. Tandoori chicken was good. Service slow over an hour to get main course. Restaurant about half full.

I went for the non veg Thali with a side of prawn pakora and asked for it spicy. The pakora was great, and the generous serving of naan with the Thali was perfect. The chicken in the curry was also so tender and had a lovely flavour. However the soup was very odd, and I didn't find the other curries... More

The food in this place is amazing. We were looking for some nice indian food, walked by this place, got in, and had a feast of flavours! We had the tourist menu advertised in the window, and the chicken coconut curry and it was yummy! The service and overall the experience was really nice.

I visited Amsterdam recently with very good friends of mine who I consider to be curry experts. We enjoyed our meals so much we dined again two nights later. Chicken Jalfrezi and Vindalo both excellent as were the poppadoms and garlic nans. Don't go for the onion Bhaji though as they come as onion rings. Good service as well, recommended.

This place is just off the main shopping street and from the outside doesn't look very appealing. But take a chance! The food is excellent and tastes like heaven. The service is okay but some of the staff didn't speak dutch only English, for a tourist that is not a problem but as a local I like to speak my... More

Due to next door indian restaurant being closed on Monday, I ended up in this restaurant only because they serve thali too. The thali was good, not that special but tasty and enough portions. Only the soup as a starter was a bit odd, better include a somosa. But not special enough to return, there are a lot more better... More

Good food and reasonably priced, especially for the area (Leidseplein). Pleasant staff but the service can be slow.
