This is a great choice for friends who want a relaxing Indian in Amsterdam. The food was tasty. A particular favourite of the group was the vegetable korma. A quiet hideaway from the hustle and bustle of elsewhere

Cold greasy papadums.. ordered Madras curry, lamb was mutton curry sauce full of chilli powder no flavour just full of chilli powder. Definitely not worth the money. Restaurant was more like a little cafe. Small and dingy. Stay away.

Was looking last minute for somewhere to eat and stumbled on this little diamond. Established since 1991 so knew we had to give it a go. Owner was friendly and service was great. Food was plentiful and flavourful and was served very promptly after ordering.

After a smorgasboard of European food, our tastebuds were longing for some Eastern spice and we found it at Samrat's. Small but with attentive service and excellent food (try their Vegetable Korma and fluffy Naan Bread) we were very satisfied.

Amazing meal. Really friendly service and the in laws paid. All in all a fantastic meal. Loved it. The food was really authentic and the onion chutney was Indian but lovely

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
