Amidst a never ending strip of so called quote coffee houses did we find ourselves in this small and humble Indian restaurant. We were seated immediately but had to wait plus fifteen minutes for our starters. All was forgiven with the generous stack of poppadoms...More

Small traditional indian restaurant. Traditional dishes, very well prepared. Fair proces. Reservatie necessary, many times people had to be disapointed.

This place has made excellent curries for decades. Expect tasty and traditional food with a good and friendly service. Shame they don't have more kinds of naans on the menu. But overall very good dinner.

Went here on a Friday night - lovely restaurant and quite busy though it closes at about 10pm. Good food, very authentic and tasty!

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
