I’ve walked passed this restaurant on numerous occasions whilst visiting Amsterdam but have never really noticed it as it’s up a few steps rather than being directly at street level. Don’t be put off by the typical ‘touristy-style’ restaurant sign outside, it doesn’t reflect on the delights inside. It wasn’t a particularly busy Friday evening when we visited so we chose to dine upstairs. The décor is quite modern and the restaurant has a good vibe about it. For starters we chose the vegetable samosa, onion bhaji and seekh kebab. I have to say, the onion bhaji was a fantastic choice – quite possibly the most delicious onion bhaji I have ever eaten! The pastry on the samosa was quite thick which made it taste a bit dry and the seekh kebab was nice but not outstanding.
For main course we chose chicken balti, chicken karahi and the chicken madras. Be warned, they don’t scrimp on the spices here so if you prefer a mild curry, check with the waiter first! The karahi was very, very hot – perhaps a bit too much for my taste but if you like a hot curry, this is the place. The balti was incredibly tasty and the madras, as you’d expect, very hot but also very good. They certainly know how to do a good curry.
The waiter service was brilliant and they were all extremely polite and happy to help. We had a deal via Groupon but I would definitely visit here again and be happy to pay full price.
