Service was so friendly and warm. Restaurant was small but comfortable, maybe tables could be little bigger. Food was hot, spicy and delicious. If you wanna eat Indians food in Amsterdam, go to this restaurant.

I come here a lot, very friendly staff and great authentic food. They also makes things off the menu, like a Balti. It's tiny though so make sure to book.

If I could give 4.5 stars, I would. Great mixed starter platter - hot & delicious. Had 4 main courses, all were very good. Naan bread was light and fluffy. Would become one of our regular restaurants, if we lived here. Friendly service.

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
