I selected the chicken with coconut and curry sauce It was delicious. My friends went with the hot selections, lamb and chicken with lots of curry... More

Great option for vegetarians. Very clean and good staff. And no doubt very delicious food. The way they serve the food is very cool so that you can share it properly. One more good restaurant added to my Amsterdam next visit.

This is a Fabulous, authentic Indian restaurant and we loved it. I had the Dal Makhani and it was so creamy and melt in your mouth divine. My friend had the Chicken Tikki Tandoori which was perfectly cooked and subtly flavoured. Both meals just exceptional. Lovely attentive staff, great ambiance.

We are vegetarians from London and we found there to be a good variety and tasty too. The butter paneer masala was nice! Very reasonably priced and the restaurant was very busy.

Went here on my last night in Amsterdam and was very impressed with how tasty and authentic the food is. The staff were fantastic and friendly and helped us with directions as well as offer us a drink on the house. A really kind gesture and overall a very good experience.

My husband and I had fond memories of visit this restaurant, so we had to return on this trip as well. I have had a lot of Butter Chicken and this is by far the best place I have eaten this particular dish. I love tasting the butter part, the tomato base, the spices, every bite was rich and full...

Neighbourhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
