It seems the tactic of this restaurant is to not worry about the flavour and instead make the curriesover spicy. Easily the worst prawn puri I have ever had. And I am not a fussy person. It is probably the only prawn puri I have ever not liked. The waiting staff were rude to me when I asked for a... More

We had a nice time dining at Memories of India. This restaurant is in the hart of Amsterdam where parking is very difficult. But once you make it to the restaurant you are greeted with a warm welkome by very a friendly waitress. We had a reservation so we were led to good table in a nicely decorated room. We... More

Wonderful food and friendly staff. The great thing is that you can ask them to produce dishes that are not on menu and let yourself be surprised. I love coming here each time I visit Amsterdam. very centrally located close to Rembrandtplein

very relaxing, authentic Indian food, the kitchen is paying attention, the wine list could be improved, the lower class whines don't really deserve it. if you appreciate good Indian food, try it.

I and my husband visited this restaurant on my husbands official trip to Amsterdam last October. After a tough day at office, my husband craved for Tandoori Food. I suggested Memories of India as it was closeby to our Hotel. We were really happy with our decision to dine there and my hubby forgot all his fatigue. The hospitality was... More

We wanted a restaurant near to our hotel as it'd been a long day, fancied an Indian and this was the closest one and had good reviews. Arrived fairly early and there were only a few people in there, the waitress bluntly asked if we had a reservation, which we didn't, she then checked a sheet of paper and told... More

We have visited this restaurant many times over the years whilst under the management of a number of different owners and have always found the food to be extremely good but the service has often been sadly lacking. The past few visits however have been totally different. The current owners appear to have really 'upped their game' on the service... More

We booked a table for 7pm, no one came to take our order until 7.30, we had to keep asking to be served. Regardless of how nice the food is you will be left frustrated leaving this place. The table next to us was left for 1hr 20 mins and only one person seemed to be taking orders. There are... More
