This place does not come across as a happening one, but the food is superb. We got the most authentic butter chicken there and on top of that there was complementary sabzi and rice. Overall experience was superb.

A small but very nice Indian eatery in the heart of Amsterdam. We ordered vegetarian stuff like Bhindi, Palak, Dal etc. Very fresh ingredients with original Indian spices and preparation. Better north Indian food than most eateries in India. Highly recommended .

After watching the very sweaty, harassed and over-worked waiter wipe his brow multiple times with the same tea towel that he was polishing/dusting off plates before serving/presenting dishes to customers I decided not to stay-too risky for me.Food maybe very good but not a place...More

Popped in on a Friday night and lucky to get a table as it is small and looked to be popular with tourists and locals. Food was good quality, plenty of spices and good value compared to some other local establishments. Clearly a family run...More
