Started with Chicken Tiki, had garlic nan, lamb vindaloo, bas rice.....can't tell you how great this place was! Service was better here than the 5* restaraunt we are at last night! There is always 1 good Indian place in every major city, traveled from Boston and wishing we had a place this good in Harvard square!

Absolutely delicious! My mouth was in heaven as the food was so flavorful! Staff very friendly and helpful. You could see one of the chefs making the naan bread and tandoori behind glass which was a neat touch. Prices reasonable. I'm from Canada and I wish this place was near me because I know I will crave this restaurant!

We chose this restaurant by chance, but we were very lucky : There are lots of choice, either vegetarian or non vegetarian, you can find the usual, traditional Indian dishes, but also some chief's specialities. Each dish we ordered was delicious, full of flavour, and delicately spiced. The lassi mango were outstanding ! The service was very quick and kind,... More

One of the best Indian Food I had, and I can definitely vouch of their authentic Indian Taste. The Amritsari chole (chick peas) served was better than what we have in most of the restaurants in Delhi. The crispiness of the Tandoori Nan was just perfect. For Indians visiting Amsterdam , you can relish your own taste there. And for... More

I actually used Trip Advisor to choose between this restaurant and another one round the corner. The service was excellent and the food didn't disappoint either. I had my usual of lamb madras and it was nice and spicy as I'd expect. Portion size was good too. There was a decent selection on the menu and they gave us complimentary... More

We came some 15 minutes before the restaurant`s opening time, but were immediately invited to go in. The meal was great and very tasty and the possibility to choose the meal from... More

Large group of us went together. Prebooked a large table. Food is standard indian fare. Focusing on the tandoor. Tandoori chicken was good. Service slow over an hour to get main course. Restaurant about half full.

I went for the non veg Thali with a side of prawn pakora and asked for it spicy. The pakora was great, and the generous serving of naan with the Thali was perfect. The chicken in the curry was also so tender and had a lovely flavour. However the soup was very odd, and I didn't find the other curries... More
