Just came back from dinner at Balti. The garlic nan was as light as a cloud. The peas and potatoes delicious. Everything was fresh. Good range of dishes. You won't go wrong eating at Balti.

This restaurant has dishes from Bangladesh and India. I went there with some friends, among them, a friend from Bangladesh, which knew the place very well. We had the best hints possible from her to order our dishes. The food was really good and the staff very friendly. They know very well their business and can advise properly the costumers.... More

The Balti house is the best indian food i have had in the Netherlands. Being from the UK, I can safely say its one of the best I have ever had. The pictures do not do this place justice because not only is the food amazing, the staff are incredibly friendly and the restaurant is warm, cosy and intimate. Whether... More

We ordered quite a few dishes such as chicken tikka, chicken butter masala, biryani, naan bread and some vegetarian dish. All the items were exquisite.... More

We went here to try indian food last month. The food was good and service too. I liked the naan and chicken tikka masala. I would expect food to be more spicy next time

Looked a previous reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to try this restaurant out. Really nice food and in quite reasonably priced too. I would definitely recommend it. The curries were very tasty, the mixed grill very big :-) the only minor gripe is that it could have been spicier; more chilli. All in all though, very nice and would go... More

The food is well prepared. You can order couple dishes and share it with your friends. However I would imagine the dishes to be more spicy.

I'm a regular at this gem of an Indian restaurant; go there at least twice a month. I'd like to keep it a secret so please don't go there. Their specialty is North Indian cuisine with lots of curries and great nan bread. Each dish is very distinct and different from the others. Not like other restaurants where only the... More

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.
