Good and authentic indian food, reasonably priced :) It's a family run restaurant with great atmosphere. I found it by accident while strolling around Amsterdam.

The prawns, the rice, the beer, the cook, the tea, all were Indian and the food at least was deliciously spicy. Well located, nice staff, golden light in the sunset. Very satisfied.

I went here with a group of coworkers about seven of us. The place was a bit small but we sat outside. The food is simply the best Indian food ever and the garlic naan is the best naan I have ever had. I highly recommend this place!! Courteous and nice staff and family run place. I love it!

We missed our regular Indian food back home. For us, we ordered 1-main course with lamb, comes with rice & salad. And 2 sides- chicken & eggplant and a plain naan. Delicious and to finish off with a mango lassi.

Service was hilarious. Owner was on his own in the restaurant. We think his sister was cooking and she did a great job. Owner took orders and advised kitchen... More

Mom is in the kitchen, the very observant son is velcoming us and guiding through the menu, shortly after bringing the drinks we ordered, waiting only a very short time to get the perfectly cooked food - we can warmly recommend this restaurant :-)
