We returned here recently, and were suitably impressed again. The staff were once again great, and the food was superb. Caters for both vegetarians and gluten free diets!

The quality of food is good but not very authentic. Portions are very small when compared to the price and other Indian restaurants. The restaurant is busy most of the time as it is located in good location (De Pijp) but not packed. Service was friendly and efficient.

After a long day out we just wanted a hot meal. Staff took a long time to get us drinks and take our order (about 9pm on a Friday). Restaurant wasn't full, most people were ending their meals.

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.
