This was a nice change from trying to beat all the tourist crowds. Very authentic Indian food, we ordered butter chicken and lamb biriyani and both were delicious, as well as paratha. However, I ordered mild biryani, which was still very spicy, but I also...More

Wonderful experience from start to finish. Excellent service, charming small place. Every one of the vegetarian dishes we had were fresh and tasty, and we were smart to order spicyness=3 on the 1-5 scale.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
