Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I would’ve loved to give the restaurant 5 stars. The food was absolutely incredible, but the service was really unfortunate. This place was highly recommended online via Reddit, and we’re big foodies so we were excited to try this place out. What seemed to be...the owner is the place was friendly with every table, chatting away, asking about their meal etc. He blatantly walked by our table numerous of times, not checking in on us even once, yet was very friendly to every other table of non Americans. We felt a little discriminated against because of this. Luckily the food was so good, it trumped me leaving a 1-3 star review. If you’re American, don’t come here and expect friendly service, you won’t receive it, but the food is lovely. This was the worst customer experience we had in Amsterdam by far. As a fellow business owner, the disrespect to people who’re supporting your business (when’s there’s many others we could’ve spent our & at), is very disheartening. We’re all human, once race, and we’re incredibly polite and friendly, so to be treated like dirt here was really a hard pill to swallow.More

Great location right next to Paradiso. Very warm welcome and quickly seated and drinks order taken and nibbles. The cuisine is very interesting. We had Savoury dumplings to start then into the more traditional curry main courses and breads. Overall great food and will be...visiting this place again.More

We had a lovely dinner at this restaurant. It was a bit crowded when we were there, but the staff handled it pefectly. My wife and I had both the 3 course vegetarian menu and it was really delicious.

We loved this restaurant. Clearly a family effort, with a wide variety of Tibetan and Indian foods. We enjoyed the vegetarian options, as well as the traditional meat meals. The restaurant is small, easily accessible and friendly.

With so many Indian and Nepalese restaurants squeezed into a few streets it’s hard to make a good decision. After wandering around we landed on this place. When we first arrived there were plenty of tables and by the time we left there was a...line of hungry people eyeing our table. The menu is divided into Nepalese and Indian dishes. We chose the vegetable dumplings, eggplant and chicken. All were delicious and filling. We had enough leftovers for another meal.More

The food is bang on excellent. Its like eating in someone’s traditional kitchen. If you come to amsterdam eat at this kind of places instead of burgers and fries and stuff like that. You won’t regret it.

Terrific central Asian food prepared with care. We had both Tandoori and Nepalese dishes that were excellent. Given the quantity and quality of the food, it is fairly priced. The ambience is that of a neighborhood restaurant - small, cozy and friendly service. Once again...Trip Advisor reviewers are on the money! Make reservations- it is popular!More
