“Best place to have real Indian food in Haarlem”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

This place is very close to the Carlton Square, they have very friendly people in this hotel, nice presentation of food and most of all the taste is authentic.
It has been a while i am away from India, ate in many Indian restaurants but this place reminded me of home.
If you are looking for a nice place to have dinner, i recommend this place.

“Delicious curry...worth the wait”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

We knew we had a winner when it was so busy on a Tuesday night. Despite the large number of customers, our waitress was very charming and helpful. Highly recommend the saag chicken or saag lamb....maybe not the Indian wine.

“Slow service but good food”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

If your not starving or impatient, a nice restaurant with decent food. It takes the staff for ever to take an order and serve drinks and food. We like the food mainly because the dishes made containing chicken are made with chicken thighs, which is much better then filet (filet tends to be dry and though!). The food is not very spicy, but you can ask the cook to spice it up. Some languages barriers have to be crossed as part of the staff speaks/understands hardly any Dutch or English or speaks with a very heavy Indian accent.

“rude and arrogant staff!”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

We decided to step in here one evening because we genuinely like Indian cuisine. The restaurant was empty except for a table that was occupied by a group of people. When we entered no one even bothered telling us where we could sit so we decided to settle down on a table quite close to the exit. We took off our coats and looked around for someone to bring us a menu card. An arrogant man walked by, plopped the cards on the table and asked us what we wanted to drink. We requested that we look at the menu first and perhaps he could come back in 5 minutes. He never left the table, kept looking at us like we were not welcome at his restaurant. We decided to order two drinks and two starters to begin with. He looked at us and said, "if that's all you are going to order then you can't eat here!". I was rather taken aback and told him, we would order the main course once he got our starters but he refused to move and repeated rudely that he expected the bill at our table to be a certain amount and if we were not going to order now that we could leave! I have never been so insulted in my life! We have eaten at some really classy and upmarket places and this is not the kind of hospitality one expects from a restaurant. These people have a lot to learn about the hospitality business. The empty tables should have warned us I guess!
