    Very tasty food balancing spice with heat. Impressed with service which was friendly but also very logically structured with apperatif menu brought first, knowledgeable advice on heat content which helped making the right choice. Enjoyed our evening there.

    Best Indian and Nepalese food Ive had in town in years. Killer butter chicken. The Tikka Massalas slay the house down boots. Owners are friendly, place is clean, cosy and quite modern. Plenty space, covid safe and great food on top of it. Keep it up guys, will come back.

    I went for the second time along with my freind on my recommendation . The staff was very welcoming and the atmosphere was very good but the food quality was not as good as experienced last time. Mine & my frnds stomach got upset. I took some takeaway also & after coming home i took medicine and got fine and late night when i again ate takeaway food my stomach got upset again.and also the taste felt not like authentic Indian taste, I feel that to attract some international clients the food ia somehow made dutch indian style and is no more authentic Indian

    Food was awesome! Lovely staff & great atmosphere. We were having a lovely meal outside, and even though it started raining like crazy, the staff was right there to make sure we were okay & to move us inside. Would definitely recommend.

    This restaurant is a gem in Amsterdam! The food was excellent and the staff very friendly! However, the service was a little too fast (dishes arrived 5 minutes after ordered). But I will definitely come back soon!

    Very nice Nepalese and Indian restaurant close to our house, which we actually didn't notice before. My wife had a Nepalese mixed menu, which was very nice, balanced in spices and a huge variety of food (chicken, lamb, lentils, baby mango chutney, rice and more). My son took the mixed tandoori, also a variety of meats and shrimp, with a lentil sauce on the side. Not spicy, but rich in taste. I had the lamb madras, which was wonderful and not that burning spicy, so perfect for lunch. A variety of naans completed the dishes. The setting is very beautiful, a nice and tastefully decorated old warehouse, which directly gave us a warm and cozy feeling like being at home. Service was very well, our waiter from Nepal was very explanatory and polite, They even offered us free drinks of choice after paying the bill. Well worth repeating!

    I have been to Ashoka several times in the past year and I was thoroughly impressed. Not only is the quality of food excellent, but the wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable. The cocktails are amazing as well, so this made the experience complete. I plan on going back every time I visit Amsterdam and I highly recommend it. Just a side not, I have gone to several popular restaurants with good ratings and was so disappointed. Ashoka stands high above the rest

    Lovely restaurant with amazing service! The food was very diverse and nicely decorated. The shared menu had plenty of dishes, but I believe a better combination for nepal/indian cuisinestarters should be available.

    The food is really good and the servers very kind! The only disadvantage was that they have receipt printer which makes a lot of noise. But again the food is excellent!
