    Food really good. All our Chickens (Tandori,Butter curry, Masala curry) were delicious and not too spicy as asked. Staff was really gentle and focused on the needs of every of us. I loved the birthday celebration with lights and music. I'll probably go there for my Brithday after this.

    The ambience of the restaurant is really good! Service was okay. But it all goes downhill from there. Our starters (momos) were served to us cold. The sauce accompanying the momos is supposed to be spicy, but it wasn't at all spicy. The chicken in the main curry dish was really dry, and the food in general was very bland. Some requests we made regarding the food were denied because it was "too busy". Also, it's very expensive for what you get. You can eat much better Indian food for half the price elsewhere in Amsterdam. Overall, quite disappointing, because we read really good reviews here.

    Really good food in pleasant atmosphere. Price of the menu was rather high for a pre-set menu.

    The table reservation worked very well. We were only in Amsterdam for three days and even went back to Ashoka because the food was great. Excellent spices, everything of very good quality and extremely tasty. We had Paneer and Chicken Tandoori, both of which were excellent. If we come to Amsterdam again, we will go back.

    The menu was limited in terms of choice because of the Christmas arrangement.

    We came here for Christmas dinner and so glad we did!! Was perfect! Amazing food and service!! We will definitely return. The chickpea dish was so tasty and the appetizer samplers too. The veggie samosas and dumplings were my favorite and the South African sav blanc was crisp and delicious. Beautiful cozy decor and friendly people working there. Made us feel right at home, even with an energetic toddler all over the place.

    As an Indian, the food was good. Was flavorful and well-cooked. The prices of some items on the menu, however, is a little outrageous. Almost €4 for one Naan is a bit excessive. Service was good up to a certain point in our dining... Upon paying for the bill, we were asked for a tip instead of graciously waiting to receive one. As an establishment that does try its best to provide a nice dining experience, that really left a bad taste in my mouth. The food is good, however, some of the servers could benefit from a little more training. Simply a 4-star establishment.

    Food was flavorful and varied, with choices from different traditions. The chicken tikka with mint appetizer was tender and tasty. Chicken korma and Himalayan lamb were both excellent; only disappointment was that the channa masala was oversalted. Service was friendly and attentive but chaotic; there isn’t a stable waiter for the table so we alternately got asked multiple times about the same thing or temporarily forgotten. Nice atmosphere and convenient location. Will go back.

    Had an awesome evening at Ashoka Amsterdam. The food was prepared and the 3 course meal package was wholesome. More drinks with cocktail and mocktail varieties should be included. I was offered an out of the menu cocktail which I enjoyed.. people looking for authentic Indian cuisine must surely visit this place. The hospitality was good

    The Chicken and all other dishes were cooked well, but the flavours and seasoning could have been better! Also, not necessarily a bad point, but the waiting time was way too short. The service was very good.

    Everything was as expected (environment, friendliness, ...) but it took them 1h30 to bring the main course... and even if we made a special requirement for a mild spicy it was so hot that my wife could not eat

    The food used to be so much better. The starters and mains lacked flavor and portions were rather small ( I never through I would add salt to Indian dishes but over here I definitely needed to do so)

    I’ve eaten Indian food all over the world. Ashoka is really the best, most delicious of them all. I know, I know thats pretty high praise, but it’s true. Ahhh, and the service is friendly, welcoming and just right.
