About the restaurant Balraj

Decades of Indian tradition in Amsterdam

With 38 years this is the oldest Indian restaurant of Amsterdam! On the wall you see pictures of Ghandi, Vishnu and other wise people. In the narrow restaurant the owner Jasbir and his traditionally dressed wife indrawatie welcome you with open arms. They are specialised in curries, many vegetarian dishes and a lot milder like indian home-cooking. Real stand out dishes are the onion bhadji, butter chicken and indian rice pudding!

ordered vegan samosa and navrattan byriani. Although stated on the menu as medium spicy,.it was just very sweet, nothing additional that anyone could call medium spicy. I spent 2 months in India and almost all dishes there are spicy, or at least medium spicy. The indian kitchen uses many fresh spices and other outstanding ingredients, but i didn't find any of them in the dishes served in the restaurant. Also the vegan navrattan byriani was supposed to come with homemade cheese, I think I detected 1 tiny piece floating inside the sauce, but was hardly recognizable . The dall which was served with it, was without much taste as well. Overall I think the menu was overpriced, regarding the quality of the food. I probably should have gone for one of the meat dishes, but I am vegan and therefore thought Indian kitchen is a good choice,

Simply the best Indian in town. Usually we choose takeaway instead of eating in, the restaurant itself is a bit dated and cramped. Service is very upbeat and considerate. Excellent value as 2 portions easily feeds 3+ people, and if you are fan of the super spicy, these guys can deliver.
