Butter chicken of een andere traditionele Indiase curry, gerechten uit de tandoori oven of overheerlijk Indiaas brood zoals naan of roti. De Indiase keuken heeft geweldige gerechten en Indiaas Restaurant Mayur serveert deze dishes al meer dan 30 jaar aan het Amsterdamse publiek. Pramod Sharma uit New Delhi begon dit restaurant op steenworp afstand van het Leidseplein in 1981 en heeft het stokje inmiddels overgedragen aan zijn zoon. Bij Mayur eet je in een romantische en mystieke setting, het is net alsof je in een sprookje van 1001 nacht terecht bent gekomen. Vanaf je tafel kun je zien hoe de chef achter het raam het naanbrood uit de speciale tandoori oven vist. Een avond bij Mayur is echt een Indiase beleving.

About the restaurant Indiaas Restaurant Mayur

Traditional North-Indian dishes for Dutch guests

After a few culinary internships in the United States, chef Pramod Sharma settled in Amsterdam during the late seventies. Here he realized his dream by opening Mayur in 1981, one of the first Indian restaurants in the Netherlands. His philosophy was simple: introducing traditional North-Indian dishes to his Dutch guests, in a warm athmosphere, like people "are dining with us at our home". Thirty four years later, now with help of the next generation, his philosophy for Mayur remains the same: serving great Indian food in a relaxing and beautiful setting, where the guests become part of the family. Namaste, and welcome to Mayur!

I've visited Amsterdam for work twice. Once in Feb 2019, twice this year.

We visited last year and it was an absolute delight, from the service to the beautiful smell and wonderful taste.

Everything was so good that we had to stop by this year and I will visit Mayur every time I am in town.

excellent food, wine, ambiance and service. the butter chicken is not to our taste though, we're the more savoury types, so the lamb, okra and tandoori were winners.

After reading the comments and being familiar with Indian food, I was expecting better than what we had. We took the tasting menu, we were not disappointed though but some of the dishes were not so tasty. I have eaten much better for far less money in Baltis in the UK for instance. I found it ridiculously expensive. Service was good and welcoming.

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and ambiance, friendly staff.


In all honesty, I had higher expectations considering the high price tags as well as the reviews I have read. The food tasted good, it was surely nice, but definitely was not "something special" to me, no "wow" effect. As to the portions; too little for what you pay for (it is not about the money, I can afford to pay more....)


No, I would not visit again.

Flawless. For Indian food this is the place to be. Definitely upmarket. Great athmosfere. We had the menu with starters from the Tandoori kitchen followed by lamb and mostly chicken curries. The Ristling paired nicely. Top experience.

Heard so Much about Mayur but never got the chance to visit! I must say after 39 years of being open Mayur does rock it. Food is lovely. Service is Great and the interior is classy. A world class establishment. Will be on my shortlist.

Excellent service & very professional for an Indian restaurant, if I may say so. Tasteless food & extremely expensive wine & spirits. All in all, a very disappointing experience, not t be repeated.

The ambience was great and very authentic. But the food didn't live up to the high quality of the decor - it wasn't as flavoursome as we were expecting. The prices didn't correspond to the portion sizes.
