    An excellent restaurant that I’ve been visiting for over 10 years. A number of favourite dishes including the chicken tikka tandoori and madras. Service is personal and friendly. My favourite restaurant in Amsterdam.

    It is always a terrific experience at Shah Jahan! We live in the neighborhood so have been there many times. The food is terrific and the service is very nice. They are happy to turn up the spice level if you like it hot! The food selection is amazing with many vegetarian options, and the quality is top notch! Always my go-to place for Indian cuisine.

    The hot food was excellent. The side salad rather rudimentary (cut tomato, iceberg lettuce, raw onion, cucumber). Could make this far more appetizing! Friendly service and helpful. Music quite loud and jarring. Prefer quiet when eating (or soft loung music) but this is personal preference!

    We had dinner at Shah Jahan in Oct 2022 while visiting Amsterdam, and it was the best meal we had on our entire trip (even after 10 days in London and Dublin!). The set meals were a great value and a nice way to get a sampling of various dishes. We ordered two different sets (which was enough to feed at least 3 people) — our favorites were the palak paneer (spinach with paneer cheese) and the chicken tikka masala, but everything was truly fabulous. Mango lassis were delicious too — not too sweet and good yogurt flavor. If we lived in Amsterdam this would be a go-to spot for us. Service was friendly and attentive. We made a reservation for 8pm on a Tuesday night and were glad we did — it was packed when we got there, which is always a sign of a great restaurant. Highly recommend!

    This was not only the best Indian food but really the best meal we have had in a long time. The flavors in everything were delicious, my husband loved the soup. It was also very reasonably priced.

    Small restaurant so make a reservation on busy days like Saturday. Family owned, the food was delicious and served very fresh. The space was very crowded and small so just know that going in. Definetly will go again.

    The Seafood and Chicken we had were delicious, definitely a 5/5. Truthfully service was 2/5. However since we were so happy with the meal I am hoping they were just having a bad day so I rated them 4/5. Even though service was lacking, since the food was so good we would return. Hopefully again they were just having a bad day and the service will be better the next time we return,
