Best Indian restaurant in Rotterdam! Highly recommended.
The excellent food reminds us of our trips to (North) India. It’s a bit pricy, but worth it.
Service is very friendly and helpful. I announced we went there to celebrate. At the end of the meal a very pleasant and thoughtful surprise desert appeared :)
Our favorite dishes:
-Mango Paneer Tikka (veg. starter)
-Gilafi Lamb Seekh Kabab (starter)
-Butter Chicken
-Dahl Makhani
-Peshwari Naan

Excellent curry! Love the atmosphere of the restaurant and the staff is so kind and professional. Just order a couple of dishes to share with your group, so you can taste everything. For side dishes I recommend the blue cheese naan and some rice for the table! When ordering drinks: definitely get the mango lassie. It is delicious. Cannot get enough of this restaurant!

it was wonderful from start to finish. The maitre provided us with the drinks menu immediately and the dishes that we ordered were beautifully cooked and presented. Highly recommend the butter chicken, mango cheese starter and the blue cheese naan. Rest of the naan bread was also really good, arriving at the table hot and fragrant.

Really really cozy restaurant with good atmosphere. Our waiters were kind and attentive, and the menu had a lot of nice options. I loved the prawn curry. Also the naan bread with garlic had a lot of flavor. It was our first time in an indian restaurant. Complements to the way the amuse and the food is spiced! Thank you for the lovely evening and your hospitality. The restaurant is spacious and super central. Highly recommended

Lovely restaurant with real authentic Indian food. A little pricey but it is worth it, if you like Indian food this one is a must!

They took initiative to surprise me with a free desert and a nice candle flare when they found out it was my birthday :-)

No question, very good service and clean and neat! But I have tasted Indian food in this level for much less of a price. So as a foodie lover I won’t go there back as often cause it’s way too pricy for the food offered. Small dishes overal. but in general the food was very good.

The food was great, and the atmosphere nice. We arrived at 20h, and were having a good time, but then quite abruptly we got a bill at 22h, a few min after finishing our main course. We still had drinks left in our glasses, etc. And we were not offered a dessert. And the staff switched the music off. The whole thing was a bit odd for a Friday night. A real pity, as they serve great food in a good ambience.
Restaurant
Dear Guest,

Thanks for loving the food and leaving positive feedback. We apologise if you felt uncomfortable with us giving the bill while you were still having your drinks, but the server always go around the tables asking for the last round as our kitchen closes at 21:30. If there are no food or drinks order then we do provide the guest with the bill as we close the restaurant at 22:00 hours.

Once again sorry for any inconvenience and we look forward to seeing you again.

Best regards
The Pepper Trail

The food was very delicious and we got it very fast, and staff went beyond my expectations! They did their best to make us enjoy our evening.
The place when we arrived was not very busy, but after around 30 minutes, few groups of people have joined and the atmosphere turned to be amazing! Ah yes, the music they play there, boosted our journey in the Indian cuisine .
I would definitely come back there and I recommend this restaurant to everyone!

Had the 5-course menu. Prices were a bit steep but the curries were nice! I'd advice to have dishes served on more culinary plates. Other than that it was overall quiet good.

Thanks for the compliments on the food and advise on the plates. We will try our best to make some changes.

Pepper trails has been one if the Indian restaurant in Rotterdam that i would love to visit whenever given a chance as the every dish served here is outstanding with a good ambience and atmosphere.However the last visit to the restaurant wasn’t that pleasant. After we ordered our drinks it took 1 hour 20 mins for the restaurant to serve our first starter which I am pretty sure cannot be ignored. Upon asking the reason we were told that an unexpected visit of a group of 20 people caused the delay but bearing in mind that it was weekend, restaurant should be well prepared for it and shouldn’t be understaffed. We were provided with complimentary drinks to compensate the delay however our mood was already spoiled so it doesn’t help. I do not have any complaints about food as it has always has been amazing and heavenly to my palates but it was the service which was the spoiler.
Restaurant
Dear Guest,

Thanks for relishing our food and we do apologise for the long wait. We always prepare and plan the kitchen based on number of bookings and we never cook in advance to avoid any wastage or serving the same food again the next day. Hence when we had a group of 20 people walk-in, it delayed the service.

Hope we will get to see you again soon.

Best regards
The Pepper Trail
