The chocolate mousse dessert is amazing but what we ordered had way too much koriander and munt in it while i asked the waiter for a dish that had less of this. We had to wait pretty long for our food as well and its not cheap

Frustrating to get there after booking through Tripadvisor to be told, at 9.30pm on a Friday night, we were too late to be able to choose a starter. And then our first choice of wine not available. Service was extremely courteous (even when telling you what you didn't want to hear) and the food we did have was superb. Great combination of tastes and smells beautifully presented. No music and virtually empty when we were there so a little lacking in background ambiance but maybe get there earlier and it will have a little more energy about it.

Dear Sir, Madam,,


We had dinner on friday night. Three ladies on the table sharing two AH and a la carte menu.


All three had gasttic / abdominal issues after your meal.


We are of the opinion that you should compensatie that in a way.


Best Regards.


Met vriendelijk groet,

This was my second time at The Pepper Trail with my niece.
Great food again.
Price is perhaps slightly overpriced for the food you get, but the service you get makes it all worth it.

Super vriendelijke gastheren, goed eten, grote porties. Met 2e gratis actie prijs-kwaliteit oké, zonder actie erg duur.
Rustige, gezellige sfeer.

Payed a lot for little. Food wasn't amazing, service slow and atmosphere not inviting. In the beginning we were also wondering if we went the right place.

was craving of Indian food and reached Rotterdam after searched on google The Pepper Trail thought came in mind same usual indian food as I am having from last 6 years but when I stepped into pepper trail I was surprised first with the decor and than host the way she welcomed me,after seeing the decor I thought I wrongly stepped in???as restaurant is big and looked expensive but after seeing the menu and dishes discriptions my own thought made me wrong that
I Stepped into a right Indian restaurant and than my expectations were high.
I ordered fish tikka followed by lamb biryani and both were finger licking good i don't know I didn't ordered a naan but fish came along with naan flavoured carrom seeds naan was perfectly cooked and chefs recommendation of wine with food enhanced my food flavours...overall a wonderfull experience deserve to be a Michelin.

Superb authentic Indian cuisine, very friendly and attentive service and classy mod decor. Also fine wines suggested to compliment different dishes.
Will definitely return - the whole experience is well worth the slightly high price tag.

Lovely modern open design - quite a bit different from so many traditional Indian restaurants. We ordered the chef's menu of four items and were not disappointed. Curly papadoms with three kinds of dips arrived while we waited - followed by a complimentary broccoli from the grill. Started with a tomato shorta delicious fresh tomato taste, then excellent pieces of lamb and chicken from the grill. Main courses: butter chicken was superb - not too sweet - lovely seasoning and creamy. Lamb Rogan Josh - delicious. Basmati rice, various naan, and a salad to round things off. Lastly a delicious Indian dessert of mango kulfi. Helpings were generous - we could probably have had a third at our table and we would all have been nourished by two set meals.
Service was excellent - dishes were explained, and care being taken to advise us of the heat of dishes. We are both used to spicy curries so they brought us some additional 'seasoning' to add spice. I suspect many of my Dutch friends won't!
The bar area is inviting and next time we will allocate more time so we can start there with a pre-dinner drink.
In all a lovely evening and we will be going back to try a different part of the menu.
Restaurant
Thank you so much for your kind words. We aim on providing a unique Indian dining Xperience to all our guests and are glad that you enjoyed our Chef's dishes. We are sure your Dutch friends would also relish our cuisines as our Chef would happily oblige their requests regarding the heat level. We cannot wait to welcome you back to try a different menu of ours :)

After going through the HEERLIJK special menu we were quite excited to go to this restaurant and it did not disappoint. The Chicken Royal and Mango Kulfi was the highlight of our evening. The Chef surely has some magic in his hands. The flavors of the Chicken royal were just out of this world, will be coming back again to try the Lamb platter.
Restaurant
Thank you for your kind review, we look forward to delight you with our Lamb Platter :)

Walked in for a dinner yesterday at this restaurant. Warmly received by the staff. We asked for a specific table and they kindly asked us to wait at the bar area where they got us drinks. The food was sensational specially the Chicken Kalami Masala. The duck biryani also had a very tangy taste which was splendid. Definitely one of my favorite new restaurants. Will be back
Restaurant
We are glad you enjoyed your time at The Pepper Trail. Cannot wait to welcome you back :)

We came to the restaurant without an reservation but this was no problem. It was Saturday and the restaurant looked full. We had the rajistani menu and it was delicious! I also recommend the mango lassie. Thank you The Pepper Trail for a great evening. We will be back soon!

Recommended by a colleague of mine and we thank him for it. A little bit hidden on the first floor in the centrum of Rotterdam but a beautifull place. Food was exquisite. We told them that we had to leave in a certain time frame for a theater show and this was no problem. The restaurant was full. The second drink took a little bit longer but in an full restaurant this can happen. When I am back in Holland I will gladly return.
Restaurant
Dear Jayal, Thank-you for your kind words :) We look forward to your return

We are regular customers of this amazing restaurant and generally Chef Sanjay always welcomes us and makes our visit a delightful one but today surprisingly he was not in and yet his amazing team served us wonderfully. The Rajasthani Food Festival definitely reminded we spent in Udaipur and Jaipur in Rajasthan. Delicious food and amazing service as always. Keep the great job up. Look forward to our next visit
Restaurant
Dear Felix, thank you for your kind words. Our Chef makes sure that our team offers the same top class service to all our guests so even if he is not in, we aim on providing exceptional service all the time to every guest. We cannot wait to welcome you back :)

Generally I don't write reviews for any restaurant. Staff at The Pepper Trail insisted us to write a review about our experience. it was too big compared to other Indian restaurants. Lots of more options then just butter chicken and beef vindaloo. Even had various fish and prawn items. Tried the prawns and they were delicious. Chef definitely has his own special recipe and it seems very different compared to other chefs. Prices are a bit high compared to other Indian restaurants but the quality of the food and the service definitely makes the money worth the experience. Just had to wait a bit in between the meals but otherwise everything was 10/10. Will recommend to everyone.

Went in yesterday seeing a facebook post about Pepper Taj festival. Been here before twice and each time every festival is very different. Chef said that the food was cooked as how Mughlay dishes are cooked. The meat was very soft and the curry it was made in just blended perfectly. Even the fish was cooked with the right touch of spices. Definitely one of the best fish dish I have ever had. Hoping to come back soon for the next food festival
