It was a pleasant surprise for us to see an Indian restaurant opposite to our hotel. The hotel is big one. I think the capacity would be around 75-80. It also has typical Amsterdam like outside seating arrangement. The veg and non-veg menu is good....More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
