    It was clear that business had to be made. They forced us to choose quickly what to eat, practically took my boyfriend's plate out of his hands when he was eating his desert. Disappointed ! On New Year's Eve !

    Average Indian restaurant. Much better near by. Poor/pushy service. Waitress brought out more dishes even after we told her no. They will not honor the 30% unless you ask multiple times, come on….

    Easily the best Indian food in Amsterdam, not to mention charming owners and staff.

    Très bonne adresse, pour 30€, boissons comprises, vous faites un bon repas copieux. A very good spot to know in A'dam. Dishes are unbeleviable, service is perfect and the rate of quality and price is more than worthy even with drinks.

    Delicious food but the servers were not warm or welcoming at all. They seemed angry for no reason at us and we all felt it. We enjoyed our meal but didn’t feel any special treatment or service.

    The staff does not understand how the reservation system works, and when you reconfirm 5 hours before the time, they think that in that moment you did the reservation. So for them it is too late and they have already reserved your table, which the system has allowed you to reserve. The boss was not for the job but the other boss handled the situation properly and it was resolved. We ordered two different menus, which shared certain meats. They combined both menus and served us the amount of meat from a menu for one person only and they charged us both. Most of the meat were bones and almost not cooked. There are definitely better options 20 meters away…

    Quite expensive for the food and drinks - 5.50eur for a pint of beer. Around 20 euros per dish of curry. The service was ok and the ambience was mediocre. 50 euros to eat for one person.

    Absolute disillusion. Like others say here, they don’t give you the 30% and they come with a story that at the Fork they don’t changed it and they need to pay 3 euro per person bla bla bla and put the consequence of this at the customer. It is via the Fork that I found this table so they need to pay the Fork for our reservation, simple as that. That would be honest and fair. They also don’t give you a receipt, so provably they don’t pay taxes. Service is mega ultra rude. Absolute no go.

    When we arrived at Shiva for our reservation, we were told we only have an hour to eat. I understand it was New Year’s Eve and they want to seat as many people as possible, but my wife and I felt rushed. The food was really good, but I was frustrated with the service.

    Booked through The Fork with 50% off. The staff man told us we have to order a starter, main dish and desert, because we have made the reservation via TheFork and will receive the discount (on the main dish). Quality of the dishes was average, but nothing to write home about, definitely not mind-blowing. The starters were just fine. Spicy sauce with the papadum was inedible hot. The Lassi mango and the cappuccino were also very mediocre. The owner serving was friendly but his wife was very curt and businesslike. Bill was very unclear, also a pity that they 'forgot' the discount from TheFork. The total price for 2 people, starters and main dish was E75,- and was not completely worth it. Unfortunately, the whole was a bit disappointing and not worth repeating.

    We chose a menu in order to taste different things. Good quality. Vegetables with curry were top. We wait a little bit more than expected. Not 100% sure of the final bill

    This well-situated restaurant in the centre of Amsterdam has a clean and tidy atmosphere and a warm and welcoming staff.. The layout of the interior and tables is tasteful and the well decorations appealing. The food is excellent with a wide range of dishes arranged on attractive serving dishes.

    Cosy vibe in the restaurant, flavorful and tasty food (really liked the cheese naan and the homemade deserts) and also welcoming service. the only thing that we didn't like was that food portions were relatively small for the price.

    Great place right in the center with good quality Indian dishes. We were with quite a large group but service was fast. the staff advised us to get a table full of vegetarian dishes to share which tasted great and were very reasonably priced. Will Come back.

    There are MANY Indian restaurants in Amsterdam, but we have been disappointed at other places so we tried Shiva which was recommended to us. It was a very good choice and we will certainly come back.

  • Stephen H.1 review

    27 August 2021


    The food was actually quite good, said from someone who has eaten Indian many times including in various parts of India However 2 major points to state 1. we arrived at 730 PM and had our starters at 830, so while good we had to wait a long time. Main courses arrived at 915….again food good and certainly authentic 2. the restaurant being long and a bit narrow when busy becomes very very noisy, piry really The staff were very friendly but the really need to fix at least point 1 above Value for money: borderline as is a little expensive but saying that if you want decent food in Amsterdam prepare to pay London-like prices

    The food was very good and the waitress was also kind to us. Service was quick, good portions very accessible prices especially for such a central location. I have gone to this restaurant a few times and it is one of the best in Amsterdam.
