Authentic bengali food the first impression you get is being in kolkata, this Rēsṭurēnṭa is most likely run by bangladeshis. all the high end Bengali restaurants, with their heavy/over-flavoured/unauthentic dishes need to take a lesson in cooking from this place. to me Bong food is all about subtlety, and heightened flavours from imaginative and unusual combinations of ingredients, and this place totally delivers. come here to remember and relish the cooking of your ma, thakuma, didima, mashis and pishis. Ask Sanje to make faal, it is amazing. GooglePlace - March 2018

Restaurant owners son was constantly checking out my batty which made me feel hot under the collar. I ordered a Vindaloo which was luckily no way near as hot as we have it here in Amrica. Just as well as I was starting to sweat about potentially getting rear ended. I must say the owners were very friendly towards me even when I was ordering bags full chilli to spice up my Vindaloo. The restaurant was very dated, it reminded of a run down back street eatery in the west slums of Dhaka. Having said that Dhaka does a cracking Vindaloo. The restaurant meal is expensive for European standards but I guess that's because a) the exchange rate from taka is not good and b) they have to cover the costs of takeaway packaging also. The naan was ok but I would have preferred to have eggs rather than yogurt as I come out in an awful rash in the nether regions. I fancied a lemonade but the waiter did look at me funny when I told him as long as it's not sprite as it messes with my waterworks something rotten. Before I visited the restaurant I attended a yoga calming session at the local gym, just to ensure my karma was in a good place as Sanjay the son is able to pick up on negative energy customers. Having said all this I think the customers make the restaurant a great atmosphere with lots of honest and trustworthy punters. I would eat here again should I be on a night out in Amsterdam after downing a barrel load of beer as the location is fantastic for stumbling in from the Leidseplein when tipsy and of course Sanjay makes you feal warm and welcome!

I ordered Vendalo, but all what I did test was Chilli..., I was warned that they make it UK-style. I'm a pretty well-seasoned chilihead, but I've had trouble finishing vindaloos here. So be careful when you order Vendaloo here. See you next time GooglePlace - March 2018

The food was decent in taste. The hospitality of the waiters was really good. Three stars only because the food wasn't superlative in taste. GooglePlace - December 2017
