Shah-jahan is a traditional Indian restaurant. The restaurant is styled to resemble authentic restaurants found in India. The interior is lush with plants and features many gold and red accents giving the interior a bright and vibrant look. Shah-jahan is well aware that Indian food has a reputation of being spicy, but most dishes can be made to cater to the guest's palate. That can be relatively mild or exceptionally hot for the more adventurous diner.

Shah-jahan's menu focuses on traditional Indian fare. Here you'll find onion bhajee, chicken chat, prawn tikka, fish tikka tandoori, lamb kurma and many other takes on the sizable menu. If diners don't want to order a la carte, there are pre-set sampler menus that can be ordered family-style

This place is amazing! It served the best Indian food I've ever had. The service was impeccable too. My friend's son was not feeling well so they made him a special bowl of chicken soup. Their kindness continued throughout our visit and I can't wait to return on my next trip to Amsterdam.

We walked by the night before & smelled the wonderful smells wafting out of the restaurant. We came the next night, and had a fantastic meal. The chicken tikka masala was great, the mixed grill was a huge winner, and the lamb vindaloo lived up to it’s 5-star spicy rating. We’re only in town for a week, and we’ll definitely go again before we leave.

Excellent food and one my clients forgot his bag and the owner ran down the street to return it to them.

They went back for more the next day!

Well done again and thank you.

For people who are so familiar with India cuisine, this place or any other Indian restaurant wouldn’t make much difference. They will be overall satisfied. However, folks who have experience with Indian cuisine will not find the food here interesting.

Service is good. When we informed our server that the lamb kebab was very dry, the chef came by and offered to make a new one. When that didn’t change, he offered to make another new dish. This gesture is well appreciated. Overall the staff is very friendly and service oriented.

That said, we will not return here again. Yet to find a good Indian restaurant in Amsterdam.

De voorgerechten waren heerlijk, de hoofdgerechten te romig en veel te zoet.
Bediening vriendelijk maar erg gehaast

The best Indian food I have ever eaten anywhere in the world including India.

On entering the restaurant we were greated by the aroma of spices and smells that tantalised our taste buds and the food did not disappoint. The food was cooked to perfection and the flavours and spices were inspiring.

The food was so good that we dinned there again the next night!!!

Unfortunately we didn't have a pleasant experience with this restaurant. When we arrived they denied us seating claiming that they don't know anything about OpenTable and therefore they haven't reserved any table for us. They told us that if we wanted we could come back in 45 minutes and see if by that time there was a table for us. We tried to look for another place to eat but unfortunately it was late Friday night and we didn't find anything. So we came back and they gave us a table 50 min later. The service was awful, slow and not caring. We had to ask several time for the same things, even the napkins. The food was pretty good but overall a very bad experience.
