Balti House

About Us

Balti House opened its doors in 1997 and was the first to introduce Amsterdam to the original Balti dishes. Balti refers to a Northwestern Indian curry dish from the Kashmir province, alongside these dishes you will find a very extensive menu with choices that include not only the Indian kitchen, but the Bengal and Pakistani kitchen as well.

We offer a wide selection of Tandoori dishes, meat and fish specials, curry dishes and of course we serve very tasty vegetarian dishes.

Our restaurant has build a good reputation and is well known amongst the British society of Amsterdam. We eagerly anticipate our regular customers each week who know how to appreciate our cuisine and friendly staff.

Specialty 3: Balti

These traditional dishes are originated from Northwestern India and Pakistan. Typical ingredients like onions, fresh garlic, paprika and special spices from the region make for the legendary Balti taste.

These dishes are served with yellow saffron rice in a bouquet of Indian herbs with or without almonds and a mix of fresh vegetables.

Specialty 4: Vindaloo

Chicken filet or lamb meat in a madras-curry which contains a lot of ginger, garlic and black pepper: Very hot !

We have been coming here since the opening and each time we are impressed by the delicious food, friendly staff and the nice atmosphere. We live in Limburg now but still regularly dine here when we are in Amsterdam, its always a joy to dine at Balti House!


We decided on a single menu for 2 persons: delicious soup with a main course consisting of tandoori, lamb and butter chicken, especially the first 2 were delicious. The staff was very friendly and the price / quality match each other well. We will surely return.
