Golden Temple

Utrechtsestraat 126

Amsterdam, 1017 VT

The kitschy lower level of this central city spot offers up just as much Middle Eastern flair as the dishes. Cushy couches packed with bright red pillows and murals of icons like the Taj Mahal set the scene for an entirely vegetarian menu that won't set you very far back. Coconut curries and other Middle Eastern specialties are the staples at Golden Temple, but the unexpected variety of global inspirations in meals like enchiladas and tuscan risotto make it a hit for everyone -- even the meat eaters.
