At the end of the 70s, chef Pramod Sharma settled in beautiful Amsterdam. He could really put the experiences he had gained as an apprentice in his native town of New Delhi, and during his culinary internship in India and the United States, to use in the Dutch capital. After having worked at an already existing restaurant for a few years he fulfilled his dream in 1981: the opening of Mayur Indian Restaurant.

In the Netherlands, Sharma was a pioneer with his Indian restaurant. His philosophy was simple: introducing traditional North-Indian dishes to Dutch guests in the sort of warm atmosphere that makes them feel they are dining in his home. Now, some 40 years later, that philosophy has remained the same. Even now his son has become his number two at the restaurant, they aim to lead Mayur with the same philosophy: Indian food at a high level, relaxed in a magnificent setting where guests imagine themselves in India.

 Namaste, and welcome at Mayur!
