Attended this restaurant for dinner service with a friend. We were seated quickly and served by the lovely Josh. Beautiful decor and spacious seating so that you aren't crowded and excellent acoustics. Our server, Josh, was knowledgeable, accommodating and made excellent recommendations. We both changed our orders based on his suggestions and were not disappointed! We started with the quinoa... More

We eat here often for lunch, it is very consistent and there are lots of options. There are daily specials although we usually get the same thing as we have tried lots of items. Curry is my favourite and the lamb burger is good too!

During our recent stay in Saint John we received a recommendation for this restaurant by our hotel staff. I’m not sure if I’d call the offerings “authentic” Indian, but it does come very close. The restaurant is clean and the staff was very friendly. As for the food, I had a Saag Paneer and my wife had a different dish... More

I travel extensively. I grew up in the Saint John area. I am greatly pleased that upon returning home after many years to visit that the city has a restaurant with cultured food with unique blend of flavours.It is a truly world class restaurant.

The service is friendly, polite and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this if you are visiting, although you should make a reservation since it is no secret that this is... More

Four of us ate here Saturday evening for dinner. Parker was an excellent server and was very patient while we tried to settle on what we wanted. I had the Pad Thai and ordered it extra spicy. It was an incredible dish and was served very differently than I have had it before. Everyone tried mine and all said it... More

Typically always order a curry dish, Butter chicken is generally the best in southern NB; a modern take on a classic with wonderful chunks of chicken in a spicy but smooth butter curry. Generally always order take-out, last order was slightly off... the chicken pieces seemed grisly while the actual sauce seemed more spicy and less flavourful than normal. Hoping... More

The Indian food was amazing, but the cheesecake was out of this world! I have had a lot of cheesecake in my life and have never tasted anything like it!
