We went for an early supper. The restaurant was not busy at all, but it appeared it had a lot of take-out orders. We had lamb korma and butter chicken; they were both very tasty, and the naan was very good. Service was prompt and professional.

Decided to use a Groupon for an early dinner, since we were in the vicinity. We like Indian cusine, and this plase did not disappoint. We ordered one of the Meals for 2, which included Muligatawny soup, two entrees, one beef and one chicken (both were fork tender), a vegetable dish with potato and cauliflower, a plate of rice, Nan,...

Nice people, clean and comfortable place in a great Glebe walkable location. Definitely worth trying for the buffet but more choice for a carnivore than a herbivore like me. Very helpful and obliging staff and inexpensive. Will return.

This place is absolutely terrible!! I love Indian cuisine, but this is the worst I have ever endured. But it isn't just the food - it's the whole atmosphere. The owners are rude and unfriendly, and you get the distinct impression that you are being 'scammed' somehow. I will certainly never go there again!!

We thought we'd try the Glebe Indian Cuisine out when we saw the Groupon offer as it's a restaurant in our neighborhood that we had not yet discovered and we very much enjoy Indian cuisine. The food was 'good', pricy for what you got though. We purchased a couple of plates to share. A mixed Tandoori plate that cost 21.99... More

Our dinner started very well with a delightful, flavourful lentil soup, but the main meal was very disappointing, the curry was too sweet and tiki masala unrecognizable. The waitress seemed uninterested and bored, we won't be back.

This is a spin-off of the Mukut restaurant and it is identical to its parent in every way.That is high praise. What makes these two restaurants particularly special are the parsee dishes.

There was 2 of us for dinner. The food was good, but unremarkable. Spices were very low key - everything just melding together. We found it very expensive for the dishes, and portion sizes were not generous. It was not busy - we were 1 of 2 couples in the restaurant on Saturday night at 7pm in June.

We went twice using Groupons. The servers were friendly and the spicy dishes (such as the vindaloo) very spicy and tasty. Everything was good, and including a good tip the total cost was under $40 for the two of us.

Visited with the family on the basis of recommendation of friends who said the Buffet was very good. Except for the onion Baji (really good), all was just so so. All the meat dishes had big chunks of potato in them, there was a touch of sweetness to everything and the Madras, Vandaloo, Aloo all seemed to have the same... More
