The food here is consistently excellent. From the moment you are greeted at the door, you feel as though you belong! Polite and friendly wait staff serve you with grace. Superb food in a relaxed atmosphere. Authentic tandoori chicken.

This is a really nice restaurant run by wonderful people. They will default to preparing food quite mild, but are certainly happy to spice it up for you. They do a large takeout business, but the room is comfy to eat in, too, and usually quite quiet in the evening. A wide selection with good sized proportions. A couple of... More

Dine in or take out the food is always fabulous. Fresh and made to order. I like the Dupiaza but it's too mild for me so they spice it up perfectly. That's the best thing about this restaurant. They remember how you enjoy your food and spice it accordingly. They also have Newcastle Brown on tap which is AMAZING with... More

We have ordered take out from here several times and the quality of the food has always been very high. We do order a lot of chicken dishes and have found the meals to be better than many other Indian restaurants in KW. The Naan bread is delicious and freshly made. We often order dishes like butter chicken (but medium,... More

We love this restaurant and don't go often enough. The chicken tikka masala and mixed vegetable korma are two of our favourites. The service is friendly and attentive. We thought the food was delicious and authentic. Definitely a hidden gem for great Indian food in Waterloo!

Close to my workplace, been there for lunch few times. Not very authentic indian food but curry tastes differently good. Lunch special comes with chicken soup, chicken or lamb curry(with mushrooms in it) and you can choose either basmati rice or a Naan bread. Value for money. Service is okay not very friendly or either harsh. There is always an... More

I have been there twice for lunch as it is very close to my workplace. The first time I went there, ordered Chicken tikka masala and they served me almost raw chicken with gravy. I really wanted to give them another chance, so, went there second time. The restaurant was sort of busy and there were 3 old guys serving.... More

I so badly want to like this place since I have fond memories of eating here years ago when it had amazing owners who knew customer service at its finest & back then the food was top-notch, plentiful & fresh. Sadly, with current owners & staff this once shining gem of a restaurant is now a dull, cheap wanna be.... More
