The food here was delicious, especially the chicken samosas. The person who served us was friendly, attentive, and helpful to the Indian food neophytes in our group. We liked the atmosphere too.

Memorable Indian dinner : crispy okra was heavenly. Vegetable curry packed with sweet potatoes cauliflower beans and more. Prawn biryani’s taste was sublime. Our expectations were high, based on Sidney restaurant, and it came through marvelous. Impressive!

Very poor. Couldn’t tell what mixed starters were - samosa made with shortcrust pastry ?! - just no ! Chicken tikka was awful - chicken lumps were like tasteless sponge. Basmati rice was cold and tasted strange and the Nan bread was just disgusting (the...waitress did take this off the bill). My husband did enjoy his lamb curry. We are Scottish and have lots of excellent Curry Houses across the country - this restaurant wouldn’t stay in business with the competition. Wouldn’t recommend.More

I have to say I think this is the BEST curry in Campbell River....Good size portions, nice ambience, clean restaurant, friendly staff!! Have been there 4 times now and always a fan! When you walk in and you SMELL the curry you know it's going...to be a good meal. First time my gf and I visited they were serving another table a meal on a sizzling metal platter. Pretty cool. Only thing I've not been a fan of is their homemade mango ice cream. I asked if it was "cream" based and told yes only to learn it's more a frozen puree. Not my cup of tea but that's so minor lol! Will definitely try to visit on my next visit to CR.More

Very tasty and delicious food from the starter to the main course and the dessert. We particularly liked the cod tandoori.

We had dinner here while staying close by. The food and service were both exceptional and the value for money excellent. I'd like to go back but it's a long way from London!

We had a really nice meal, which tasted pretty good - my experience of Indian food in N America has been variable, but this was ok. Now much of an atmosphere, the place emptied by 8 and the staff were cleaning up around us. Food...all good except the butter chicken which was just like tomato soup. Not very spicy, choose a spice level of 4-6 if you like it the way the Indians intendMore

In the mood for something more exciting than burgers and fries? This restaurant fills the bill! Delicious aromatic food that packs a punch. The server was very friendly too. Although she forgot to order the appetizer we asked for and didn't make it back to...check with us before we were done eating, the food we got distracted us so still think the experience was 4 star worthy. The restaurant itself was clean and the music was great. Men's washroom left a bit to be desired. Will be back though!More

We have dined in and mostly had takeout orders during the pandemic. The staff are friendly and very polite. The food is consistently good, proper portions and only fresh ingredients are used, no frozen old baby carrots like another Indian restaurant nearby… We have been...told by people of the origin of this food, that this is the most authentic. The taste – heat is customized to the customer’s preference very well. The food is flavourful and very good value. Looking forward to the pandemic being over so that full dine in and Buffet will return, but in the meantime takeout and dining still secures a great meal.More

Took my mom, family and friends to dinner to celebrate mom's 80th birthday and "wow" summed up the whole experience. The food more than lived up to the other reviews that I read when deciding where to go, best, BEST Indian food ever. Flavourful, fast,...perfectly portioned, reasonably priced. It could not have been better. We were treated to great hospitality by the staff, and will absolutely be back! Cannot speak highly enough about this experience. Run, don't walk to this hidden gem and enjoy!More

This is probably the best Indian food we have had on Vancouver Island. Authentic and flavourful curries, delicious naan bread, and their pakoras were prepared perfectly. Service was very friendly and their prices are very reasonable. We will definitely be back next time we are...in Campbell RiverMore

The food was OK, but be wary if you’re vegan or have allergies. We informed them of dietary requirements and then they bought us a diary dip - I checked and the confirmed it had dairy but this could have made my husband very ill...if we didn’t check. Easy wins would be to have nicer plates, I’m not sure if they were plastic but they felt it and had a lot of water marks on. The food tasted fine, popadums lacked pickle tray. I’ve eaten at a lot of Bangladeshi and Indian restaurants and this didn’t live up to them but it was warm food that was fine.More
