Decided to try an Indian meal in Milan and it was quite good. The outside of this restaurant doesn’t do it any favours at all. It looks rather dowdy and the window display needs a good cleaning up. Even so, we decided not to judge it by the exterior, and went inside. It’s not a very fancy place and there... More

Very reminiscent of the good places in the East Village of New York City. Not extraordinary but totally hits the spot if solid Indian food is what you're after.

We had lunch here and I would say nothing special. The guy who served us has nothing to the with a waiter. He has just brought the food. The food was really avarage and the service was poor.

We were in Europe for a week and longing for Indian food, we read good reviews of The Dhaba and went there for lunch. The food was amazing and hospitality...impeccable.

I had the Lamb vindaloo, which wasn't as spicy as I had expected, my sister had the Rogan Josh, which she found pretty spicy. Both meals were more than enough for 2 people, next time we will share. We also ordered Naan and plain Basmatti rice. The Naan tssted great, but was a tad crispy...15 less seconds in the oven... More

You can find a quite high number of different dishes based on fish, chicken, veggy and so on. Quality is quite good and main course a a little bit big. Due to this I didn't taste dessert. I strogly suggest indial tea masala. Service is also good and waiters friendly.

Service: 9/10 Atmosphere: 7/10 Furniture: 8/10 Cleanliness: 9/10 Welcoming: 9/10 Taste: 9/10 I went over with my order and asked the chef to prepare a spicy meal (Gosht Vindalo), it made my eyes watery and my face red. In the end I licked my plate clean. It was an experience I would never forget.

The restaurant is near to the Ibis hotel and was tired so just got food from there to eat in the room. Otherwise no special... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
