Lovely terrace under a low roof makes your outdoor dining very cozy. If you want more light just sit inside to enjoy the wide variety of intense Indian flavors. Excellent food that makes you want to take more home and have it again for breakfast!

Food was really tasty and full of flavor..The servings are quite generous which makes up for the pricey menu. Sitting outside on the patio is nice if they have the heaters going. If you like good old fashioned Indian food, this will not disappoint!!!!

Good vegetarian as well as meat options though the prawns were not plentiful. Always choose roti over the more well known naan and share with a cols Kilimanjaro beer

Authentic Indian food in the heart of Arusha! Food was really tasty and full of flavor without the heat that is normally associated with Indian cuisine. Service was good and attentive without being intrusive. If you like good old fashioned Indian food, this will not...More
