I usually resort to long, detailed reviews, but this restaurant will speak for itself... The food is superb and the service is fantastic! Simply put, just go, don't think about it, just go!

Up there with the most tasty Indian food. After our experiences in Melbourne Indian restaurants this was as good as any. Service was excellent, beer cold and food could not be faulted. Staff pleasant and helpful. Menu extensive and reasonable. We would go back again!

A group of 6 of us ate here, and the Indian food was very good, made with fresh ingredients and tasty sauces. But watch the spice: I ordered medium, and it was very spicy. I love hot spicy food, but this was almost too much for me, and my husband said the same about my dish when he tasted it,... More

Recommend by our hotel, was not disappointed, the place was packed and even though there was a power cut , the service was up to speed and the food just blowed our mind away. Well worth going to Livingston just for it.

They offer a fusion of Indian and African food. The service was good and the food delicious. Location is convenient in the centre of Livingstone if not the most picturesque

We dined here last night and we're not dissapointed. The serving sizes are generous and try the onion bahje they are devine. Lovely atmosphere and they even supplied mosquito repellant. The nann breads were nice and thin too not thick.

Wow this was great food. I'm allergic to milk which poses a problem with things being cooked in ghee but the chef made me my own chicken dish and rice which was super yummy. It's all fresh and tasty and proper Indian food. We had so much we ended up taking it home! If you sit outside take mosquito spray... More

We went to his restaurant when we overnighted in Livingstone on our way back to South Africa. Excellent food, friendly service and a memorable evening. I just wish we lived closer so we could revisit!
