This is the only Indian restaurant in Nelspruit so it's really sad that they are not up to scratch. The food is bland and lacking in the flavour and complexity you would expect from real Indian food. It's like they don't know how to use spices and instead you just get a savory bowl of gravy with some meat and... More

we have visited this restaurant couple times. The first time food tasted very good. We went back again next time we visited Nelspruit, however food did not taste the same and left us disappointed.

We wanted Indian Cuisine and they forced butter chicken as curry! Serviettes (napkins) fell on the floor and the server picked them up and placed them back on the table!!!! Awful dining experience!!!

We ordered a mixed starter platter which was dry, over cooked 'brown' food served with tomato sauce, for our main we ordered korma chicken which was pale and dreadful and this was served with naan bread which was thick, bland and unlike any naan bread I've eaten before. After anticipating a lovely curry evening, we paid our bill and left... More

Food was a little bland. Medium hot biryani was not even mild. Butter chicken was quite good. Naan was pre-made. Restaurant was quite full but not packed.

We waited for well over 45 min for food, which was charred and rice was cold and dry? Wine was expensive and atmosphere a bit icy!! The sauce at the starters was tomato sauce!!!! Hey not authentic homemade Indian hot sauce or something similar!!

Dreadful. Oumas tasteless stew with chillies. If you're looking for authentic Indian cuisine avoid at all costs.

This is a restaurant that is not known for its ambience, or service and offered me no reason to re-visit it again.

Walking in, the Resturuant looked athuentic with a great vibe. The menu had a great selection and we were very excited. There was only one other patron which we found odd given the great menu and dining area. We ordered drinks and thereafter tried to order starters when it all fell apart. From the 10 starters only one was available.... More
