Here you get really excellent Indian food for reasonable prices. A great variety of dishes, Naan breads and even Indan beer.

We were recommended to try this restaurant by a waiter in another restaurant in Burgau. We were not disappointed. The food was of a very high quality and the portions were generous. We had a lamb and a King Prawn dish. Both were very well cooked and we spiced, with good flavour. I always judge a restaurant by the quality... More

We enjoyed the usual popadoms and chutneys plus a starter and main each with beers and a bottle of wine, rice, naan bread etc and it cost €52 for 2 of us. It was worth every cent. The food is delicious. The staff are lovely. The surroundings are clean and comfortable. Large car park. Nothing at all to complain about... More

This is the third year we have eaten at this excellent restaurant.The quality of the dishes is superb. One of the few Indian restaurants to serve dishes without too much gee being used. The lamb curry is made using the best quality meat and the mushroom curry is fantastic. Nan breads are light, crisp and full of flavour. The staff... More

Visited this Indian restaurant having read the reviews. We had a party of 8 and the service was absolutely brilliant. The staff were very friendly, helpful and informative about the menu. We had a variety of starters and mains and all of them were very tasty. A must visit for locals and tourists.
