Absolutely amazing food. I've eaten many Indians in my time, and this place tops them all. A must restaurant if you are travelling in Greece, Rhodes.

Had a lovely Indian meal whilst away for the week, have to say the food quality was excellent and this restaurant is certainly worth visiting.

Although we have been to some Indian restaurants in Greece and abroad before, this one didn't look or tasted Indian to me at all! It's decoration looks fake and handy. Red painted walls, white painted chairs and tables covered with plastic tablecloths (!!!) Slow service and small portions; you'll need four plates if you are a hungry couple. No 2... More

We had a good dinner here with a taste of India. I have been to a lot of Indian restaurants and the overall experience was above average. I would recommend.

If you are tired of queuing outside Taman this is a great place with lovely Indian food. Don't be afraid to ask for strong food. I normally order "madrass". Here I ordered 4 on the scale to 5. A little to gentle for me but perfect seasoning for my wife. We had Saag Panir and Lamb Karahi with Raita and... More

Visited on a Sunday evening and it wasn't very busy. Complimentary poppadoms were not crisp. Starters of chicken pakora and vegetable samosas were very good. Sadly the main courses, both chicken based; madras and bhuna were made with inferior chicken. Certainly not breast meat. Very poor I am afraid. Beer was expensive as was the food for what it was....

Had a lovely evening here. Amazing food. First thing that surprised us but was great, when we ordered our currys (madras and bhuna) we were asked on a score of 1-5 how hot we wanted it and they went on to explain they would do a mild vandaloo even if you wanted the tomatoes and potato taste but not the...

Had a decent meal but nothing special. Food was ok as was the service. Didn't have the wow factor that would make us want to revisit.

Description
Since our opening on June 2, 2013, our policy has been to serve freshly cooked, authentic Indian food to all our customers according to their individual tastes. That means they can request the full range of seasoning, from mild to very spicy, for all the dishes we serve. For those who tend to avoid Indian food because of its spiciness, they now have the chance to enjoy the delicate flavors of Indian cuisine without worry.
