Just visited this place. The set up is exquisite, but I know good food from authentic Indian food. Lot of colorant used to make the tandoor plates appear red. I would recommend the place for it's ambience (5) but not for food (1). Too bland taste - may be catered to the patrons who like Indian but cannot really tell... More

First we had poppadums and dipping sauce which had a strange unlike able taste. My wife thought better. We then went to order the Murgh chicken for $30 each to be told these were starters not main courses. What? So we ordered the onion pakora (4 pieces) and one main chicken tikka and tried to share at $60 Barbados. It... More

We went with a group of 8 and were blown away by the quality of food. We had a beautiful table overlooking the ocean. Really interesting interior and the food was an amazing mix of Indian and Thai. Definitely not inexpensive but worth the value of a high end restaurant. Don't be nervous to try this spot for dinner. You... More

The atmosphere was very good, with the exception of the cricket sound that was loudly looped through the speakers and got annoying after a while. The food was OK and relatively authentic, but like elsewhere in Barbados, there does not seem to be an understanding of how to make food spicy.

The Indian food is top notch...as good as Tamarand in nyc...two things bothered me which is preventing a 5 star review....1- they stick you in this waiting room before you get seated which is 120 degrees, they need to fix that, its very awkward...2- the baby octopus is not edible, literally tastes like rubber...the lamb, eggplant and chicken wings were...

Seating was arranged so we were facing the ocean. I got an Indian dish and my husband got Thai. The food was very good. On a starter dish we got stuffed chicken wings. Thats right stuffed chicken wings. It was delicious.

This restaurant is wildly overpriced for the amount of food you get and the quality of the food you get. The meats (or veggie options) all seem to come in the same size bowl over hot coals. Excellent and unique serving method but while the vegetarian will get a healthy portion of legumes/veggies, the meat eater will get comparatively little... More

Beautiful setting right on the water, well decorated and laid out. This place has an Indian and a Thai menu. We both opted for the Indian. The meats were well cooked and very tender, the flavors were great as well. My only criticism would be that I ordered my food hot (Lamb Vindaloo Curry) and my wife ordered her dish... More
