We have been looking for a great Indian eating experience and finally found one in North Burnaby. Six of my family went last night and the five dishes were outstanding, the pekoras were best we have ever had, the garlic nan scrumptious. This is a five out of five for food quality, the service was wonderful and very polite - making us feel very special. Finally after years of searching we have found a gem for Indian food in Burnaby / Vancouver area. Highly recommended.

Fairly decent Indian food in Burnaby. Great service. Super friendly and attentive. Treated our group of 7, including two young children, very well. We ordered everything on a medium spice level. Ordered the tandoori chicken and butter chicken: the flavour level on both could be kicked up a lot higher, but it was good for the children. The Palak Paneer (spinach and paneer cheese) was OK, not my favourite. Also ordered aloo gobi (cauliflower and potato): pretty standard. The lamb curry by far was the crowd favourite, very tender and flavourful. Standard saffron rice and naan was also ordered. Only suggestion would be for large groups, the individuals may come back as individuals or couples or make suggestions to their friends. Make it easier for them to recommend your restaurant by providing free samosas or something tasty as an incentive for them to provide a positive review for your restaurant. Competition is tough out there.

A group of 8 of us went here for New Year's Eve dinner. The service was friendly as always and quick. It's a family run business and we have had consistent great service and delicious food. The food is low sodium and low oil but high in taste. You can choose to have mild to hot dishes. We had our hot sauce brought to us on the side so that we could all taste the variety of dishes and add the spice according to our own tastes. We tried a variety of nan bread, vegetable pakora, vegetable hot plate, mixed grill, butter chicken, chicken tikka masala, prawn masala, prawn korma, and one of my favourite dishes, eggplant Bharta. The dishes were all to die for! Prices are great and even the wine is very reasonable - $5/glass or $20/bottle. For dessert we had the Rasmalai - a type of cheese dessert which is better than cheesecake and a delicious mango icecream. We will definitely be going back again and again. Thank you to King Mahal for opening up in our neighbourhood!

We started coming to this restaurant about a year ago. My whole family likes it.

The owner is a very kind gentleman, always warmly greeted the guests. The restaurant is always clean and nicely decorated. The place makes us feel homey and comfortable. Always enjoy dining here.

We go there for lunch buffet for 5 times. Very good quality meat, veggie, salad and desserts items at $10 per person. Such a good value.

My fiancee and I ate here today for dinner. We walked in and were greeted with a smile and table service straight away. We weren't pressured into buying alcoholic beverages OR order one of everything each (our host said 1 rice would be fine between the two of us). We ordered vegetable samosas, saffron rice and butter chicken with a garlic naan each.

The food was fast, fresh and always warm/hot temperature wise. We ordered our butter chicken 'mild' and it was tasty and made with real chicken. We ate for under $30 for dinner (excluding drinks as we just had water) and I gave them a $5 tip because it was so worth it.

Fresh food, friendly, prompt service and satisfaction from each dish. Eat here for a nice dinner at a very reasonable price.
