People cal it expensive, I call it value for money. I was actually taken back by the quality of food here, absolutely above expectation. The portion size, the flavour and the quality of ingredients used is excellent. I highly recommend this place, specially for an authentic indian experience. The bhindi masala and the plain palak is a must try here.

Perfect place for Indian food in Xiamen. The atmosphere, food & service was all good. We had Curry Chicken & Tikka Masala and both were great!

I would say they got Good quality of Indian food and moreover the taste is maintained even after many years. One of the best Indian Food restaurant in my list. But still I would recommend them to add some starters like samosa chaat and other typical indian starter dishes + home delivery services, which I do miss living in Xiamen.
