If you want some very good Indian food with reasonably low price this is the place to go. Very good and prompt service.

First time here, won't certainly be the last. Everything was top notch. Great quality food, surprisingly abundant portions and all this at unbeatable prices. Hospitality and service were excellent thanks to the wonderful Mr. and Mrs. Villiyam. Looking forward to our next visit. Highly recommended.

We ate here a few times — the set meal at 15€ is very good value with very large portions and authentic spices. Smiling service and pleasant surroundings, Bollywood TV discreetly playing in the background. Fridays and Saturdays can be very slow as they can't cope with the popularity — and all those take-aways seem to have priority!

One of the best Indian food experiences I've had the pleasure of enjoying! I went there with a group of friends and everyone got a different food ranging from Chicken Korma to Prawn Maharaja so that everyone could sample as many options as possible.

The restaurant isn't the nicest place I've been to but the food and service sure make up for it. Lamb Rogan and the Vindaloo have always been great!

If you love Indian food you have to go. Food is abundant and delicious. There is lots to choose from too. The host is extremely courteous. The restaurant as such is nothing special, in terms of decor but I appreciate the Indian 'musicals' on TV, the Indian music and their costumes. It's nice to watch and comment on their culture...
