Excellent food. We have eaten the three times because the food was so good. We tried a steamboat and it was excellent!

Personally think that this restaurant is overrated. The banana leaf dishes didn't taste good. The Ais lemon tea taste likes yesterday recycling tea which horrible.

Located on the main strip, this place is kind of just like all the other Indian restaurants, but the food is still good. The black pepper chicken was a nice change in pace from the other types of Indian food that I had been eating. The tandoori chicken, while way more sizable than the place next door, wasn't as juicy... More

The multiple waiters were very indifferent when taking our order. One waitress would take one's order, then start talking with someone else and after a minute or so, take the next order. The drinks were all just flavoured water instead of juice or shakes. The food was disgusting! I ordered the sweet and sour fish. A massive clove and many... More

My experience with this restaurant is very different from my partner's. I had the tandoori chicken, it came fast and was amazing, I wish I had ordered two. My partner ordered banana leaf rice, and they told her they didn't have it, which was okay, we got something else, but the people beside us came after us (like ten minutes)... More

We ate dinner at Kumar's but wished we had not. The food was terrible. We had one of the curries and one of the "kurmas", which didn't taste of anything and had the color of vomit. The service was bad, the waiters mainly joked around. Do not eat here if you like Indian food because it will ruin it for... More

Being from the UK with great Indian Restos PLUS having spent 4 months in India trust me - the food here is very good. The pushy (and friendly!) guys who run it have banter with all who pass on the main st. Ate here most days in the 2 weeks we spent in TR. Had several Tandoori sets (RM9) with... More

We will have to agree with Kassim, our host of our B&B; that this is one of the better Indian Restaurants in Tanah Rata. The choice of food is amazing; as the friendly staff of the restaurant will be sure that you are well taken care of!
