This was the worst Indian food we have ever had, we were unable to finish our meal as it was so bad- and we were hungry.

It was a Sunday evening and we did get seated as soon as we arrived. The wait staff were excellent being particularly helpful to one of our party who cannot have 'dairy'. He knew what each meal contained and cheerfully advised on what was possible. We had starters, 3 main courses, rice and naan bread. Could not fault any of... More

The food is tasteless and the service sucks. The first night we had to wait for 35 minutes to be served after getting a table and the food was tasteless. The second night we ordered a take out assuming that it will be faster. We had to wait 45 mins and when we went to ask they said 10 more... More

We had to wait 30 minutes for a table, but the food was excellent. They didn't have a hostess taking names so we stood in line with others. Once seated the wait staff was very helpful explaining the menu items and the food was excellent. Two of us shared a rice dish, chicken tiki masala and nane and had plenty.

Actually the only Indian food in. Banff.... Crowded by locals and tourists alike...food was decent and the place was jam packed due to the Labor Day weekend . Do not expect great service but not a bad place to go

Not much choices for the price. Especially fir vegetarians. Only one server/cashier to refill and take payment. Very very slow service.

Food exceeded our expectations. Naan was excellent and fresh from the tandoor oven. All three dishes tasted delicious. We ordered Butter Chicken, Lamb Vindaloo and Lamb Karahi. We are Indians and my wife's a great cook and we can vouch for the authentic taste of these dishes. Food from this restaurant rivaled the best Indian restaurants from Toronto or London,... More
