Food in a curry

This might be Banff's only curry house. We were a fairly large group and everyone picked a plate to share. With rice, roti and poppadoms we had more than enough to go around. The food did take a while to come from the kitchen - hopefully a sign that it was fresh cooked. The menu had a lot of... read more

Really good Indian food! We eat Indian food a lot and both agreed that food here is some of the tastiest we have ever had. I tried a dish I have never seen on a menu before with eggplant and sesame seeds and loved it. It was similar to baingan bhartha but had a crunchy texture from the sesame seeds.... More

Probably the best Indian food I have ever eaten -- anywhere. Here it is, tucked away in a quiet corner of Banff and yet is so authentic and delicious. It is sometimes understaffed and so the service can be somewhat slow, but it is definitely worth the wait. I keep coming back and am never sorry!

I called them and asked if they will honour the code. The man said yeah they will honour it and we will just have to show the coupon on mobile to them. Unfortunately... More

This is becoming a habit my wife and I have gotten into - visit Banff, go for an Indian. The menu is extensive, it will take me many visits before I have tried all that i want to try. Growing up in the UK gave me a definate appreciation of Indian food, and this is the best I've found so... More
