The ambiance here is nice - very clean, vaguely upscale and yet welcoming. We sat in the booth area on the main floor which was nice with a view of the street. The servers brought appetizer hummus & naan which was delicious, though the naan was a bit more pita-y than I've had elsewhere. Still good! I had the butter... More

A friend from India recommended this restaurant as "most authentic" in Saint John and I can see why. I enjoyed the Bombay Chicken Curry. I asked for hot, I got HOT!! The portion was huge (I managed to only eat half and brought the rest home for lunch the next day) and the flavors absolutely beautiful. Fusion of fresh Indian... More

My wife and I were visiting Saint John, and we like Indian food. The somewhat mixed reviews of this place made me wonder, but we decided to give it a try anyway. My lamb saag was very good, and the Asian dish my wife ordered was also good. Portions are large, so be hungry or take some home. One thing... More

I tried the pad thai, which was spectacular and my husband had the lamb curry with rice also very good. The waiter and hostess are very pleasant and helpful. This was probably the most geniune thai I have had in my travels. A must stop.

The ambiance was quite nice and the service professional and friendly but when I stated how I am very sensitive to any and all food additives, especially MSG I had to change my order several times. Then I felt I was becoming a bother to them, of which I was very polite about it all. Most of their menu, it... More

A chance find on a quiet Sunday evening in St John's...and it turned to be one of the best curries we've had. Highly recommended.

We were lucky to find this restaurant after many others had closed at 9pm on a Friday night. The lamb vindaloo was great! The dish was plenty for 2 people and the waiter could not have been nicer.
