This is one of our favorite restaurants in Kingston. We always have a fantastic meal, never disappointed in the freshness and authentic flavors of the variety of dishes we have tried. If you enjoy traditional east indian foods, this is the place to go in Kingston.

This is my favorite restaurant in Kingston; Ali and Weis, and their other brother always make you feel welcome and the food is always delicious. All our friends love it. Butter chicken, chicken korma, shrimp... it's all good.

Unbelievable service, food to die for and just a great place to take time and enjoy a meal. We have celebrated many nice occasions and the owner is very friendly.

Very authentic, delicious and reasonably priced Indian food. Staff seemed a little distant (perhaps because it was close to closing time and we were the last guests there)...

Nice location. Decent staff. Food not bad but very small portions. Object to paying an exorbitant extra amount for a very small portion of rice to go with my curry. Over-all, an inexpensive meal at a very expensive price. There are far better alternatives in Kingston.

This place has it all....great downtown location, very nice decor and most importantly excellent food. Of all the places in Kingston that I bring out of town clients, this is the only one that people ask to go back to. The food has complex tastes and is served freshly made and hot. The wait staff are very attentive and will... More
