We tried out this restaurant at the recommendation of a friend this past weekend when we were in Ottawa. We were surprised and delighted with the excellent quality of food, the service and warmth of the s,mall, typical restaurant. The food is southwest Indian and it was absolutely delicious!

In my opinion one of the most authentic indian restaurant in town. Watch out for the spice level, most of the plates are already extremely spicy (even when you ask for mild). Don't make the same mistake as I did; don't order a plate "medium" like I did when I went there for the first time.

I visited this place for both dinner and their lunch buffet. They have excellent food. I usually don't like buffet but this place has very good buffet choices. I was not able to try everything they laid out and I was stuffed. Good service, good food, the parking can be a bit difficult at lunch.

We made a reservation as suggested but it was never full over the Friday lunch hour. They did seem to have a lot of repeat customers. As we chatted and lingered over our drinks, the waiter came to warn us it would soon get busy. We enjoyed the large choice of items on the hot buffet. Very flavorful. I went... More

The food here is phenomenal. I suggest you go to the lunch buffet ($20) to try a variety of dishes they serve, then go back for dinner another night if you're unfamiliar with the cuisine. The staff are amazing, helpful, sweet. I highly suggest this restaurant, it's one of my favourites in the city, and the best Indian food by... More

It was my daughter's birthday party last Saturday and she wanted to eat Indian food. So we made a reservation for 7 people a few days ahead of time. When we got to the restaurant, I was annoyed that they had reserved our table right beside the kitchen, which was very loud. But I digress... I ordered a lamb meal... More

This restaurant does not look like much from the outside, but do not pass it by. It is not your regular Indian restaurant either, featuring food from the South of India it has a unique flare. The service was five star. The food is absolutely fantastic and authentic. I had a chettinad - on the Internet I seem to only... More

This is a very relaxed Indian restaurant with exquisite menu, good service and diversifies menu at a reasonable price ! We went as couple for a Saturday night dinner and the place was packed but our waiter was efficient and proposed varied choices for the two of us to share. Informal affair and great Indian food. I recommend without hesitation.... More
