Really uninspired food. We got their recommended plate which comes with three curries. It was a HUGE amount of food, we couldnt eat it all, but the taste was unfortunately and surprisingly quite bland. I should have taken the norwegian guy's advice below. It really is possible to make indian better than they serve here by yourself as an amateur.

From my point of view this is the best Indian restaurant to which I went in continental Europe. In London you will find also restaurants on that level, but so far I did not manage to find another one in the rest of Europe. The food is very taste and the choice of dishes is great. I also like the... More

And I am no pro. The food was boring, no spice, not hot. And not cheap either. Cant understand how this place got so many good reviews. Stay away if you like proper Indian food.

I was expecting a very good indian restaurant but this wasn't exactly what my girlfriend and I found. The service is quite good, very nice guys but the food is just ok. Nothing special, the quantity of meat in the dishes was very poor. The taste was also very normal. I'm sure you can find much better indian places in... More

Fantastic hospitality and fantastic food. What can I say, was amazed by the size of the serving for one person. The food was just absolutely amazing for anyone going to Berlin this place is a must try. They have two locations to serve you, the second restaurant just had a grand opening. The staff was truly awesome they took personal... More

Nice vibe, good food. Lunch specials are very nicely prices. Drinks are a little over-priced. Safe bet.

Cosy Indian restaurant that serves good food. Lunch specials are a really good deal. Drinks are fairly priced. Mango lassi was delicious and the service was good. Hardly any waiting time. We can recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant is such a gem. We came here after a recommendation of our friend which said that she had great Indian food in the middle of Berlin. True enough! We ordered the Shanti and Special meals, each for 2, since we were with the 4 of us. Our table was shortly served with lovely curry soups, of 2 types,... More

We were looking for a Turkish restaurant named Hasir in Kreuzberg that seemed to have moved to a new address, when we stumbled upon this colourful Indian resto. A very friendly greeter told us that it was fate that brought us here and that we would not regret this change of venue. She found us an outdoor table and our... More

A local friend recommended this gem of a place. Superb choices, great service, lovely decor. Does not take credit cards, but that is neither unusual in Berlin nor an issue here as the prices are very reasonable. Try the grilled items!
