We had the set menu with a choice of four curried dishes for the main course,they were all very tasty,especially the venison curry that was my favourite. I'm not a big fan... More

It's a set meal, be open to new flavours, they are very mild curries not your ear bashing madras. Think it was about €30 for 9 course including wine, coffee and dessert

We are Indian food lovers and everywhere we go we always try to have the local Indian restaurant if any and specially if it is an Indian restaurant different from the typical tandoori 9€ menu of the day kind of...

If you are in Palma and you are a fan of Indian food, then this is a MUST! Every detail of the restaurant was perfect, down to to the candle lighting! To say that this is the best Indian food I have ever had is an understatement. It was one of the best meals! The fixed priced menu is very... More

This is how Indian food should be! My wife and I found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. There is a set menu every night which costs 31.50 per person, which includes 4 courses, wine and water. What a bargain! Each course is brought out by the head chef who explains the the dish and how it... More

This is certainly the best service I've ever had at a restaurant. Me and my girlfriend actually discussed how excellent the service seemed, and descided to test them a little bit. We quickly drank up our glasses of water and 10 seconds later the waitress came over to fill them. I haven't been to a michelin restaurant yet but I... More
