Can't get any better than this

Me and my family (four of us went altogether today for dinner) were impressed with the quality of the food that this restaurant gave us. It was a very warm atmosphere and it didn't seem too informal. I think this restaurant is a real nice surprise when it comes to having food as the standard of... read more

Tasty & cheap Restaurant. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I ordered prawns with nan. It was very tasty. But next time i will order the hot Version. Normal means not hot at all. ;)

We are from Barcelona and after several visits to India, this restaurant remember us the authentic taste of Indian Cuisine. The price is correct, the service excellent and the food incredible. I fully recommend this place.

Without doubt the best tasting indian food I have had during our trip to Spain.... It is reasonably priced and the flavour of the north indian food is brilliant. My wife being a veggie we had to look for an indian restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. Definitely recommended if you are looking for some authentic indian food after all... More

This restaurant is just around the corner from the hotel we were staying in. It is shuttered up during the day and looks very uninviting, it becomes only slightly more inviting when the shutters are up! I was not expecting much but I was very pleasantly surprised. This has to be one of the best curries I have ever had.... More

Worth a visit. If you're craving some flavor/spice after being in Spain for a bit (especially if you are vegetarian!), this is an affordable, friendly, good quality spot. Very convenient to the subway at Parra-lel stop off the Green L3 line. The food is made fresh and will satisfy. Pakoras are not crispy, possibly reheated, naan not the best (feels... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
